NBA 2K19 on the North American eShop and many other digital platforms? The game received a limited-time 95% discount, taking it from the regular price of $ 59.99 all the way down to just $ 2.99. Even though people who do not play sports games on a regular basis find this deal hard to pass up
Unfortunately, though, some of these new players got quite the shock when they were seemingly forced to watch "unskippable ads" paid game before each session. Sure enough, It has led to immediate outrage and a lot of confusion online. Although these 2K TV advertisements are reported elsewhere as a new addition to the game, this is apparently not the case.
According to veteran ballers, these in-game video advertisements are nothing new and can be disabled in the game's settings menu . Reddit user Totalnoob1
"You can turn off 2k tv in the setting."
A Reddit user over on the PC Gaming subdistribution known as iHicham added to this:
"yeah those ads are not new at all"
Eventually, this information is spread over multiple subdirits – including the Nintendo Switch one. While it is still a questionable practice for developers and publishers to insert video advertisements within paid games, it's now at least clear new players can disable 2K TV in the settings menu
