What do you call the stuff on the TV when there's no picture?

In English we call it "snow", or "static", or "the stuff on the TV when there's no picture."

I learned today that in Sweden, the established term is myrornas krig, which translates to "the battle of the ants."

Better, I think. (Thanks, dbrock.)
