*** 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=]-relared 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.

* 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. Listen for information", 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.) The most annoying example happened on the 92nd episode of ''[[VideoGame/PriPara [=PriPara=]]]'', where these warnings covered the top screen for the entire episode.

* Creator/FoxKids used to have a popup with a little screen, a flashing yellow arrow, and picture of the SeriesMascot for whichever show was coming up next (i.e. Goggle boy, red ranger). It would show up during the third act and the tag. They used similar icons for their commercials.

** During the Sci-Fi Channel run, a pop-up of the SciFiChannel logo would appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen, often obscuring Crow T. Robot during the theater scenes. This was so annoying that viewers successfully petitioned Sci-Fi to move their logo to the other side of the screen.

* SciFi channel had a bug for their "Trek 2.0" version of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', which included the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' door chime. They also play ''Next Generation'' reruns. Yes, they had a pop-up ad (for another show) which included a sound that was taken from the show that was actually playing.
** SciFi loves running half-screen ''Ghost Hunter'' popups in the middle of ''Series/{{Eureka}}''.

** Nick promoted ''Nick Studio 10'' by having it '''''interrupt shows to show a random piece of footage.''''' Naturally, this led to the block getting a LOT of backlash and a swift cancellation. They also did the same to promote other shows like ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' by having a promo cut in immediately after a show's intro is finished.

* Though technically not a pop-up, the "TV ratings" logos used on American TV appear to be getting bigger and bigger, with it now not uncommon for the icon to over as much as 1/5 or more of the screen, obscuring the scene noticeably. Fortunately, rumors at the time of their introduction that they'd be required on DVD releases as well turned out to be untrue--strangely enough, though, one TV rating bug appeared on a VHS release of the ''Series/ReadingRainbow'' episode "Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin".
