Just wondered if anyone at UTV has bothered to reply to your query??
Maybe an email to our Julian might be whats needed to prompt some action??
Hi, I did get a reply, but it was the usual civil service speak. They told me the channel is happy with the ident package they currently have, and since these idents were only introduced in October 2016, they decided to hand pick a selected few and use them on UTV.
They may be happy with the ident package, and fair enough they have only been on air in NI for around 2.5 years so still got a bit more life in them before they become stale, and yes to an extent I'm happy with them....but why for the love of God do they have to play them out in the same order loop day in day out...that's the main annoyance for me. Why not just play them in a random order?....surely that's not too much hard work for leeds/London playout, few clicks of the mouse. 20 seconds...job done.
Let's face it, the chances of a press department criticising their own output is zero, regardless of what they think internally -- especially when there is no actual fault on display.
ITV's handling of UTV is professional, even if it might be boring.
