Meh nothing spectacular, really not worth a 1:26 video, an image would have done, plus I'm not liking the way it's worded.

Oh, I was doing it the way, ITV would have done it. Are you saying that I should word it my own way? What wording would you recommend?

I fail to see why such a message would even appear, in lieu of the fact as happens now non-HD material is upscaled.

Unless this is supposed to be the ITV HD equivalent of BBC One HD's "we can't show regional programmes" holding slide, which is the only reason I can think of for such a slide.

Need to work on the wording. "on your region"?

Ok, Firstly, I had the imagination of: 'If ITV Couldn't broadcast regional news in HD' because ITV can't broadcast some regions in HD, so I thought, it should broadcast in the UK and wait for all regions to broadcast in HD, like the BBC. I got the inspiration for the message from the ITV+1 Slide (Actual Slide you see on ITV+1 in the late hours) and BBC One HD.

Okay now it makes sense.

It's more likely if truth be told this slide would say something similar to what BBC One HD says but in a more casual tone and direct to the point - something along the lines of "If you can see this it means we can't show you this programme. We don't want you to miss out, please switch to ITV".

This is my first time on TV Forum, but I can Improve - Basically I should just say "If you can see this it means we can't show you this programme. We don't want you to miss out, please switch to ITV".

This really didn't need to be a video.

Agree completely with Neil Jones on the wording. "...so to avoid ruining your enjoyment of the programme" just doesn't make sense - surely they aren't watching the programme in the first place if they're looking at your slide.

I could update it to make it better like this and take your views into account.

How about this one...
