Sky News presentation - New studio onwards

The trouble is Sky News is very much a channel on the decline compared to what it used to be....

[snip same old moans]
Will you give over making the same comments over and over about how the channel has gone down hill. We all get it, Sky News has changed, but no need to ram your opinions on a 'channel on the decline' every time something is announced.

Lets just comment on the current presentation rather than keep on harking back to the 'old days'.

Don't like the graphics for the French Election, no real need for
BREAKING NEWS | FRENCH ELECTION | TEXT

Having the first two items there means there is barely any room for information, should just be a FRENCH ELECTION graphic to leave more room for text.

You don't like much on the channel do you? Perhaps you should turn over.

Sky News presentation - New studio onwards

Anyone else seeing a random flicker on the graphics now and again, where a small section of it will distort? Here's a crude video I took of the effect.
Anyone else see a small but eye-catching occasional graphic break up? I've recorded a crude video clip to illustrate what I'm seeing.

Graphics shimmer


Can't get the video to play, but yes.

Got Sky Q with three boxes on three TV's and they all have occasional glitches on the ticker, especially (all on the HD version).

Only had it for the last week or two.


Yea sorry not sure how to embed it properly.

The Sport Thread

I should have pointed out the 'screen grabs' were just pics taken of my TV on my smart phone, so it would be difficult to demonstrate the quality of the pictures broadcast.

The fixed camera picture quality was superb, and you can tell the onboard shots and even the helicopter shots were upscaled. I read somewhere this will be addressed next year.

So very likely that Press Preview will come from the Glass Box Mon-Fri then?


Yes. As pointed out earlier in the thread, it's not a case of walking to the other studio and sitting down when the ad break comes on. It's a fair walk and it takes time to set things up. So the whole 3 hours will be broadcast from the 'glass box'.

Looks like we have seen the last of the shoebox. According to Stephan Dixon, it will be in the skip along with the whole of the current weekend studio by next Christmas

Does this mean we have to wait until Christmas to see the new studio or is it because we mainly see the shoebox on Christmas Day these days?


I think you need to look up the word 'by'.

I'm baffled how people would stop watching something on the basis of a studio. Each to their own I guess, but I would have thought that content is king and (personalities and egos aside) you can't actually fault the journalistic quality of the channel at all.


My thoughts exactly. Plus the glass box isn't going to be the main studio anyway soon If I've understood correctly?
