I also think a lot of issues with Sky News, the sets and rebranding were all done minimally or on the cheap because they knew they were going to be going up on the auction block soon. Perspective buyers owners don’t want to see a lot debt or expenses (which is why you see layoffs and corners cut) when buying a business. Additionally designers may not have wanted to go all out with a new design when there was a very real possibility that the new owners would bring in their own people to redo the design.
It’s not worth a citation because it’s my opinion.
Your opinion was presented as fact.
"The sets and branding were done minimally or on the cheap."
You have zero idea how much money, effort and resource goes in to it - and neither do I.
I very much doubt that they hired a minimum wage intern to design everything though, regardless of whether you think the quality is to that kind of standard.
Univision is an entirely different example to Sky, and you said yourself it was "rumoured."
