Bumper: On a blue background with a moving light blue hole in the middle, we see a close up of the text "VIDEONOW.COM" in a stretched-out multicolored oval. The oval rotates from left to right, then it zooms out to the middle of the screen. After the zoom-out, the oval turns to us, and at the same time, shines.

Variants:

  • On French VideoNow Color discs, the announcer is not heard. Instead, the music is a long synth note.
  • On VideoNow Jr. discs, the text in the multicolored oval reads "VIDEONOWJR.COM". The announcer also speaks more quickly and calmer in this variant.

FX/SFX: The oval rotating, the zoom-out, and the shining.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over: None, except for a cheerful male announcer saying "Now you can go to VideoNow.com, and check out the latest and greatest shows available for VideoNow! It's all online at www.VideoNow.com!"

Music/Sounds/Voice-over Variant: The VideoNow Jr. version has the announcer say "Now you can go to VideoNowJr.com, and check out the latest and greatest shows available for VideoNow Jr., from Playskool! It's all online at www.VideoNowJr.com!"

Availability: Very common. It can be seen at the end of all VideoNow Color and VideoNow Jr. discs, and appears before the company's End of Disc bumper from the era. The "VideoNow" variant can be seen only on VideoNow Color discs, and the "VideoNow Jr." variant can be seen only on VideoNow Jr. discs. This does not appear on the VideoNow Media Wizard discs, as they cut straight to the End of Disc bumper after the content.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.

(2005-2006)

Bumper: We see the black URL "VIDEONOW.COM", with white outlines and in the VideoNow corporate font, ripple and then settle. As it settles, a rainbow-colored puddle ripples in the background with edges of black on each ripple.

FX/SFX: The URL rippling, the puddle rippling.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over: None, except for a female announcer saying "Now you can go to VideoNow.com, and check out the latest and greatest shows for VideoNow."

Availability: Can be seen at the end of all VideoNow XP discs, and appears before the company's End of Disc bumper from the era.

Scare Factor: None.
