  1. I would have credited the start of the trend to Google from the early 2010s when Android tablets and phones (subsequently) started to see a flat-design GUI update in then-recent versions of Android, but a quick glance in the comments says that's much thanks to Microsoft when they brought out the Zune in 2006. Either way, a good insight
  2. Coming soon to a TV near Albany...
  3. Though it means I'll have to wait an additional year for NBC to have the Super Bowl (best network that does it IMO), the 2021 combo of this and the big dance is always a W. Just hope LV isn't another doozy. Kind of a bummer CBS has fallen on bad luck with less than memorable games their last 2 Super Bowls.
  4. Yes...you read that right: two networks traded their rights to air their next broadcasts at the big game itself. Not sure where this story fits considering we're between seasons and the fact that this concerns the two Super Bowls after Fox does LIV next year, but here it is: https://awfulannouncing.com/nbc/super-bowl-trade-nbc-winter-olympics-cbs.html
  5. WJZ too...it's bug has been 4:3-safe since the big "refresh" last summer Tuned in today and well...my original post did not age well. I didn't know the bug moved. Last I saw it, they had it 4:3-safe for the post-Grammy newscast some weeks back.
  6. Boston isn't the only one in the AL East with major changes to the radio booth. Joe Angel confirmed his retirement today. His now-former partner Jim Hunter would be next in line, but since he's also backup PBP to Gary Thorne at MASN, that's a wide open spot to fill between now and Opening Day.
  7. By the looks of this image I found on a Google Image search, that would be a yes. I admittingly didn't know E-league coverage was its initial purpose for the studio. I guess that's why they had an audience for the last year's Selection Show
  8. Looks like TNT had their NBA pregame show (All-Star draft show for last night) inside the studio for their March Madness coverage. Didn't have to wait a whole year to see this place again, right?
  9. I just saw this service advertised on a WBFF newscast this past weekend. Before seeing this post, I wasn't sure how this would fair, but we shall see. Maybe at least 2 channels besides the locals will sound appealing if I had to predict.
  10. Is it too soon, let alone allowed, to discuss potential Wild Card scheduling? I have a feeling NBC will take up the Cowboys-Seahawks game for sure, leaving Fox with the other NFC game and then ESPN/ABC and CBS split AFC Wild Card matchups.
  11. I've read about it now that it's looped around enough, but what truly will be interesting is how Fox responds to this. Don't want to go too much in depth, but this slightly reminds me of another situation with similarities nearly a decade ago.
  12. It really sucks because this is a definite result of how the league has changed as far as favoring offensive play, especially that at QB far more than any other position. At the very least, NBC still does it the right way (and the best way) with their lineup presentations. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- On another note, any clue as to why Nantz & Romo did not call a game for CBS this week? I checked in with a sports media news site this week and the top-dog crew was not listed.
  13. Currently watching Ravens-Steelers and I've noticed their lineup graphics on CBS are now constricted to a scoreboard attachment with names only (much like Fox). Not sure if it's been like this since the start of the season, but this is a far cry from in the past where lineups had its own fully fledged graphics.
  14. and the third threatening situation at a Fox station in 2-3 years if you include the incident at WBFF a few years back (if my research holds up right).
  15. Surprised no one shared it, but the network's logo for Tokyo 2020 was revealed earlier this week. [MEDIA=instagram]BowO5xwAn3j[/MEDIA]
