ITV Hub looks vile on Sky+ boxes. Too bright and too garish. Just awful.
Heaven only knows why Sky allowed white to be an available colour for Catch-Up. Unless there isn't a palette of colours to choose from and they're free to pick anything. If that's the case, why pick that?
I doubt this was a decision made by Sky. Most of the Catch Up TV services offered on the Sky+HD STBs just use the default EPG
Only BBC, ITV, C4 & C5 have ever used anything different to make their interface look more like that available on their web-based service.
For those who aren't familiar with Sky's Catch Up service, the picture below shows the customised settings for the main broadcasters. Sky Arts shows the default colour palette used by the likes of Universal, FOX, Discovery, History etc . . .
It's a shame ITV have gone for the glaring white background. I do hope they change it.
Even just a dark grey background, with alternating light/dark grey on the listings pages would be better than what they have, and it would still relate to the 'white palette' used on their other outlets. I don't think they've really considered how it has to look alongside the Sky EPG.
