  1. RTM (Malaysia's state broadcaster) has since replaced those graphics as part of a group-wide rebrand.
  2. The licensing regimes are not the same; CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are cable channels, not terrestrial channels like ABS-CBN. Very few of the cable channels' operations are FCC-regulated. You'd have to have Trump (or a Dem POTUS in the case of Fox News) somehow convince the cities where the cable networks have their HQs and bureaux to cancel their business licenses/certificates of occupancy AND convince the cable operators and/or cable franchising authorities to drop the channels from their lineups. NBC, Fox, ABC, and CBS would be "easier" to deal with in that they're terrestrial net
  3. On November 15, 2006, Al Jazeera launched a 24-hour English-language news channel from its Doha headquarters, with programs and news bulletins also coming from bureaus in Washington, London, and Kuala Lumpur. Despite changes in programming, a few changes in the presenter lineup, and the cessation of news bulletins from Washington and Kuala Lumpur, the basic presentation style of the channel was left largely unchanged for 13 years: same music, same set, and (mostly) the same graphics. To kick off the new decade, Al Jazeera English has undergone the first major relaunch in the channe
  4. Eh, I'm glad it's just image branding. When I see that design I can't help but think they renamed the network, as the "F" is so overly stylized that it looks like a "V". "You're watching Fox Vox!"
  5. C-SPAN2 will also be simulcasting CBC's coverage starting at 9pm (EST).
  6. With television manufacturers and station groups starting the switch to ATSC 3.0 ("Next Gen TV",) the newest version of the U.S.'s digital television standard, I thought it would be prudent to start a thread about which stations have rolled out ATSC 3.0 transmissions. This thread is similar to the old HD News Thread from back in the day. The switch to ATSC 3.0 in the United States is voluntary. Unlike the analog-to-digital switchover (and more like the HD switch,) the switch to ATSC 3.0 is intended by both manufacturers and regulators to be more market-driven. As a result, there wi
  7. Yeah. Also, I'm genuinely curious: why does it seem like there's been a huge surge in the use of Stephen Arnold packages lately, particularly at Nexstar?
  8. Two Latin American broadcasters have made changes to their on-air presentation recently. Brazil: This past week, the local newscasts on the SBT owned-and-operated stations (Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Nova Friburgo, Belém, Brasília, Ribeirão Preto and Jaú) relaunched with a new look in line with the one used on SBT Brasil (the main national newscast) and the morning newscast Primeiro Impacto. While the graphics are the exact same, the local newscasts use different music. Here's the intro and headlines for the first edition of SBT Rio Grande (Porto Alegre) with the new
  9. Oh. 16x9 SD? Maybe I'm wrong then; I don't live in Victoria or on Vancouver Island so I can't verify if it's full HD. I'd be surprised if CHEK wasn't in full HD by now, considering how ubiquitous it is. Also, Emarsee posted a full montage of the new look:
  10. The newscasts, at least, have been HD for a few years now.
  11. In the summer of 2009, CHEK-DT in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada was on the verge of shutting down. Parent company Canwest opted to close its over-the-air E! network, leaving its stations sold off (CHCH, CJNT, etc.,) repurposed (CHBC,) or shut down (CHCA and CHEK). CHEK's employees and local business owners teamed up to buy the station from Canwest and save it from shutting down on August 31, and after securing a "stay of execution" for the station to allow time for further negotiations, the employee-led consortium and Canwest reached an agreement on September 4, 2009. The consortium purch
  12. That was the temporary set at Mercedes-Benz Stadium they used for the Super Bowl.
  13. I think of C Clarity the same way I think of Strive: I like certain cuts but not the whole package. Any cuts where the dumb vocals are nonexistent or heavily downplayed are usually among my favorites: WUSA's weekend 11pm open (they've probably switched to all cold opens since,) KENS's morning open, KIII in general...
  14. Your link is redirecting me to the Nostalgia subreddit.
  15. That's quite a departure from what they had. Also, while this change is probably just a coincidence and nothing else will change, the previous weather graphics were introduced in mid-2009, a year before the rest of the news GFX changed in September 2010. A really slow rollout of a new graphics pack wouldn't be new ground for WSB.
