* Creator/DisneyChannel did it for, among other things, the ''HighSchoolMusical'' movies. New movies, big premieres or events or even just theme blocks can also get one. What makes it particularly annoying is that the countdown timer will be ''HUGE'' blocking out significant portions of whatever program is actually on, especially and frequently actors' faces.

To drum up excitement and anticipation for the release of new material, popular media will have a NewContentCountdownClock which sits (not at all unobtrusively) in the corner of the screen counting down the hours and minutes until the most anticipated new material.

Particularly {{egregious}} cases (at least in the case of TV) will have the clock fixed in place so that it's even present in the corner of the screen ''during the commercial breaks''.

* A station in Milwaukee counted down the minutes to the SuperBowl during their newscasts when the Packers were in Super Bowl XLV... from the moment they won the NFC Championship. [[LogicalExtreme That's 336 hours of countdown time]].

* CNN and MSNBC always do a countdown for a big presidential speech; every news channel will also count down to a "polls close" time (or in other terms, for CurbstompBattle votes, the time they declare a winner) for an election.
* ABC NEWS had one counting down to the Royal Wedding of William and Kate.
* At the end of the preceding episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'', SkyOne did this for the premiere of ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. Since they forewent an ad break between the two, and the countdown only occurred over the end credits, nobody minded too much.
* As part of the hype surrounding the 2003 invasion of Iraq, MSNBC put up a clock counting down to the deadline for Saddam Hussein's surrender. ''TheDailyShow'' added sound effects from ''TwentyFour'' and a graphic of Jon Stewart's dismayed reaction to the timer.
