* Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and the Creator/DisneyChannel LOVE to advertise when they have a new movie premiering soon. They'll put up a [[NewContentCountdownClock timer]] counting down to ''HighSchoolMusical'' or ''Film/TheCheetahGirls'' or whatever they're going to show up to 24 hours beforehand.

* An example not advertising a show happens sometimes on Japanese networks whenever an earthquake is about to occur. First, a large pop-up showing a map of where the earthquake will happen is shown on screen along with text mentioning the affected areas, accompanied by the sound of chimes and a narrator saying "This is an early earthquake warning. Prepare for powerful tremors", which repeats twice. Sometimes, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_l7x_Tes9s two of those graphics will pop up at once and cover the entire screen.]] It can be a major distraction for anyone watching whatever program is currently on.
** TV Tokyo has a variant of this on their {{Kodomomuke}} anime, where text will appear on the top of the screen. First, text saying "TXN News" will pop up, and then it will show text mentioning a piece of breaking news (usually about an earthquake, tsunami, volcano eruption or typhoon.) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4xwqvaQgks Here's an example of a kids' show airing with this type of warning]].
*** TV Tokyo has had non-breaking news examples on their kid's shows as well, both of the happening during the summer of 2016. During [=PriPara=]'s 100th episode, they placed references to the number 100 throughout it. If viewers were able to list all the times it appeared in the episodes, they'd be entered to win [=PriPara=]-related prizes. There was another campaign in August where viewers had to spot TV Tokyo's banana mascot in each of their kids' shows and tell them what scene it appeared during. The prizes varied based on the show, but [=PriPara=]'s was noteworthy for giving away several pieces of merchandise that were not released yet at the time of the campaign.
** It's not just TV Tokyo who puts on screen messages during kids' programming. TV Asahi used to do this, until [[https://i.imgur.com/8xNnWXO.jpg one such incident]] drew a lot of complaints. It didn't help that their text font was a larger size than the one used by TV Tokyo.

** It wasn't just Japan that did this. NTV, a channel based in the Canadian province of Newfoundland, used to (until about 2008 or so) run news tickers during some of their early-morning programming (and possibly their primetime lineup as well). One time, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efzxVpFRIe0 they ran]] a RapeAsDrama-related ticker during the kids' show ''Ricky's Room''.
* Back to TV Tokyo, they've done non-news related popups
on their kid's shows as well, both of the happening well. For example, during the summer of 2016. During [=PriPara=]'s Anime/PriPara's [[MilestoneCelebration 100th episode, episode celebration]] in 2016, they placed references to the number 100 throughout it. If viewers were able to list all the times it appeared in the episodes, they'd be entered to win [=PriPara=]-related prizes. There was another campaign in August around the same time where viewers had to spot TV Tokyo's banana mascot in each of their kids' shows and tell them what scene it appeared during.

* One AnimalPlanet bug for a then-upcoming show about training dogs to perform various cool tricks used the "pause the actual show" trick. A frisbee would fly in, the current show freezing while a dog caught it, then the host would walk up, praise it, and lead it away before letting the show continue.
