Default Logo placement

Hey MC,

You all are getting out of hand with your logo placement (image attached).

Can it not go in an actual corner?

Hi uelmaree123

We have escalated to the relevant channel to look into.

Apologies for disturbing your viewing.

If they watch it in 4:3 and they lose some of the logo, what is the big deal? In fact I wonder if those viewers wouldn't perhaps even prefer it? Logos are one of the biggest problems that disturb my viewing pleasure. I understand they PERHAPS need to be there but should be as inobtrusive as possible.

On that subject TCM still showing HUGE LOGOS advertising upcoming films. Having had previous complaints about this channel I doubt anything will be done to correct this SERIOUS problem.

Yeah MC I think we all understand the need for logos but I'm already paying for Dstv and I'm already watching it.... there's no need for huge obtrusive branding if I'm already a customer.

Hi uelmaree123

The logo, was it on CU or Live TV?
