First off, let’s pump the brakes a bit about NBCSN closing - the article cited is making predictions for 2021, it’s not a guarantee. The reasons given for closing it down makes sense, but it’s an info

That's weird. NBCS Chicago has used theirs occasionally for breaking news and programming announcements, even after dumping it for scores and headlines. No reason why it should be completely scrubbed

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.

 

The other parts of the package? 

 

Imagine if Sky Sports was in America, and imported their graphics. 

 

Not that I'm complaining.

As am I. I wonder if this the sign we were looking for that NBC is indeed going with individualized looks for their various properties and keeping the '15 look as a generic base package. NHL season is right around the corner...

Wouldn't surprise me. It's the exact playbook that ESPN used for its graphics. I would like to see someone copy the ESPN CFB look but for the NFL., however.

And here's the new intro for NBC's coverage of the Premier League. It's the same intro as Sky Sports' Monday Night Football coverage. The theme music is still the same.

Okay, so we all noticed that mysterious new ticker they introduced on the NFL coverage this year. Looking closer, at it, I did notice one thing: the IndyCar races have been using a slightly different design for the leaderboard tally than NASCAR (for one, always using the vertical one. The NASCAR coverage seems to flip-flop), a darker green flag color, and bits and pieces of this one graphic (particularly the title/lap count. Everything else still uses the normal fonts) use a font that is not otherwise used anywhere else in NBC's current package but is on that new ticker.

I've noticed for the past couple weeks here in Philly, NBC Sports Philadelphia has been running ticker-free. Occasionally they'll roll out the ticker to plug the particular show's sponsor and the MyTeams app, but other than that, the network's been ticker free. I hope either the NBCSN style ticker or anything more current is coming down the pipe.

Now that you mention it, I've noticed the same in Chicago in recent days. They've been opting to show only relevant out-of-town scores on a little black bar attached to the bottom of the score bug.

RSNs have dropped the ticker. It's inserted with promo graphics locally a few times a show to satisfy preexisting sponsorship buys. Otherwise, it's toast.

 

That's weird. I wonder what the reasoning behind that was.

Rugby World Cup is here, which means that NBC got to raid the pantry for a Sky rugby reporter to join them in Connecticut. Their graphics scheme for the tournament is rather flat and funky, and doesn't really scream "rugby", in my opinion (and is then immediately contradicted by NBC's glossy defaults).

 

But how would I know this? TSN is also taking their feeds as a whole rather than doing their own studio show like they did last time. When most of your games are on in the overnight hours, I can see why this is likely cheaper (but also a bit disappointing given we're actually in this tournament).

NBC Sports Bay Area/California getting an almost near clone of NBC Sports Philadelphia's set:

Same thing I dislike about their previous set...the lack of depth behind the desk. All of the depth is off to the sides.
