Sky News presentation - New studio onwards

So, we're now rapidly approaching mid-July and I have yet to see any updates on the new Sky News newsroom and overnight studio. Any updates from insiders? I understand the Brexit/Election shambles pushed things back a little, but I'm surprised we haven't heard any news recently.


November was the last date mentioned here, so I'd suggest being a little patient. I'm sure things will get mentioned when the new studio is imminent.

Shows that people forget or get lost in time

Does anyone remember a show from the early 90s on Channel 4. I believe it was on a Saturday night, and broadcast live from a roving presenter with a single camera film crew.?

They just used to walk around talking to people, but can't remember if there was an aim or goal of the programme.

I thought it was called As it Happens or something similar but can't find any reference on line.

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.
