In Australia, we have our own Sky News. We also have access to Sky News from London (which I usually refer to as Sky News UK) through Sky News Active.

I really do not think the recent change to the graphics of Sky News UK was a good idea. They look really bulky, ugly and more like Fox News.

I didn't really see any need to change the graphics - I thought they were some of the best on TV.

Hello !

I'm ok with Morpium. The new graphic is simular at Fox News but the few graphics were better.

SkyNews is for me the only channel to be reactive for Breaking News.

Im guessing that the graphics are similar because both Fox News and Sky News are owned by the same parent company. News Corp.

Sky news seems to be lacking in glamour these days, a bit suprising that because they were once at the forefront in that regard. :(

Along with CNN, Sky News used to be my favorite news channel, sometimes I liked it even more than CNN. But recent changes ruined it for me.
I loved their 2005 rellunch, with the new set (the best set of all news stations so far), and a new schedule. It included 3 anchors on Sky News Today, and a lot of waliking down the studio. But the ratings droped and they changed everything.
Today it is boring and the set isn't used as much as it should be. They made some cuts and changed the graphics. The only thing that is still good about them is that they really are the first for breaking news.

My dream news channel would be CNN in Sky's set.

I agree - I remember seeing the new set and thinking "perfect"... It just looked superb!

My dream news channel would be CNN in Sky's set.

That would be so cool. CNN Today could have its own presentation point, World News could have its own presentation point, World Sport could have its own presentation point, etc...

I agree that the music is great, but it is a bit repetitive. I like the way CNN has lots of different music for the different programs.

Sky is making another relunch next week. They have new schedule and everything will be single anchored, which is a disaster ,for me.
Also they will have new music. People who heard it say it's great, an upbeat remix of the current theme.
We'll have to wait until Monday to see it.

Are they still advertising it? I would hate to see them go back on their word.

Still no relaunch.

I was wondering, is the Sky News you get outside the UK the same one we get here in Britain? Or is there a 'Sky World' channel? :D

Canada is a SKY free zone! We have nothing to do with Sky products... all I know is that SKY NZ/AU is the regional station down there

They change their schedule, background, but not the overall look. They change the most then any other channel. Since BBC NEWS 24 unseated them they keep on changing. The formula hasn't really work out for them, after all the millions spent on that set, they don't use that much.
