The Travel Channel has this expanding bug reminding the viewers how annoying they can be, that would often enough cover permanent on-screen subtitles until they told the shows to move their subtitles out of the way. Discovery Channel keeps their new big obnoxious bug in view on the bottom-right and places a banner advertisement (such as Bass Pro Shop) on the left during programming. Their new black hole graphics, made to look like a text message, periodically suck the life out of the program you are now watching by covering a large portion of the screen with upcoming programming reminders. I can't remember offhand, but one or perhaps two of the big Networks are completely covering the bottom-third with an animated upcoming programming advertisement. And not to feel left out, the local channels are inserting their ads for the 11pm news with a headline banner during network programming. And, when you do watch for breaking news they like to referrer you to follow their Facebook page or use their stupid app to get updates on the story rather then breaking into programming and serving the whole community. And of course the ID bug isn't about ID at all, if it was the bug would be there during commercials. The phallic symbol does nothing to impede someone recording the program as they don't care. It is as if it's sole purpose is to annoy the people legitimately watching the program. Whether it is cable news or some other channel filling the screen with as much animated nonsense as they can, it's not as bad as this example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YQ_HGvrHEU At least not yet. And for those that claim to ignore the on-screen graphic mess, marvelous, you're part of the problem.
