The channel looks out of place now beside RTÃ ONE, not just because of the ONE / 2 branding, but they look like two totally separate companies, no real branding carrying across apart from the RTÃ logo. Unless another change is planned for RTÃ ONE sometime soon?
Still a lot more coherent than 1988-1995 and (especially) 1997-2003, when the RTÉ logo wasn't used on Network 2 (as it was) at all. During the 1997-2003 era even RTÉ programmes on Network 2 were branded "N2 Productions", Sport was "N2 Sport" and news was "News 2". Newsfeed is nearly exactly the same as 60 Seconds in format.
The biggest problem with this new look, apart from the cringe-awful CA
(which presumably is just for tonight) is the ident - way, way, way, too much going on.
