At the risk of bringing this back on topic...
Interesting Bloomberg interview last week with Brian Roberts, in which he is pressed for examples of Comcast and Sky working together. He says Sky News “can draw on NBC News content for the US midterms”
Clearly they did not, and in fact I’ve seen two ABC people pop up on the channel covering the wildfires this last week.
Presumably more a case of using existing partnerships than some sort of mini show of editorial independence.
Either that or they haven’t got the memo
However it did appear that they used NBC roof top space.
Really disappointing such issues are still commonplace.
Hopefully the Comcast takeover will result in Sky News production values being restored to their world class that they were before this automation started.
All of the NBC/Telemundo stations use the same software Sky News uses, Ross OverDrive, I don’t think a show has been lost due to that. Sure it’s all on a local level but they don’t have the kind of support a news channel has. Didn’t they also move to IP production? It could be that the software is not playing nice with that as well.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
