TV screen being blocked by....

Not even sure what it is called but when I tune in to QVC and or HSN there is a square ad or memo or whatever blocking the lower right side.  Seems some person or product is constantly being featured with the instructions to select it.  Sorry I seem vague but I have no clue what is being offered and frankly I don't care.  It obstructs my view so  I tune out and watch something else.

@bonnielu    I've noticed this too and don't like it as well.  If I can't see the entire product, then I don't need to watch.  

Interestingly enough, the other shopping channels' screens are not obstructed.  Hmmm.

@bonnielu   I have Comcast cable.  Hit the exit key on your remote and it will clear it away.

 

Someone mentioned they had learned it from their husband on a thread from a few days ago.  Fortunately, I had already figured it out when this first started happening quite  a while ago.

 

Best,

Hit exit or escape on your tv remote.

Yes, I have Comcast.  I was not sure if this was QVC or Comcast.  In any case annoying.  I don't watch that often but this is one more reason to tune to another station.  Thanks.

Why do we have to keep hitting the exit button every time we tune in to QVC or HSN?  There should be some way to get rid of that annoying feature that they added.

Wondering if it is a DEAL from QVC with Comcast. Annoying and invasion of property.privacy... whatever.  I might just complain.  I pay them enough to leave me alone.
