Since no one else has mentioned them I though I would

On the UK TV Network they are currently running trailers for the new UK Food channel which will be launching on Monday the 5th of November

UK Food Screenshots

So what does everyone think of the presentation?

I saw two of em on UK Gold Saturday night (I taped it with me Ab Fab)! Trust a fat cow to be lounging on the bed, promoting a food channel! Mum's pleased she's getting a channel just for food programmes (she's still learning in the kitchen!).

We've got Telewest Active Digital btw, so if you know what package it's in, let me know!

Their ident's sooo predictable though; it'll be spinning fruit and revolving plates with UK Food appearing underneath! UK Style's sister channel methinks!

Btw, doesn't BBC Kids launch that day? No-one seems to be talking about that much either! Is it free-to-view?

I like the little swirl next to the UK Food logo. The presentation looks alright.

I reckon I could actually end up watching this. I like The Naked Chef and programmes like Food And Drink, and I also love Can't Cook Won't Cook.

I read that ITV Digital plan to scrap the Calton Food Network so it could free space for more popualr channels such as the Discovery Channel.

UKTV are also saying the new channel will have new programmes unique to UK Food so it wont just be all repeats.

Anybody figured out what the little swirl represents?

The little arrangement of squares/rectangles on UK Style obviously is meant to look like modern art (as well as representing the way the images on the rest of the screen are split up in the idents) and the circley thing on the UK Horizons logo is meant to be a bionic eye (again echoing the idents).

But what a '6'-shaped swirl got to do with food?

I presume that food-orientated content will now be removed from UK Style (?). That'll leave just shows relating to homes, gardens, fashion and travel I think.

Chocolate mouse with cream swirling in it.

Rasberry swirl Ice Cream.

Soup with a swirl of shaved oring rind

Stop me before a shake and sing like Ainsley

Pehaps it's because you'll have to live in Canada to be able to watch it.

What a name for a British television station- UK Food! Is almost as bad as BBC Choice; I mean, since when has the BBC had choice?? Should be renamed BBC Repeats
