The novelty war off back in January for me.


I know what you mean. For years I’ve adored TV presentation, and you’d think that having a new ident weekly would be a dream, but they generally don’t interest me. Whether this is because they’re a created piece that doesn’t create a good ident, lacks a memorable musical accompaniment or for another reason, I can’t quite work it out.

Well the music is just a variation of the excellent 2013 package and generally fits with the package, but maybe as a piece of "art" more consideration should have been made to the audio too - though they all have to be fairly "news safe" I guess.

Maybe now it's a case that apart from relaunches new idents are generally a bit of a surprise when they debut, so knowing you're getting one every Monday morning takes the fun out of it a bit.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I think the music that accompanies the idents and other bits of presentation is fantastic, especially the piece that goes with the daytime lineup menu.

ITV has always been pretty good for music to be fair. I was a big fan of the music that accompanied the emotions look, but then I think I was in a very small minority that liked that era anyway.
I love lamp

I'm getting shivers down my spine.
My tweet was read out on BBC Four's Eurovision coverage and Rylan Clark-Neal replied to it. That's all.

Other than making me feel itchy it’s so boring and a frustratingly unimaginative use of the material... we could’ve had something a lot more interesting if it was thought out more like having the logo appear through a flat puddle of the material - not someone swirling about the material with a magnet underneath a cutout of the logo?

I feel like I’m going overboard so forgive me but I think it’s a shame. Fairly good concept, poor execution.

In no was it this presentation related but ITV have announced they are closing ITV Choice in the Middle East on the 20th August.

Very surprising move considering its got a pretty good line up if UK shows and has sat well next to BBC First

Appears to be just two countries affected, it doesn't appear to be closing down outright. Also, this wasn't an ITV announcement. The article cites emails from two different providers. They say they don't know if the providers dropped it or ITV pulled out of those countries. I'd suspect it's the former.
