  1. Pretty sure this is why MLB Network created Strike Zone. It's basically where MLBN dumps MLB Tonight (though usually without the usual personalities and more subdued) on Tuesdays and Fridays when they're simulcasting games, so they have some sort of whiparound coverage somewhere. I wonder if they'd start doing it on Sunday afternoons as well...even though MLBN already usually carries at least one Sunday afternoon simulcast.
  2. Doesn’t appear even after the deal that the RSNs reach the same coverage area as before. FSNs seem almost entirely unavailable in the state of Kentucky. Checked several KY zip codes (Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green and Paducah etc. DMAs) and no FSNs appear to be available. Check a Cincinnati zip code (appears to work anywhere inside the Cincinnati DMA) and lo and behold FSOhio pops back up.
  3. According to Matt Sarzyniak's College Sports Website, Marquee will be (along with FOX Sports Ohio) simulcasting the Dayton/George Mason basketball game tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 25) from Stadium. Noticing that Sinclair has started doing this more and more with the FSNs and, imo, should try to do it whenever possible on the FSNs.
  4. Yep, new graphics in place at the mothership on WCPO, which has now rebranded their newscasts from "9 On Your Side" to just "WCPO 9 News"
  5. It feels like a quick turnaround on this package vs. the last two. And if it is a while new network-wide package, I wonder what the plans are for other FOX Sports properties...Daytona 500 is only a 2.5 weeks away, then MLB starts in late March. Plus it's a whole thing as to whether or not the FSNs get re-branded by then and whether Sinclair will debut a new package for all of their sports properties or keep Stadium and the FSNs separate and continue to use the old FOX graphics (a la 2011 Root Sports).
  6. The station ID at the top definitely gave me vibes of what they did with the opens for the late Al Jazeera America, but I like the look overall. Still clean and has that Al Jazeera feel but is modern enough that it doesn't feel dated.
  7. Here's a quick video slapped together of the new open, talent rejoin and weather graphics.
  8. I'm getting a quick something together
  9. The South accounts (@PredsOnFSTN, @CanesOnFSCR, @HornetsOnFSSE, @HawksOnFSSE, @GrizzliesOnFSSE, @FOXSportsBraves) have been like that for a couple of seasons, I think. My guess is FOX Sports South et al thought it would be easier to give each one a separate Twitter account what with various channel assignments and viewing area restrictions, etc. Regarding the Ohio Twitter accounts, It does indeed appear STO has been morphed into FOX Sports Cleveland... the @FOXSportsOH account remains, but mostly retweets Columbus and Cleveland content...my guess is that this is because there's no use in creating a "FOX Sports Cincinnati" account for just the Reds. Actually works well since Cleveland has Indians and Cavs content plus Browns shoulder programming and Columbus has Blue Jackets and Crew SC content plus Ohio State shoulder programming (only time I've seen a college team get their own custom FSN logo bug). The Cincinnati feed has the Reds...and some UC shoulder programming? Not enough to create a separate identity.
  10. The FSNs do this to a point already. Reds games get cleared on one of the FSSouth/Southeast/Tennessee/Carolinas feeds in at least Nashville and Charlotte already. FSIndiana clears some Pacers games to at least Louisville, Lexington and Bowling Green, KY through FSSouth, same thing with FSSoutheast and the Grizzlies.
  11. So starting in 2010 or so, The Weather Channel started displaying their national "lower display line" under all programming instead of leaving the job up to local STARs. Notice after the cut-over, the national weather remains on the bottom and the local weather doesn't yet appear. Those STARs are taken offline for the update. I think mine (on the SD side, at the time when still having a separate SD and HD feed was widespread) took about an hour to update. Maybe the new models in use today that push out SD and HD simultaneously are quicker. Another thing I've noticed, any normal commercial gets a squeezeback so the constant LDL doesn't cover up anything important, but they don't do this for their own promos, so the bottom is always cut off. The closest comparison I can make is to an ESPN/FS1 situation.
  12. I like the idea of the graphics overhaul. I like switching from a dull light blue to a dark blue/gray...but the typeface needs work. Akko suited them much better. Pairing the old graphical elements with what looks like Roboto Condensed is, uh, bad.
  13. The coverage is originating from WKRC but, I'm not sure if they're producing it or if the team is.
  14. Please continue to hold your shock as you find out that the Bengals spared every expense and are trotting out the same look as usual. This is a broadcast that doesn't even have down lines on the screen.
  15. They are essentially the old package just made flatter, with a different font, and adding a dash... ...and lemme tell you, I am here for it.
