    Hello all,

    Not sure which forum to put this in. I switched on my Xbox today and there was an advert for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Does this not seem bizarre to anyone? Should there not be an advert for a sack load of Windows phone products?

    I just worry about MS sometimes. They are advertising an Android phone yet barely promote their own gear.

    Samsung paid for the advert so there it is.

    I 100% knew that was coming and I accept your point. However, can you imagine any other company doing it?

    You can't tell me they need the money that badly.

    I am sure it's because Microsoft has a 3rd party in charge of advertising.

    Cheers for the responses guys. I had suspected as much, but still.... Poor show.

    It's also possible that Microsoft allows Samsung to advertise all of its products, since Samsung does make Windows Phones and Windows 8 PCs/tablets.

    I would anticipate that denying certain companies ad space by discrimination could incite law suits, so I'm sure it's handled separately to prevent legal issues.

    The ironic thing is that I fired up the Channel 4 app to see if they had the programme that I wanted. The had it, I started playing and the first load of ads were all Lumia phones.
