Think I read somewhere that the blocked ads are downloaded anyway, just pushed elsewhere (to adblock's servers?) Not good for the limited mobile data caps we have, unless someone could correct me if I'm wrong.

AdAway does the job so far though, uses the already existing HOSTS file in Android to stop any ads from being downloaded.

Sweet :)

Wonder if I can side load this to my Logitech Revue.

There's also adfree (free app) that alter's the host files https://play.google.....android.adfree however, I thought it required root access ?
It works well but came across 1 or 2 apps that just goes crazy with it enabled.
