  1. I don't know when this happened, but Fox's NHRA coverage actually got new graphics. They had still been using the 2017 graphics for a while (though, to be fair, they had lagged in adopting them, and some of the inserts/3D graphics still had leftover elements of the 2014 graphics in them) and I was personally expecting that they'd get a variant of the NASCAR graphics. But these actually look a little different.

    Yeah, MLB clearly had well-founded contingency plans for this scenario, and it’s impressive that they were able to put something that polished on the air in such a short time. Honestly, even if the Padres find a permanent OTA/cable partner, I could see MLB continuing to produce the games.

    Indeed they did.

  3. The Belmont Stakes has its own bespoke graphics package, which is surprising because I thought they'd be dragging out the old black rectangles for it.


    And shockingly it's not huge and in your face. It's very green and gold with shades of the World Cup, and the old US Open theme music strikes again.

    Actually, there might be some hope on that: During telecasts of the NFL Playoffs, the bug on the top right corner was refreshed. And it looks like the new peacock design, but with a white border added; so there may be some applications where the border will stay intact.





    Kentucky Derby and USFL have been using the new logo as a bug. Sticks out like a sore thumb on the default graphics too

  5. CTV News Channel got new graphics. They're ... OK.


    Their last update was a harbinger for a new local news package, and that ticker is very ESPN TSN BottomLine (right down to the size of the banner ad slot)



    CCHA college hockey bringing us a very close recreation of Sportsnet's 2014-2021 (though besides the fonts/colors, the main difference is that SN put the scores adjacent to each other instead of like this)

  7. ESPN appears to have iterated from the XFL 2020 graphics. Still a similar design based off the MNF graphics, but the scoreboard is much flatter and brighter (in fact it was blinding until they put the ticker up)

  8. Taking this with a grain of salt because this image looks off... Why would the down indicator be that small, unless this was captured mid-animation? Where's the timeouts? 


    It looks like something you'd see on a kitschy preseason broadcast. In fact, the Steelers pretty much did this exact design earlier not too badly.

  9. Nickelodeon has updated the graphics they use for their simulcast games to be closer to the current CBS package (if they weren't pretty much an early teaser of them); also definitely ripped a page from Fox with the "cartoon" player portraits

    Here's Telemundo's graphics. 

    Edit: And the intro. Theme song is still the same. https://youtu.be/9c3fDvX6Tqk

    A post on that other site mentioned that the inserts from these graphics will be the standard Telemundo Deportes graphics going forward. Given it is a branch of NBC Sports, I can definitely see how this could replace the 2015 graphics on the English side (the 2018 inserts were pretty much the NBC Sports default but with the shapes from that year's World Cup branding).

  11. The world feed one is basically that but with the clock to the left and without the jersey colors. It's ugly.



    Also why are we still doing that tab,? You could have squeezed in Group A under the bug (or just shortened the tab to just say just "Group A"); it's redundant to the bug.

  12. With Canada being in the tournament for the first time since 1986, TSN has an on-location presence for the first time; usually they've done the studio segments from their main studio in Toronto (which debuted its current design during the 2015 Women's World Cup).


    Judging by their preview show, TSN's graphics seem to be an evolution of what they used for 2018, but more gold, black, and navy blue (for 2018 it was more white, red, and gold).

  13. After using what appeared to be a hastily thrown together reskin of the old Sportsnet graphics last year, TVA Sports has new graphics for its French NHL broadcasts.


    Looks a lot like that one NBC used in the 2021 playoffs, but boxier. I'll give them credit for doing something a little different cause that doesn't look too bad.

  14. Global News has underwent a major rebrand, with new graphics for all of its newscasts (replacing one based on a now-discontinued imaging package used by the main network), and an updated website.


    There's a lot of white and red (with the local newscasts also adding in some blue accents). At times, especially with the serif fonts, it feels more like the Globe & Mail than Global, but it's definitely a well-needed update.

  15. While we're here, Sportsnet always times major rebrands/redesigns for the NHL season and MLB playoffs, and this year is no exception. Sportsnet Central got updated with a new set and flatter branding.




    It's definitely more in line with their current imaging (the previous set, introduced as part of the larger Sportsnet rebranding in 2011,  was not too bad but seemed a bit small in comparison to TSN's more newsroom-based SportsCentre studio, and I swear they had been practicing social distancing at that desk for the video wall before that was even a widely-known term) and the look of the new NHL studio (which has a similar aesthetic but more curved)
