  1. RTM (Malaysia's state broadcaster) has since replaced those graphics as part of a group-wide rebrand.
  2. 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!"
  3. 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 will be no mandate for new TV sets to include ATSC 3.0 tuners and no subsidy program for ATSC 3.0 equipment (like the converter box coupons from the ATSC 1.0 switch) will exist. Notably, ATSC 3.0 signals are not subject to the same must-carry rules for pay TV providers as ATSC 1.0 signals. I'll try to keep this post as up-to-date as possible, so feel free to reply with any updates or suggestions! ---- Markets that have active or experimental ATSC 3.0 stations This list also includes stations that are undertaking trial broadcasts. Raleigh-Durham: WRAL Phoenix: KFPH-CD, KASW Dallas: KSTR, KTXD Las Vegas: KSNV, KVCW, KLAS, KTNV Nashville: WTVF, WKRN, WZTV, WUXP, WNAB Orlando: WRCF-CD Pittsburgh: WPGH, WTAE, WPNT Portland: KPDX, KPTV, KATU, KGW, KOPB, KOIN, KRCW Santa Barbara: KSBB-CD Salt Lake City: KUTV, KJZZ, KTVX, KUCW Austin: KXAN, KBVO, KNVA, KEYE Oklahoma City: KOCO, KFOR, KAUT, KOKH, KOCB Washington: WJLA and WTTG are planning to run an 8-week trial of ATSC 3.0 - no start date announced yet Station groups that have announced ATSC 3.0 deployment plans Some of these groups are acting in concert with other groups to launch ATSC 3.0 services.

  4. 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?
  5. 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 look - the graphics (except for the name) and music are the exact same on all the other stations. Note that SBT Rio Grande still uses the 2016 graphics to introduce the sponsorship plugs, at least in this edition: Prior to SBT Brasil, some SBT-owned stations also run evening newscasts, namely the ones in Nova Friburgo, Porto Alegre, and Brasilia (SBT São Paulo gets an "early edition" of SBT Brasil in lieu of a local evening newscast). Here's the intro to the Nova Friburgo version, SBT Cidade; note the different music. While local morning newscasts on SBT-owned stations were a lot more common a few years back, nowadays only the station in Jaú has one. The music is the same as the midday version (the first video in this post). Personally, I prefer the 2016 graphics and music to this, but I have a hunch as to why SBT did it. The network's been on a consolidation streak lately (the various national news programs on SBT all had different looks and graphics until 2016 or so,) so this is may be an attempt to bring the local newscasts completely in line with the national branding. Also, by leaving out any mention or hint of locality in the local intros barring the name (as compared to the map in the 2016 version,) it's easier for the affiliate stations of SBT to adopt the new look as well. Unlike Globo, whose affiliates share the same look and feel as their O&Os, SBT's are a smorgasbord of different looks (this montage is from 2018 - the affiliate stations start at 1:11 in the video): Also unlike Globo and Rede Record, whenever an SBT affiliate wanted to use something similar to the O&O look, they would get a somewhat pared-down version of the O&O package. Note the difference between the "full-featured" version used on the O&Os (except for Ribeirão Preto [SBT Verdade], which used something different) and the bare-bones pared down version (here's the one used by affiliate TV Amazônia in Amapá - the newsroom shot at the end is totally generic, by the way, it's the same on all the affiliates that use this package). Chile: After hinting at the relaunch when they debuted their new multipurpose studio back in January, Mega recently revived the name Meganoticias for their newscasts, putting the Ahora Noticias branding to bed after six years. The music, while different, carries over the signature of the Ahora Noticias theme. Here's the sponsorship plug and intro to the first edition of Meganoticias Prime, the main evening newscast on Mega:
  6. Your link is redirecting me to the Nostalgia subreddit.
  7. 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.
  8. I hope that's not the final logo too. Even by C Clarity-era Tegna logo standards, that's just lazy.
  9. To add on to this, I think WSB itself had the bones of a good, flat-ish package from 1998 to 2006.
  10. While NewsChopper 2 now looks as if it's in motion - as opposed to the last open where it seemed like it was a still photo animated across the screen - that NewsChopper 2 shot still looks awkward and out of place compared to what's going on behind it. I'm also not a fan of that weird jerk the motion camera does near the end. Makes the whole thing seem a bit sloppy.
  11. Well, MCTYW had a good run at WNEP. Hope they're ready to C Clarity.
  12. On March 3, Chile's Canal 13 relaunched their Teletrece (T13) bulletins in celebration of the channel's 60th anniversary. I really like the music; better than the previous package in my opinion. Some of the graphics are a bit small and hard to see, though.
  13. No, the entire clip is part of the newscast. The first few seconds is the intro to a short "NHK News" bulletin, not a network ID. I don't even think Japanese TV stations do hourly IDs, they only ID themselves at startup and closedown.
  14. Nothing. Lists are still banned per the site's Guidelines:
