News channels in india - taking the whole screen

One thing i noticed about news channels in india - there is just too much information scrolling across the screen. Check this screenshot - there are headlines scrolling at the bottom, headlines changing right above it ... and then there is the translation into english (this news is in english, while the speaker is using hindi) which is again continuously updating. for a viewer, it is extremely annoying and distracting. even in the US, news channels such as CNN have scrolling news bars at the bottom - but i dont think occupy about 40% of the entire screen (including the captions etc.)
