Tele1st - "Scrambled Delights" (1984)
Here's an example of some scrambled programming on Tele1st. As Chris (Phantom) described earlier, we see the picture cycling between normal and inverted (negative) colors. And the sound has a constant sharp percussive beat in the background while the program audio sounds like it is smooshed together.
All in all, I wouldn't have wanted to be a teenager on drugs while watching this.
I edited together some segments separated by fade-outs. This was worth $25.95 a month? Cheap cooking shows?
