The old thread was archived.

Logo has been unveiled for the new service.

So basically they've stuck green on it and added the word Ireland. I hope no one got paid to come up with that.

Such a shame that they haven't used this opportunity for a complete rebrand. Don't get me wrong, the logo has served them well, but a refresh would be nice (especially for us TVF-ers).

I wonder if they're going to use a cartoon leprechaun for the continuity.

Here are their new mastheads from the website displaying the new logo from an area of Ireland.

It will be nice if they could use these ones in their new VT intros for the channel when it launches next year.

Looks OK on the sign in the first pic but doesn't look great on the mastheads IMO.

I thought the sign looked terrible but those masterheads looked alright but the branding doesn't compliment the programming.

Looks a little messy breaking up the UTV logo like that. They may as well have just put 'Ireland' next to or below the standard UTV logo and be done with it. It makes me wonder if UTV are planning a rebrand with the logo modified like that.

I suspect in the near future we'll see UTV Radio, UTV Media, UTV Connect, U105 all adopting similar logos..

I just assumed it would simply be branded UTV, though I guess both versions might be available in NI so there probably is a need to distinguish them.

Clare.

Logo is muck, but not really a surprise considering the stock it comes from.
