Real-world regulations and agreements ensuring the independence of Sky News aside, I thought it might be interesting to see how an MSNBC-based set of presentation graphics for the channel might look like under Comcast ownership. The peacock/Sky News box combination is based on a design seen on this forum - credits to the user concerned; but I can't seem to find it in the Sky News post.

Titles
- Based on existing current cover art for the All Out Politics podcast (the swirling ring-style elements already present in current MSNBC opens: [url[img][/img]]https://www.newscaststudio.com/2017/05/08/msnbc-new-graphics/[/url])
- Instead of the TV/web/app symbolism in the current TOTH, programmes open with the generic titles swirling in/out and directly transition into presenter headshot
- All hours will include an intertitle after the TOTH headlines
*

Intertitles for bulletin / bulletin-type programmes of all dayparts
- Colour-coded from dawn (Sunrise) to late night (World News for UK overnight)
- Ian King and All Out Politics being the only exceptions of in-sequence colour-coding
- Flagships like News at 10 and other specialty programmes will retain unique titles
- Back to "Afternoon Live" instead of "Kay Burley Show"

Pretty faithful recreation of the MSNBC graphics - good job. I'm not so keen on the graphics themselves - they're a bit 'big' and 'loud' for my liking - but that's on them, not you. However, I do really like your title screens - they are much better than the ones currently used on air, and I think those designs have some real potential. I wonder whether some sort of globe design might look good incorporated into them, though? Anyway, good work - in fact, if you have the time/inclination, I wouldn't mind seeing this developed further.
