Sporadic thoughts on this latest set of changes.
- 9 Live: woeful name. Doesn't say anything as to what the program is: if it's simply a 4pm news bulletin why deviate from the 9 News brand?
I get that 9 News Now has a somewhat different format, hence the different branding. That I can live with, but I'm not sure why you'd ditch the "news" from the bulletin title?
(I'm sure this is pure pedantry, but nonetheless)
That bug is too clunky for my liking: why the illogical layout?
9 (At 4PM)

- GTV's new set looks gorgeous. It's been a while since I've been in that space, but it definitely would be physically bigger than the old set. Don't mind the modified plasma - it's better than horribly using a videowall. Those OTS graphics are woeful on the new screen - camera angles need a look at as mentioned.
