Ill be the first to point out a source that is suspicious. I came across this in one of those local free magazines that every major metropolitan area seems to have. An article talking about this very topic appeared with a frame capture of a loan for an add taken supposedly from a SciFi Channel broadcast. This is the best I could find on the net, but will keep searching.



Attorney August Bullock reveals that briefly displayed subliminal advertisements sometimes appear on satellite TV Sci-fi programs.

(PRWEB) June 16, 2005 -- The next time you turn on your satellite Sci-fi channel, you might ponder whether you are watching the Twilight Zone - or part of it.

According to attorney August Bullock, subliminally flashed advertisements are sometimes inserted between the regular commercials and the shows. The subliminal ads are ordinary ads, promoting everyday items like cleaning products, computers, and eczema cream. What’s unusual about them is that they only appear for a fraction of a second - far too fast to be seen consciously.

If this is true and cable outlets are not governed against this, how long has it been employed? Also, SciFi has a specific demographic so does this imply that that group is more susceptible to this type of broadcast.

I was not sure were to put this so I put it in medical.

Well I watch the SciFi channel more than any other channel, and I have not had any strange urges to buy anything.

And if this has happened, I would think that there would be alot of media coverage, because forgive me if I'm wrong, is subliminal messaging not illegal?

I spent many years in the media industry and I will tell you what you are seeing. You are seeing a transition between local ads and national ads. The local end of Sci-Fi may be out of your state capitol or metro area and they sell ad time to lets say "JIMS AUTO WORLD". Jims ad is 29.7 seconds long and the national window ad is 29.9 seconds long. The local switcher goes back to sat programming after 29.7 so you get to see .2 seconds of the national ad for "FARLEYS HOUSE OF CLEANING SUPPLIES. No big brother trying to wreck your mind here...just some sloppy ad producing from the production companies. Sorry to blow your whole thread here!

``

i am getting prepared to view the "Tripping the Riff" premiere on the 27th
(now they've got to have extremely edgey/taboo subliminals hidden in their product)

i am certain, 'subliminal advertising' has surely evolved since the January 24, 1974 FCC ban, found here; on the 4th link titled; "Broadcast Of Information By Means Of 'subliminal preception' Techniques"

.........


source
...Or so goes the legend that has retained its potency for more than fourty years. So potent a legend, in fact, that the Federal Communications Commission banned 'subliminal advertising' from radio and television airwaves in 1974, despite the fact that no studies have ever shown it to be effective, and even though its alleged efficacy was based on a fraud...


-> in several generations, this may be one of those antiquated, Absurd, Laws-on-the-Books, which makes humerous 'filler' entertainment for the beleagured masses

I just wanted to say that SOCIAL_TAKEOVER is exactly correct. In the broadcasting biz they are referred to as "windows" or "doughnuts" (casue there's a hole in the broadcast feed where you show something local). They are just a little slopy, thats all.

Well, I haven't seen those. But I regularly tape Stargate, because Friday nights are filled with friends during the school year. So when I'm fast forwarding and rewinding, I sometimes see an all black screen with their Saturn logo, just like in the corner only filling the screen. I've tried to track it down by going in slow motion, but we have a pretty basic VCR, so it's hard to gauge how far you have to go, how fast the 'slow' button makes it go... I knew something was there, but it must have been produced by several overlapping frames, because I couldn't find a single logo frame. I don't think it matters, because I think I like the shows that I watch anyway... but what if I don't??

This is interesting, I have Direct Tv with TiVo, I will have to check out the commercials for once.

It's usually FF past the commercials and play every ten minutes or so on SG1.

The TiVo is pretty good at slo-mo, I'll post back Tuesday if I spot any Saturn or Viagra adds.

Social is correct here, i've often noticed this as well, and that's the exact conclusion I made, might still be intentional though

I hope I don't strike any nerves with people who really are against these adds, but in my opinion you would have to be very weak in mind to actually spontaneously buy something that you wouldn't normally purchase just by viewing these adds for a split second. The only way I would disagree with them is if they were for items that are obscene or if they were trying to get you to do something (like kill someone for instance). Hey, if they can spark my memory to buy TP when I'm low, more power to them!


Later,
Kata.

Perhaps they are not delivering subliminal ads as is implied. Perhaps they are delivering subliminal messages that just contain information.

I realize this may be to much of a stretch for some to fathom, but language itself contains subliminal messages. Sometimes deliberatley done on the conscious level, sometimes done without the person's knowledge they are even doing it.

If you have no knowledge of neuro-biology and neuro-chemistry, it may be a hard pill to swallow.

At any rate, what does subliminal mean to you guys? Give me a ratio, say what percentage of your brain is operating at the conscious level, and how much is being supressed into your subconscious experience.

Just a curious inquiry, not a witch hunt.

This is true...NLP uses this concept.....think the association of concepts and feelings to a particualr word, inflection, body gesture, and any combination that may prove effective.

Definately.......but I believe that working together, we can make it accessible......I do happen to have a bit of background, but it is all personal research....which just means that I may be prone to fallacious generaliztions at times....

I estimate that 10-20 percent of our brain operates on a conscious level...probably less..........but this is not to reinforce the '10 percent of the brain utilized' myth........Our subconscous takes care of the rest and it is easy to understand when you do a bit of pondering on the word 'peripheral.' There are, of course, other aspects, but that is a good place to start........

I tell ya what
me off is tv advertisements. If a company wants me to be anti their product, all they have to do is play their ad. Take for instance the new retarded Geico commercials with Speed Racer and Tony Little...I discontinued my car policy with them for those ads


I watch SciFi alot and I have yet to want any product they advertise or subliminally advertise.

Well, FredT, your post and threads I have always respected, so I'm a bit surprised in this thread's speculation from you.

But again, if you think there's something to to the reason you started this particular thread I give you the benefit of the doubt too.
