There is a version of Bad TV in Final Cut Pro X, but the version available in Motion has more controls. I’ve produced Bad TV a4d:
Here are some examples of different looks using the effect:
Here are the controls:
Waviness: Sets the maximum horizontal distortion.
Roll: The vertical position of the clip.
Color Synch: The amount that the red, green and blue components are offset from each other.
Saturate: How much colour is added or taken away from the clip.
Number of Scan Lines: How many scan lines are added to the clip.
Scan Line Brightness: How much brighter the scan lines seem than the clip.
Scan Line Proportion: The thickness of the scan lines.
Static: The amount of static noise added to the clip.
Static Blend: The blend mode of the noise – changing this helps the static become more visible if your clip is primarily very dark or very light.
If you turn on video animation curves, you can use them to control the speed that the image rolls:
In this case the clip will roll up, roll down and roll back to the original value.

It includes an installation script for Spherico’s Motion Template Tool application, if you don’t have it on your Mac, download it. It is a freeware/donationware tool that simplifies effects installation for Final Cut Pro X users. MTT installs effects for Final Cut Pro X in the correct folders, creating them if need be. You don’t need to have Motion 5 or MTT installed for these effects to work.
Once you have MTT installed on your computer, double-click the ‘Install Bad TV a4d 1.0.mtt’ file.
If you don’t want to use MTT, install these effects in Home / Movies / Motion Templates / Effects / Stylize:
