That's nice, but the last "during the movie" popup graphic I saw on that channel was for Outlander.

Right, Starz is usually pretty bad with it but at least this program (itself) was unlittered. I wonder how long that will last..

And speaking of how long something will last, the usual HBO and HDNET Movies presentations still appear spotless and unlittered [except of course for promos, which is somewhat understandable, I guess, sorta..].

The sensitive, intelligent managers at HDNET movies and HBO have been our last holdout, ....that is, maybe until Murdoch sinks his claws into HBO.

Have you watched a movie on HDNET Movies? It's pretty decent. While I have seen a channel bug and a kid's scene bug, I have not seen a snipe nor end credit interference.

My local CBS channel now puts their channel number and a duplicate CBS logo slightly up and to the left of the normal semi see through CBS logo for about a minute at the start of shows. To make it extremely annoying, its about 50% larger...solid Silver with white edging.

.

There he goes again... Good Ol' R. Reagan's favorite Troll line !

At least Fox Sports 1 has discontinued the use of the ticker for the National League Division Series.

PS is there any reason why I can't use screenshots to upload images from my phone?

Directv is having a free weekend of the premium channels and last season of Banshee is playing on More Max. The hashtag is still there.

I was hoping a Max Go app would be available on a Playstation or Roku by now.

Examples of on-screen clutter covering subtitles:

First Alert Weather Banner

Our local CBS station in Washington, DC, WUSA, now sees fit to add a "First Alert Weather" banner at the bottom of all programming. They have shrunk down the sides to make the banner fit. No amount of complaining to the station has changed their mind. I don't need to know the temperature, wind chill and freaking air quality 24x7!

24x7 I agree, that would be awful! You'd think CBS would have something to say about a station that advertises 24x7 over their programming.....
The worst show to watch for scrolls, and it's on for the whole 4hrs they broadcast is the Today show. They have several scrolls, one on top of each other, the NBC bug and other various bugs Reminds me of a old MSNBC parody skit where basically the whole screen was covered by scrolls and bugs, only a tiny area in the middle of the screen was visible! Sadly that comedic skit is becoming all to much reality

I tried lots of youtube searches to no avail I'm pretty sure is was a parody of MSNBC and I believe it may have been on SNL(not sure though). I've seen a link posted here on AVS but not sure if it was this tread.....it should really be the clip for this thread.

Actually, I believe it was The Bloomburg Channel.
