We recommend that you do not allow a still image to be displayed on your television screen for an extended period of time, as doing so can cause a permanent residual image (burn-in) remaining on your screen. 

Examples of still images include: 

  • Channel logos and certain Channel formats; 
  • images displayed in a 4:3, 14:9 and 16:9 mode that are different to your television set up; 
  • on-screen information (for example tickers on news channels) that are part of programmes; 
  • Digital Guide; 
  • games and Interactive Services (including any on screen icons); and 
  • audio channels. 

Rear Projection and LCD televisions are at a higher risk of burn-in. These televisions are more prone to burn-in during the first 200 hours of use. Always consult your television manufacturer’s manual for proper operating instructions. 


Television is by its nature a flickering medium. Programmes and clips on Our Services may contain changing image sequences, flash photography, and/or intermittent images, backgrounds and patterns. Viewer discretion is advised.  

If you have a photosensitive condition such as epilepsy we recommend you consult your treating doctor prior to watching Our Services. If you experience dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of awareness, disorientation, involuntary movement(s), or similar symptoms while watching Our Services we recommend that you cease watching immediately and consult a medical professional before resuming watching..
