All five channels of Hong Kong's dominant TVB network received an on-air identity refresh last Saturday (19 Nov, its anniversary). Gone was the decade-old music and RGB ribbon element in the idents of Jade and Pearl, the Chinese- and English-language general service channels.

TVB Jade — 15-second ident + parental guidance slide:


TVB Pearl — 15-second ident + parental guidance slide:


J2 (youth-oriented multichannel)


J5* (a mix of daytime finance, documentary and other general entertainment, plus Chinese and other imports)


iNews channel


*J5 was rebranded from "HD Jade" earlier in February, moving away from simulcasting any Jade programming. HD Jade was launched when digital TV was rolled out on New Years Eve 2007. The simulcast format was no longer necessary as Jade digital had already moved to HD in 2013; non-primetime simulcast hours on the "HD Jade" multichannel had been gradually cut back, before the J5 format was launched anew. The first J5 ident, lasting only nine months, contained the triangle element also seen in the latest batch of TVB idents.


In other HK-related news, after the 59-year-old ATV network ran out its FTA licence (Post by whoiam989 here: http://tvforum.uk/forums/post1003644#post-1003644) in April, the new ViuTV channel (owned by telco juggernaut PCCW, as noted in that post) took ATV's place in the digital TV spectrum. ATV's alleged plans of going online were never materialised, given the fact that the company was essentially on the brink of going bust.

Here's the full ViuTV ident:


As reflected by their branding, ViuTV's programming is aimed at a younger market segment.

A rare 1969 clip of Austria's ORF, featuring a psychedelic ident for experimental color transmissions, an in-vision continuity announcement, and the Eurovision fanfare:

Here is the first upload of Sky1 continuity from the new German version. It uses the same idents as the UK and in this video it shows the Kung Fu ident, but with an alternative ending with the '1' character jumping back into the Sky1 logo. The UK version does not feature the Sky1 logo.

If you find "Oneness" a bit lacking, maybe this effort from Denmark's TV2 will be more inspiring. It's a marketing campaign around "all that we share". Not much to do with TV shows - just a beautiful piece of branding.

Subtitles are available - you may need to play around with the settings on YouTube if they don't come up.

Wonderful film. Puts across the message that I think BBC One were trying to put across with their Christmas promotional film in a much better way.
