    Hi everyone,

    I'm not sure if this has been answered, but when looking at movies I've purchased in iTunes, some have "AD" in the little bubbles (like the HD, 4K bubbles). One thing I've noticed is that AD doesn't show up for the same movies on my iPad Pro 2017.

    Anyone know what this means? The nomenclature makes it hard to look up on Google, as it keeps thinking I'm searching for Apple TV 4K ads.

    Thanks

    Ad is VoiceOver over for blind and those with bad eyesight. As in "door opens slowly"
