    That's how it always happens - ESPN relaunches with a new uniform graphics package, then everything slowly drifts away.

    The new college/high school football scoreboard got tweaked. Looks a bit better.

    Late reply but, even ABC is starting to have some of their own elements in their sports telecasts (i.e ABC's name is on the Copyright stamp instead of ESPN). Who knows maybe Disney has finally realized that placing the ESPN branding on ABC was a mistake

    Here’s ESPN’s new NBA scoreboard @24994J was taking about. Antenna is the new font.

    CBS renewed its PGA Championship rights, but ESPN has nabbed the cable rights beginning 2020.

    A unique feature? ESPN+ will be able to offer supplemental coverage during CBS's broadcast windows. I'm sure if CBS tries to use the same template they use for the Masters on ESPN (i.e. largely a CBS production but with some ESPN personalities sprinkled in), this might not be that bad.

    Change on the NBA scoreboard: more space between team abbreviations and the scores.

    Yep, that actually looks proper. NBA might be their nicest current package. Far better than the abomination that is the Monday Night Football package.

    The MNF package reminds me of what Fox threw together for their last Super Bowl, with a poorly-modified version of the old scoreboard, with other, newer graphics.

    I maintain that that was going to be FOX's new look til they saw how it actually looked and behaved on air and then they chucked it mid broadcast. The fact that they half assed modded the old scoreboard just showed they had their doubts about in rehearsals. They began reverting different inserts back to the former look as early as mid way through the 1st quarter and any sign of that package was gone by the end of the game.

    And we may not have gotten their current look which is one of their best.

    Regarding ESPN, I predict they're going to tweak the font on their MLB coverage next year. If they're trying to give every show a different look - and it's clear they are - I feel they'd probably let SC keep Helvetica and move MLB to something else (the rest of the show changed this year). Just a feeling I have.

    Is it me or is ESPN suddenly using more of the Saturday Night Football-specific graphics on non-primetime college football games? (particularly the blue and white/diamond stuff)

    Yeah, I’ve been seeing that too over the last couple of weeks.
