Subscription television warning screens were common during the 1980s, when the technology for scrambling live television signals was relatively new, and sometimes so basic that home-made descrambler boxes could easily bypass it.

In the United Kingdom, many subscription television channels were not scrambled until the end of the decade, with Sky One notably remaining free-to-air until 1 September 1993: cable and satellite channels often relied on dealers to get viewers to pay for reception.
