I for one am growing weary of the watermark being placed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. I'm also tired of the little graphics advertising "NEXT." In some cases the graphics have grown so large they are actually obstructing important parts of the movie.
Enough is enough, for goodness sake.

It can be a bit distracting. On the other hand, I'm old enough to remember when TVs had a dial that showed you what channel you were watching. Right now, the watermarking is the only way to tell this at a glance without hitting a button. So at least they provide a small service.

I'd rather hit the button.

That's not much of a service. Because, y'know, I can remember what channel I picked.

Get rid of all overlays during a program, and especially get rid of them during films.

IMO, it's no different than corporate branding on anything larger than a fingernail clipping. The networks want to sear their identity into the subconscience of its viewers. Plus, it's free advertising for themselves.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

It's bloody annoying is what it is.

And as a wise man above said I remember what channel I am on, I chose it in the first place.
