ESPN unveiled a new graphics package today

I noticed that SportsCenter had a new format for their "rundown" on the left side of the screen and I also noticed a new ticker format for ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN News and ESPNU.

 

At the time I checked ESPN Classic, they did not have a ticker (but they did have a 16x9 SD letterbox screen.) Maybe the "sd widescreen" format and lack of ticker was due to the event being shown.

 

 

 

I can hear the OPWs furiously signing up to say that the old ticker is on ComWarnerDirectDishCox and that AT&T charges extra for weird voodoo they put on special feeds of channels.

I don't get YES, so I'll take your word.

They also have an entirely new SportsCenter studio that seems to be void of any desks as far as I can tell.

I just wish they'd dump the ticker during live events. At least this one seems shorter. There seems to be less "dead space" between the channel logos and the bottom of the TV. Maybe that's some of it...now that people's TVs show more image (compared to how the edges of some 4x3 TVs would cut off the perimeter) a ticker re-design made sense.

The World Cup uses an international broadcast video feed which puts graphics at the very bottom of the screen. In order for these graphics to be clearly seen, the ticker is removed.

The ticker is also removed for Wimbledon, The Masters, and NBA.
