I'm watching the programing I pay for. Informing me what I'm watching now, followed by what's on next,
followed by what to look forward to next week on this network. It seems to get more invasive every day.
It's a simple question. Technology has solved the problem of pop-ups on my computer. Is someone working on the same emerging annoyances on the tv.

A large number of the stations do it here in Canada and have done so ever since I can remember watching TV. They do it near the end of the middle or near end of a show to keep you interested and watching their channel to encourage higher ratings.

1. Ignore them for a few seconds until they go away.
2. Don't watch TV.
The stations do this, and the shows you are watching are broadcast with these "pop-up ads" already recorded into them at select times. (Unless it's something live like a football game... then I'm sure a technician starts them at an appropriate time.) There is no way around seeing these, short of not watching TV.
