Just over half an hour to go… sitting here with my camera phone ready to blog them straight up to the web, and the DVD recorders supposedly going to jump in to action at 5:56am… we shall see (never used the timer record before tonight…!)
Well they’re not there for Sky News Today. Doesn’t look like it’s going to happen today… I’d have thought Sky would be making a big thing of it in the press also, ITV and BBC both had pieces in the Guardian when they did their revamps.
Problem is that it is not really a big revamp. I think the changes are going to be quite subtle so it may not be officially announced as a revamp. The changes will probably be bigger behind the scenes as technology changes are involved.
Look closly at the sports news. The red tab on the bottom left of the screen says “NEWS” faintly in the background of the main story subject – eg – “FOOTBALL” Is that all the hype was about???
Noticed that the on-screen graphics for the Arsenal – Chelsea match on Saturday [Sky Sports 2] seemed different; the Red/Blue bits at the bottom of the screen that they put the players and team names on. Could be wrong, but they definitely looked like they had been tidied up, more blocked. (If you know what I mean.) So I thought that the new graphics for Sky News would be something similar.
Definitely nothing has changed on Sky News today and no doubt Johnnie will be a little bit miffed at the “hype” comments from a Sky representitive! So we shall have to wait see what happens, won’t we?
Johnny maybe mad at the source of the new graphics story but this site is normally accurate where sky news is concerned and the new graphics seem to of kept getting put back so maybe thats happend again or maybe the change is to small to notice. Either way sky news is a great channel and this is a great website.
Indeed. Hype is good! Of course, it also gives us a new game to play every morning now doesn’t it; checking to see if they have changed their on-screen graphics yet? As I bet that’s what we’re all doing first thing when we get up eh?
