Welcome to the world of Murdoch, where terrible conduct which would usually be career-ending instead is deflected and treated as "liberal outrage" or "PC gone mad".
I guess therel has to be mux kit for each region producing PSB 3, so it's just a case of getting a feed of BBC 1 HD with upscaled local news inserted to that kit.
Would that require the regional studios to have a sustaining HD feed or could the regional opt switch (or mixer GPIs like the old system for digital) trigger a router at the coding and mux centre to switch the BBC one HD input to upscaled (regional) BBC One SD?
Or is the main issue BBC politics and that it couldn't be done on satellite yet?
There's nothing difficult technically, just buy more codecs, upgrade distribution and contribution to and from the English regions to HD circuits, buy some upscallers for the ERs that are still SD, and provide all the associated monitoring and 'glue' at the CCM centres. It's just a case of money, THAT's the primary problem !
Yes - and it is very difficult to justify spending money to upgrade BBC One HD to broadcast SD upscaled content (only Plymouth, Salford and London originate in HD)...
Viewers shouldn't have to change the channel in order to see regional programming. It should be just available on the HD channel, even if it isn't in HD.
Does anyone have a vid of the BBC News at Ten?
Also, I've seen it captioned on astons 'eye witness'. Are eye and witness kept separate in the UK? In the US and Australia I've always seen it spelt 'eyewitness'.

Like how they instantly deflect the blame on to their correspondent.
Gutless. This is a great lesson as to why you should never report anything in a situation like this unless it has been verified by a direct source.
Yup. Hate it. They've kept using the same style over and over and over since the launch, refreshing the look with pointless little tweaks here and there.
Personally I just think the graphics have always sat awkwardly on screen, and they still do.
Then why bother in the first place? It looks like you've spilled custard all over the screen and not cleaned it.
Because he took pride in doing it anyways? Just because it isn't an exact replica of the original, does not mean it's not a good effort. I swear this forum has ridiculously high standards for mocks. Saying someone's effort was akin to "spilling custard on the screen"... grow up dude.
I'm guessing you were going for a 2D look with that Alex? It could use some work, but the basic premise is there 3/5
Given that delivery - yes. It's hardly hard-hitting. Jesus.
I don't think it's a regional delivery so much as she's got a strong accent from wherever she's from in the UK, and it doesn't sound normal to not have BBC English on BBC World.
The day is on the left and time of day is on the right. The BBC One and BBC Sport logos are on the left but BBC Radio Scotland's is on the right. It would make more sense to have date and time located together and the BBC logos located together on the opposite side, with BBC One and BBC Radio Scotland's logos being the same size. That way all the information is tidily grouped and it doesn't take as long to read.
I also prefer the time etc bigger. They were far too small before
Remind me again what appears in the studio behind Anna Botting...?
That is my point. If the product is superior to the rival's, then why nick their branding? It's laughable. I'd be just as aghast if the BBC were moving from ten o'clock and Sky suddenly went all beepy with globes everywhere.
I know Sky News branding has been heading in something of questionable direction lately, but this...
I think that - anywhere else but here - any sense of righteous indignation would be confined to those who wouldn't choose to watch the programme anyway, so it MUST stand on its own two feet editorially, and if I have anything to do with it - and I do - it will.
This is a presentation forum, so - shock horror - prepare to have your product judged on presentation...
Sky News at Ten looks like ITV. No two ways about it.
The voice of God has been a thing in Australia going back decades. Hardly an Americanism. In fact lots of your observations are historically quite 'normal' for Australian TV; perhaps their origins are from American TV, but to me American TV takes these things to an extreme whilst Australian bulletins tend to remain dialled back a bit.
The only thing I can agree is the transition swooshes are quite American, although Sky News UK have also used them.
We don't take cues from either Britain or the US imo, we have a distinctly different style. Taking a look at Nine News, I can't say it's really borrowed much from any overseas market, but it looks modern and pretty 'current' to me.
Yea but, isn't the red caption of death only there until 18:35, the other 20-25 mins is a barrage of trailers ?
Nope, its 30 minutes of red screen.
I don't watch TLC but some people do, so obviously they would value the channel.
I think this is a wake up call to Sky to be honest. They might have the Premier League but not everyone wants Sky Sports; there are plenty out there who subscribe for entertainment and trimming back on content for those viewers whilst also raising prices is bad optics. Discovery may very well have hit a nerve here.
Cool Hand Luke theme?
Looks likely. WIN hasn't changed a thing about their bulletin since their affiliation change to Network Ten so at this stage it looks likely WIN will be playing a strategy of confusing viewers and hoping a number of viewers looking for the SCA-Nine service will accidentally tune into the WIN service.
For anyone unfamiliar with WIN, they're unbelievably petty. For a decade they inflicted viewers with solid watermarks on sports telecasts to cover up the Nine watermark. In 2007, when Nine and WIN were going through a spat, WIN placed a bar across the L3s of the Today Show to prevent regional viewers from seeing astons.
