    It seems that Samsung has started pushing notification advertisements to certain users according to AndroidPolice. One of the ads comes from the bundled Peel Remote App, which is interesting given their latest statement. It appears that the ads are delivered using the Samsung Push Service which is meant to deliver notification support for things such as Samsung Pay, Samsung Link and many others.

    Regardless, this is most likely going to turn out to be a very unpopular feature among Samsung’s customers, particularly given that one of the ads was for the Galaxy S6 edge+. You should also be aware that Samsung isn’t the first company to practice push-based notification ads, after HTC used the same sort of system to advertise for the latest Fantastic Four movie.
