I dont know if anyone has mentioned this before but has anyone ever noticed all the channels and the screen clutter? I was watching Alaska the last frontier on Discovery and alot of the screen has the moonshiners bottle on the bottom and its huge not just some small icon or anything and now most shows show a hashtag isnt it kind of distracting? Not to mention the moving icons on the bottom everytime they are back from commercial. Discovery is one of the worst.

It is getting pretty bad. Watching BBCA and have text constantly in both corners. At least it's not moving.

I've even seen some with sound....

Consequences of DVR's. That damn moonshiners thing has been driving me crazy. Also nice when they cover up subtitles with some BS ad. Even better is the news channels covering important stuff up with their chyrons, especially when on remote.

Definitely bad!:(:mad::(

The worst are the large animated ones with sound, but any one that covers an important aspect of on-screen information, like intentional suvtitles, or a piece of visual evidence, are inexcusable. :nono2:

My kids scream and yell every time Cartoon Network has a premiere of some sort, Not only do they have to advertise it in the bottom right with some obnoxious layover but for some reason they need a count down ticker in the top right. I think I had it figured it that they were using almost a third of the screen..
