  1. And now the new MNF graphics are ... all over the place
  2. On a side note, NFLN's new Conference USA package is here, and the old silver Thursday Night Football graphics just won't die.
  3. ACC Network launched; I noticed from the clips that their studio insert graphics are different from the existing stock ESPN graphics, plus these motion graphics can be best described as "weirdly satisfying".
  4. TSN's simulcasting the Raiders/Packers preseason tilt in Winnipeg, taking the Raiders/NBC Bay Area network feed. I do believe this is the first time 2008 (which had Citytv added to the team's preseason network due to the game at Rogers Centre the SkyDome) that a local preseason broadcast has been picked up by one of our national sports networks.
  5. Predictably the CBS scoreboard tweaks from SB LIII have landed on its preseason game.
  6. Patriots got a new scoreboard that isn't too bad (kinda goes for the wider "SNF 2018" style) Packers also got a new scoreboard. Little underwhelming but slick Side note, Eagles moved to KYW this year.
  7. MLB games on YouTube are using a more sensible scoreboard than the previous Facebook games, this time being a slight re-arrangement of the current MLB Network design (with a hint of TBS's previous one).
  8. The Open is on, and Golf Channel shockingly didn't update its Open-specific graphics to match the new flatter package it started using this season. Though they also don't seem to be using their own coverage: I think they're using Sky commentators but with GC graphics. It just feels less bespoke than how they did it in the past. Rather low quality for a major.
  9. The College World Series is using the current MLB scoreboard now
  10. CTV and Cityty's coverage is routed through TSN and Sportsnet respectively. Everyone else is doing it through their news departments.
  11. And THEY DID IT! CBC, CityTV, and Global in Toronto are in breaking news mode (though CBC has since delegated the coverage to the mountain time edition of The National, which it's airing at midnight), and CBC was running a breaking news ticker on all other affiliates directing viewers to CBC News Network and their website.
  12. Congratulations St. Louis on your first Stanley Cup! But could we have another first-time champion in a major sports league in two days tonight? Game 6 has been upgraded to the main CTV network too Much like the old ESPN NFL theme, TSN has dug out the old NBA on CTV theme a couple of times for promos (and a retrospective in another game that was randomly simulcast by CTV), but I'm quite shocked they haven't made it their main music just for the occasion...
  13. Although Sportsnet on Game 1 had good viewership, all of the broadcasts on TSN appear to have had higher viewership numbers than Sportsnet so far, one-upping it as the most-watched NBA telecasts in Canadian history (Game 4 had 4.631 million viewers) Game 5's numbers will be a different story, but the ball is in TSN's court if the Raptors clinch on Game 6.
  14. NBC still cannot seem to make up its mind in the graphics department. The new inserts from the conference finals got replaced by a completely different set that doesn't match up with anything.
  15. Unsurprisingly, Sportsnet and TSN are splitting the finals, with Sportsnet going first. Plus, CTV2 will be simulcasting the ABC broadcasts of games 2, 4, and 6 (no word on whether Citytv will follow suit). CKVR rimshots Toronto so they'll be getting the simsub for sure.
