The Station Logos do not bother me, as long as they are small and not animated. The Pop-Ups, Scrolls, Banners and Snipes are a whole other thing, I'm glad I don't have to put up with them. The Snipes come at the most inopportune of times. For example you are watching a suspense movie featuring two policemen tracking a suspect. One of them whispers to the other "Hold Still, I think I heard something". Suddenly a VARROOOOOMMMM!! pierces the silence as an animated Motorcycle Gang races across the bottom of the screen, followed by a banner advertising a show about Motorcycles follows the movie. Pop-ups also occur in a similar manner. A show you are watching takes place in France's Cote d Azur (Riveria). To make it realistic the actors are speaking French. What's that, you don't understand French? (Because you elected to take German 101 instead) Wait! Here come a Subtitle, it reads, "President reacts to Tornado Outbreak, News at 11:00." As I mentioned a number times before the Networks and Stations show NO regard to their viewers. Well, they don't have me to push around.
