Four Australia

image
Ever since I posted my dream TV network lineup back in 2018 of Four TV, I now wanted to expand this idea further for a fifth FICTIONAL commercial TV network in Australia. Here is the list of the TV channels and a quick explanation. More details will come further! :slight_smile:


4
The flagship TV channel with news, entertainment, and sports.
4 Blaze (LCN41)
4 Blaze is energized and supercharged. Home of the freshest entertainment programming for the 16-39 demographic.
4 Breeze (LCN42)
4 Breeze is the home of lifestyle and reality programming.
4 News (LCN43)
4 News is a 24-hour news channel that focuses more on the news, and less on the opinions.
4 Local (LCN44)
4 Local brings you the best of your area, continuing the legacy of the best in community television. The station in local markets will be named as “4 Sydney”, “4 Melbourne”, and “4 Perth”
Lineups to come soon for the different multichannels, this is just a quick sneak peak.

The logo first (briefly) reminded me of Foxtel.

4 sounds like an interesting Network so far!

I like the choice of names for the multi-channels (Blaze and Breeze), reminds me of LifeStyle Home and 9Turbo for example) I feel they fit the vibe well, energetic for the first, and tranquil for the other.

The 4 Player name may give a giggle for some, but it’s straight to the point in terms of providing a viewing service for 4 content.

4 Local has a nice community vibe about it too. looking forward to seeing more of this project! :slight_smile:

Good to finally see an Australian Mock TV Network, the only one of which was VIC Television!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! Decided to make an overarching style for the 4 channels - same style for each channel.


4’s identity will generally show items in a group of four.

4 Blaze’s identity is adrenalin - skydiving, rollercoaster rides, an identity to fit the supercharged pace of the channel.

4 Breeze - people hanging out, in coffee shops, and other places showing a lifestyle.

4 News - satellite pictures of Australia and the globe.


4 Local - shots of the city, however it can be anything as it’s up to the local state to create their own concept for their channel.


Here’s a concept for 4 Player, which I’m considering changing it’s name to 4 Sight as it’s a good play on words, and a good name for a VoD service.

Feedback appreciated! :slight_smile:
(by the way, a quick thanks to @PaddyTePou, and his PTV mock for the inspiration for me to expand on 4!)

I like the ident style you’ve gone for which mimics the style of the expanded rotated ‘4’ in a segmented box, though I would suggest to adjust the kerning/spacing of the letters for the domains a little bit just so they aren’t too close together, as that would cause visibility issues on smaller screens.

Also, did you notice for sub-brands that start with the letter “P”, it looks kind of like a arrow? :open_mouth::leftwards_arrow_with_hook:

Four’s broadcast technology will be an Australian first - High definition for not only the main channel, but for all the Four multichannels too!

Yes, people with older MPEG2 equipment will need to upgrade to new equipment, but it will be worth it for the best viewing experience for the public.

Safe zones? Other than that they look great!

@MichaelPower Say, have you got any plans for Four Australia?

I’m getting schedules all written up, the main channel’s schedule is almost done, still working on the multichannel schedules - however as a little sneak peak, the flagship reality series on Four will be The Circle
