"I would like to complain about having the TV channel logo displayed throughout a programme, which does three things especially when the logo is blaringly apparent like the 'tiny pop' logo for example; 1. reinforces my irritation towards that channel for imposing this upon us, 2. possibly does harm to the screen especially if kept on that channel for any length of time, 3.Ruins any beauty that programme may have had visually, imagine if the makers of a film did the same thing throughout a films viewing especially if it were in 3D!"
