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.

Same case with IMSA and Supercross, using yet another font

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 from the system, with THAT being the alternative.

The RSNs debuted a new theme for basketball:

 

I heard the open of the broadcasts, and it honestly sounds like a 21st century knockoff of 'Roundball Rock.' That doesn't mean I dislike it, but it's definitely got that vibe.

Yeah it def sounds like a hybrid of Roundball Rock and the NBA TNT theme. It's catchy.

NBC Sports Chicago also opened the pregame show with the now-old theme over a view of the arena, leading into the upbeat normal pregame open and theme, then began the game broadcast with the new theme. It was more than a little messy.

NBC Sports Philadelphia did the same but had it all cleaned up by the halftime show.

I may be a little late with this but NBCSN updated some of their graphics for Premier League. Saw some updates this past weekend including the Sports ticker.

The new ticker has shown up during NHL and NASCAR coverage. Its a variation of the new SNF ticker.

Yeah, It's the NBC Sports ticker. They adapt it to focus on whatever sport is being presented live, but then during regular studio shows, it runs through all sports.

Yes, that is correct.  NBCSN is doing a good job with these new graphics. 

However, what's very bad is NBC Sports Philadelphia is completely bascura with their ticker.. SMH.

That was covered earlier. The RSNs as a whole abandoned using a ticker. Don't know why but they did.

I wished they just used Roundball Rock instead...

Probably a no go now that FOX holds the license for it. Bad move by NBC letting it lapse. 

 

I do hope that RSNs pick up William Goldstein's NHL theme though if the plan is to fully move away from Peter Calandra's CSN music collection.

What they're calling player & puck tracking technology, some new graphics made a cameo during NBC's coverage of the NHL All-Star Game. I took these screenshots from the NBC Sports App.

And also...single-sponsor ads overlaying the entirety of the boards; the latter is very unwelcome as they cover up board lines.  😒

I wonder whether this makes Fox's glowing puck from the mid-1990s primitive or ahead of its time.
