Systems and methods for unobtrusively queueing advertising are disclosed. In a first “opt-out” method, the promoted content or advertisement may be automatically queued for display after the present video, and the interstitial or banner advertisement may include a ‘remove’ or ‘skip’ button to remove the content from the queue. Accordingly, the promoted content may immediately be made available for the user for subsequent viewing, unless the user clicks the remove or skip button to remove the content from the queue. The button may appear for any length of time, such as during the promotion or advertisement, as well as after the promotion or advertisement. For example, in some implementations, the button may be visible for a minimum period of time to allow the user to react, such as 20-30 seconds, even if the advertisement is of shorter length (e.g. 5-10 seconds).
