Static TV

Bring your old television's static noise, also known as visual snow, to your computer screen with this Static TV screensaver for Windows. By default, the noise is made up of black and white pixel patterns, but you can choose other colors via the screensaver's settings menu, where you can also adjust the static density and the screen resolution. Please refer to the installation instructions if you receive an "operating system not supported" error.

Very nice screensaver, only 4 stars cause when you're looking at it near, your eyes will fall out.

It's compatible with Windows 10. You need to extract downloaded STATICTV.EXE file with WinRar and then install extracted StaticTV.scr. Right clicking on it and choose "Install".

Screensavers Planet: Thanks, we have now repackaged the screensaver in a ZIP file.

Note for Windows 10 users, this screensaver is incompatible.

Screensavers Planet: You can work around this: right-click the STATICTV.EXE file, select Properties, select the "Compatibility" tab, check the box in front of "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" from the list. Click "OK" to save the changes, then double-click the STATICTV.EXE file to start the installation program. You should no longer get the error message.
