    Hi All,

    I appologise if anyone knows this already.

    www.logofreetv.org.uk is a new web campaign against permanent DOGs and LOGOs on mainstream UK television.

    The core of the campaign is a simple online petition to the effect of:


    "We believe that viewers should have choice about logos on mainstream UK television".

    We are now 33 days old, and we have 151 members. If you believe in this principle, we would LIKE your support.

    Each month, as a group, we plan to send a simple email together to a selected broadcaster's management. (Should take just a few minutes effort).


    As our support grows, one day, we may exert some influence back on our broadcast suppliers.

    There are numerous reasons why you might want to support this campaign. Aesthetic, cultural, commercial, or the possibilty that logos can theoretically burn into your hardware.


    The web site includes a viewers comment facility, links to other anti DOGs sites, an argument, records of complaint, and various info. about channels. All members are encouraged to particpate.

    I also promise to respect your privacy and their will be NO SPAM.

    In about one weeks time, we are intending to feature someone at SKY as TV exec of the month, in response to the recent SKY rebranding. This is a great opportunity to make yourself heard, with the rest of us.

    Thank you all for your time.

    Isn't it interesting how everyone squeals the moment the main five (BBC1/2 ITV CH4/5)channels dare to use DOGs while most Sky and ITV Digital viewers seem resigned to the on-screen clutter everywhere else!
    I really hope that newcomers to digital TV viewing will not become complacent about these logos and will actually complain to SKY / BBC / ITV etc.

    ******End of Rant*****

    Everyone should get over to that site and give their backing. Logos potentially burning themselves into my hardware is scum sent by satan. Needs to be removed.
