Most of our private news channels are unbearable for viewers’ senses. There are too much screen distractions, including tickers (moving text at the bottom of the screen), headers, and the channel’s normal visuals.
These channels can become a little bearable if we paste some masking tape on the bottom of the television screen to hide the tickers. Doing it will reduce the distractions to a great deal. I have never seen western channels abusing the ticker facility with such a dedication like we Pakistanis do.
