Gold members shouldn't get ads to begin with, this method will block all ads on the dashboard, plus YouTube and Microsoft edge.
  1. Head to settings > network > advanced > dns > manual
  2. Input the primary DNS: 198.101.242.72 and secondary DNS: 23.253.163.53. If these codes don't work, go here https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/instruction.html#instruction OR https://alternate-dns.com/
  3. Ads will now be gone from all apps, including Microsoft edge and YouTube

Make sure you fully reboot xbox for changes to take place.

Nice.
I normally play on my Xbox 360 (don't ask why) and I already have gold, so I don't need this - but thanks.

This is actually a great tutorial for people with a small bandwith limit for each month. Good work!

This has worked for me for months but this week I've been getting adds again in YouTube and the dash :frown: I never changed a thing and verifying my settings are all good and the same hasn't fixed a thing. Crazy... Has anyone else got adds again ?

Apparently doesn't work anymore, closed.
If it does work, report the thread to be opened again.
