NBC commissioned their own font for their owned stations division. It doesn’t have a fancy name but is called “Arthouse Owned” internally. You can find the details here at NewscastStudio. It replaces FF DIN which was used on the Look N packages used by their NBC stations and Gotham used by their Telemundo stations.

Now my eye isn’t trained for fonts especially with small differences but here are two images provided to NewscastStudio by Arthouse. First is the old look using FF Din.

And here it is using ArtHouse Owned:

I honestly can’t see the difference there but the lower third looks much clearer.

All images come from NewscastStudio.

Perhaps this could lead to the other NBC properties that use Gotham (CNBC, MSNBC) to switch over to the Arthouse font. For the 2019-20 Premier League season, NBCSN recently switched to the Sky Sports PL package and font but still maintains their music and its own scoreboard.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Here are some more details, camera feeds are sent back as JPEG-2000, there’s subsecond latency and two diverse 10 Gb paths utilizing the Comcast backbone, which will converge into a Comcast mesh network arriving at KXAS and KXTX with 100Gb connection.
