I've just noticed Sky are using the old Sky Living logo on their main website https://www.sky.com/

It is - but I don't see the issue.

Your signature has a bit of sense though - but Sky2 will continue to exist with the fact that it squeezes the last bit of revenue from their archive.



I only pointed that out because Sky normally updates their logos within weeks/months of them changing. But then again, Sky are doing this elsewhere on their sites and also in the past on various channels.

As for my signature, I'm very aware that they will keep Sky 2 on air for quite a while as an archive channel (Mainly former/current Sky 1 shows). My only complaint really is that Sky 2 rebrands with new idents and breakbumpers as it has not had a major refresh since 2011. Seeing it is an archive channel, however, I doubt Sky will

It's had a new break bumper with the new logo - but the idents are unchanged mainly, with just a new logo. I doubt that Sky will bother to change it seeing the diminished state it is in.

I've just caught the start of an old Simpsons episode on Sky 1 where the American TV Ratings symbol was present in the corner. Is it my imagination or are these never usually burnt into a programme's title sequence?

No idea about the Simpsons but they're quite commonly seen on the start of American programmes, or at least they were when they were first introduced
They're almost always seen, the exceptions being on news, sport, and commercial advertising programming. MPAA ratings trump it on movies, but unclassified films also use the TV ratings.

I think I remember seeing them quite often on showings of South Park years ago on what is now Comedy Central.

Do Sky lose the rights to the series that C4 are airing at any time. C4 tend to have rights to five classic series plus one newer (but still a few years old) at any time.


Pretty sure they have overlapped on a few occasions, but Sky have different seasons of the show at different points in the schedule, as do Channel 4. It's no different really to the occasions when the same episode of Family Guy was on Fox at the same time or day as its then BBC Three airing, or even when Scrubs was being aired by half a dozen different networks.
