Best on-air presentation

Perhaps an unpopular opinion but Ten’s 1989 X logo and idents remain for me the best for the network and better than any of Seven’s.

Nine’s refreshed 2005 look is still one of my favourites.
Everything about that presentation just looks so good, and most of it would still look great today!

Nine’s 2002-06 “7 colours for 7 days” is the best on air presentation.

I also liked 7’s “The One to Watch” between 1999 and 2003 and the 5 colour bar.

I liked the 7-colour day era that Nine implemented during September 1, 2002 to late January 2006 because this shows which colours they use during the day. This was the best on-air presentation that I have seen in my whole life.
Sunday - Red
Monday - Royal Blue
Tuesday - Violet
Wednesday - Orange
Thursday - Aqua Blue
Friday - Green
Saturday - Yellow.
They have two different on-air presentations during the 7-colour era. In late August 2004, following the Athens 2004 Olympics, Nine decided to change their on-air presentation to a Helvetica font. Nine lineups, sponsor billboards, and PRGs have changed.
Both of these two on-air presentations looked the best, although I still liked the Sep 2002- Aug 2004 era as the revealing of the lineup was slower than the 2004-2006. I still liked the Still the One jingle in 2003 because this song makes me wanna dance.

Nine’s 2001-2002 pres is up there for me. At the time it was a huge change from the 3D golden look Nine had used for years. The music was incredible.

Nine’s 2002-05 and Seven’s various presentations during the “The One To Watch” era 1999-03 were my favourites.

Ten in 2000 was good too.

In my opinion, this is my favourite station ID of all time. From NRTV used from late 1991 to early 1994. Very ahead of its time in terms of graphics. I doubt that an original copy of this ID exists anymore. https://youtu.be/PtRZiFWjDZs

Favourite 7-coloured day on-air presentation from Nine?

  • September 1 2002- August 28 2004 Look
  • August 29 2004 - late January 2006 look
  • Both!

Didn’t mind 7’s 2004 grunge look but that came at a bad time for the network losing the ratings year despite a strong Q4 and the Olympics.

The original set of TV Man/Gottaloveit idents on Seven are amongst my favourites (the second one in particular)

Always loved the Capital version of the entertainment network promo too

Loved this look before the switch to the ribbon. Wish they’d kept the circle 7.

Great jingle from 0-28 from 1984 - even though no broadcast in Brisbane it was part of their test programming.

I liked this presentation from Ten.

We got 10 years out of the split 7 logo. But it should’ve been around longer.

You’re not alone. I also liked that (brief) era very much, as I did with Ten the previous year.

It was an excellent integration of the Ten ID and Capital logo
