White Dot is a small anti-television organisation based in the UK. It encourages people to not watch television, and also to switch off televisions in cafés and pubs with devices such as the
TV-B-Gone. It also organises what it calls "zocalo" (a Mexican term for a town square) events where people are requested to turn off their televisions, go outside and talk to their neighbours.
The organisation is named after the white dot that appeared on old television screens when switched off.
White Dot is based in the area around
Brightonin England. It is a member of the US-based TV turnofforganisation.
It is a part of a small anti-television movement. It is associated with Cornfield electronics, the manufacturer of TV-B-Gone, and has published two books- Get A Life! The Little Red Book of White Dot, and Spy TV: About Interactive Television.
