Oh dear Fox. Gone from a nice understated package to this.

The pluses: the score bar and the new transparent down and distance marker.

The minus: Everything is giant. And in italics.

The bizzare: the cartoony portraits of players.

Those negatives I can deal with, but you’ve left out by far the worst part - the incredibly loud (and very quickly annoying) sound effect into and out of each replay.

BBC seem to just cut away from Fox feed mid commentary there

When they did that last year it was to cover a sponsorship message, but I wouldn’t have expected one at that point. Perhaps their talkback feed made them think there was going to be one?

Possibly a verbal promo for one of Fox's own shows (such as The Masked Singer) or the full Trump interview on Hannity?

I know we call them lower thirds, but the TD graphic really did cover up virtually the entire lower third of the screen.

To confirm my earlier suspicion - the BBC just muted the Fox commentary, and cut to a clean feed (presumably the world feed) to cover a Verizon promo in the Fox feed about ‘5G’ being used to deliver a camera as part of the coverage. (Showed a camera with a big Verizon sticker on it.) Very quick work by the production team, carrying on from where they left off last year.

Sky left it in.

When the BBC do cut to the clean feed it looks so much sharper than the Fox feed Confused

Be interesting to know if the BBC is taking the native 1080p PCR output feed or the upconverted UHD feed or the standard Fox 720p Feed.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
