Shows how much I watch the sportscast.

It's not that but rather there aren't many that occur when I'm up or around a TV. In the evening in the US all the sportscasts are preempted (the ones after ABR) and the rest are during the day. There are five sporcasts during the week in North America versus 9 in Europe.

Fair enough.

I wonder, with the talk of an Outside Source style touchscreen, if the Sports bulletins will become similar to what Sky Sports News HQ do on Sky News?

That looks so much better.

Now, when's Breakfast moving in too? Wink

Some caps so far:

Headline wipe is really nice on screen, quite fast to catch though.

Hands up who also spotted the old Sportsday branding in the background on the right of that wide shot? Razz

I noticed it at 6:30 on BBC NC. Much better, and cleaner, with no more confusing red elements representing the news brand.

It's certainly come along way since it's first use on screen.

What exactly took so long for the changes? It looks like they moved the LCDs together and added a couch. The glasss etchings look the same.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

I disagree. I think it looks quite different in terms of functionality. The only permanent BBC Sport branding is in the light box above the desk. Everything else can now be changed by lighting and on screen graphics. The dais is also different as it has more colours.

I do wish they would move BBC Breakfast into there, although there would be an issue about the absence of a 'performance area'.

Yes that's all we did 😳

Never mind the added functionality of a touchscreen (when it works 😂) a total new work flow for the catwalk screens, the creation of 3 presentation positions and the massive relight......
(Pity the artwork for the 4 light boxes and to cover the old newsroom artwork failed to turn up though!!!!)
