Oh I'm sure they do, but it sounds and looks incredibly dated.
New backdrop was also being used towards the tail end of last season - it allows them to match the background in Studio 7 (the "normal" studio) and the pundits sat upstairs in front of the Hub in the SSN Newsroom.
Make what you will of this tweet:

I don’t agree it’s futuristic with an exciting theme tune, I see Premier League TV have changed their titles not sure what to make of it.
The Autumn Nations Cup 2020 has RTÉ in Ireland & Channel 4 in the UK for Ireland's 3 Group A games.
Channel 4 will offer highlights of the other Autumn Nations Cup games broadcast from Amazon Prime Video for UK viewers.
England vs Ireland will be broadcast live on both Amazon Prime & Channel 4 in the UK. RTÉ will also show that game live in Ireland.
I assume France vs Ireland 6 Nations match will be broadcast on the BBC this year? It's not in the link above but it's shown here below.
Apart from Amazon not being a linear broadcaster with recordable channels, it forces Engligh fans to have 3 separate subscriptions. I know it's a one-off tournament, and hopefully that's part of it. When the European Cups were split across Sky & BT, it was messy - and was much improved when BT were given the total package.
Having said all that, I do like the idea of the autumn series having one central TV deal rather than individual nations as they've been thus far. A FTA/pay-combination would be a good outcome, considering how things have been upto now.
The theme full of old, unrealistic synth brass sounds and is hardly memorable. The titles are a total 90s time-warp. It may have looked futuristic then, but it's retrofuturistic at best now.
