Implied programs[edit]

Other characters may refer to additional programs that may not be viewable by the player:

  • On days without news, Isabelle may bring up something she watched on TV the night before, during the daily island-wide broadcast in New Horizons. It's not clear whether all of the programs mentioned (particularly documentaries on specific topics) can be watched by the player.
  • Maglevs in Love – A show about anthropomorphic maglev trains in love mentioned by peppy villagers in New Horizons as something they watched before thinking up a DIY recipe. The villager will invariably say that one character, Maglev Mike, took their relationship "off the rails".
  • Pointed Love – A romantic soap opera about porcupines mentioned by Sable on Thursdays after befriending her in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf. She will mention to the player that the two main character constantly break up and get together again. Additionally, in Wild World, Sable will say, "I wonder... did Reginald survive the de-quilling procedure? And who is Esther's mystery porcupine? Oh, I can't wait to watch it tonight!" In City Folk, she says she is watching season 4, and in New Leaf, she mentions that the show is now titled Pointed Love: <current year> (i.e. Pointed Love: 2020).
  • Pointed Questions - In New Horizons, Sable will mention a true-crime show on Thursdays instead. According to her, the distric attorney on the show is aways badgering the witnesses.

Trivia[edit]

  • Resetti Surveillance Center has a TV inside the building that plays a non-watchable show.
    • The TV in the Surveillance Center has been replaced by a normal TV in New Leaf.
  • The exercise machine is the same one in a Nintendo 64DD promo.
