Agreed, that font is vile.
It's not as if it is their Christmas font, it's the font they have been using on screen for some time now. It looks awful, they never use any different weights or sizes of it and it never looks smooth on screen.
UTV presentation is horrible and (despite this rather decent effort) whoever is responsible should have been sacked a long time ago over it. It's laughable and completely devoid of any proper imagination, inspiration, talent or skill. It really does look like some kids run it using programs they got free on a CD with a computer magazine.
