    The only way to show Microsoft that you dont want ads in Windows 10 and all the other stupid things they are doing is: Dont use Windows 10. Go back to Windows 7 or 8.1 and let them know you dont like it. Sadly, there are only a few people, like me, that they will do that. And so this will continue. Thats too bad.

    Microsoft should not get out of the media business or in general consumer services. What they have always failed to do is make their consumer experiences better than the competition.  While I subscribe to Groove and have since it was Zune, it has recently gotten much better. What they need to do is offer a family pass for those that are listed as family members (up to 6 accounts) where they can share access to the Movies and Videos, Books(Audiobooks too please), Music, and Games.  If MS did this and made the experiences second to none, I can see many people choosing to purchase their entertainment solely from MS especially if MS gets all of these services working on iOS and Android.
