Good afternoon all - I've been researching this subject for a few days now, but am unable to find a definitive answer. I like the look and feel of the News app, but it is just littered with ads.

Thanks,
festus

Pretty sure it requires CNAME deep inspection @festus77 . I don't see any ads in the Apple News app with Pi-hole for example (I'd imagine the same is true for Adguard Home which also supports it).

I don't think this is something that Diversion can solve; I believe dnsmasq would need to add this functionality for it to "work" in Diversion.


Or try this list:

Thanks so much HairyA00 !!!!!!!
I'll look into this a little more in depth later today.

Edit: About 5 hours later - been reading Apple News app for about an hour now - no ad after adding "EasyPrivacy" list to AdGuard.
Thank you! Thank you!
