Makes sense as most viewers know what channel is PBS but I suppose that now that there are more sub channels as well as others on cable/satellite, each wants to differentiate themselves with some being more annoying than others. On 49.3, the logo is a bit smaller so that could be done on 49.1 as well.I also took my mock up logo and placed it over the existing on-screen logo currently seen on 25.1. Resized it down to the current one and increased the transparency. It didn't look anymore bothersome. But yes, I don't know why PBS all of a sudden needs to spell out their initials. It just takes up more space, as demonstrated by WEAO. Just getting rid of the "PBS" initials and shrinking the logo to a slight degree would be significant enough.
