Which network has the best "bug" on it? I know we don't like them, but they're here to stay.


When I talke about "best" and "bug" I mean about size and placement.


For starters, I'm going to nominate:


1) FXHD - it's small and stuffed all the way in the lower right corner of the 16:9 area.


2) Animal Planet HD - stuffed in the upper right corner of the 16:9 area.

The one that doesn't have a bug on the screen!



USA HD. The bug is not animated or large. Plus, SD programming does not have the "HD" branding on the bug. Along with not distorting SD programming, this guarantees that people will be less confused.*


*Compare that to TBS HD stretching shows and putting a TBS HD bug on screen and saying "Available in HD" on all shows.

HBO and/or Cinemax. The best bug is one I can't see.

All bugs must be squashed.

For animated bugs, their broadcast engineers must also be squashed.

For pop-up banner ads during program content, everyone at the offending network must also be squashed.

I don't think so. I know people have complained ad nauseum about the bugs, pop-ups, animations, whatever.


I know that the best bug is - none at all.


If that's not possible, you want it as small and as far out of the way as possible. The broadcast networks don't do it - they keep it in the 4:3 safe area, so it's up to the cable/satellite networks to do something about it.


I don't have screen capture ability, so I can't post any samples.

Yep, if you behave. You also get text messaging, in fact I've already texted a couple guys and told them they better load up on some habenero pudding.

And to say which is the "best" bug is to acknowledge some kind of acceptance of it. No way! No bugs are good or acceptable. The best bug is one in the garden, not on my screen. I hate this thread. It should be squashed like a bug.
