    This is NOT an “ad-free” stream! The video I was getting was just INTERRUPTED by an AD! WTF???

      We were advised that the streaming video was supposed to be ad-free, but as you note, it was not. The video streaming was provided through the convention, not the Hugo Awards web site. We do not have further details of the situation.
