Yes, they're huge all around the world, and analogous to CNN, the international variants of CNBC are better than the US variant. The only channel that might be bigger than CNBC in terms of business news is Bloomberg, and while they have good analysis and insight, their anchors are boooring and the production on Bloomberg is really low budget.
I actually like CNBC domestic, despite a few shows. Their production level is very high, and they seem to know how to integrate everything. They also don't shy away from showing international simulcasts and shows.
I agree. I like CNBC US except for the late afternoon / evening shows like Fast Money, Cramer, Suze Orman, etc. And Worldwide Exch is such a good show! I'm glad they simulcast it.

I'd also like to see CNBC use graphics like these, but I won't hold my tongue.
LOL, CNBC is extremely conservative regarding changes. Imagine the look on traders' faces when they find a completely different CNBC being displayed. I don't think they could pull it off without some sort of backlash.
I can't imagine them ever getting rid of the two white and blue tickers since they've had that design ever since the 80's when they were still called FNN, but the lower thirds, charts and other backdrops could use a change. That navy motif they use is so dark and dreary. The NBC peacock is such a pretty and colorful logo and I'd like to see NBC/CNBC/MSNBC use those colors instead of just navy, emerald, and black. MSNBC's new graphics are a step in the right direction.
I don't know, guess I like dark and dreary. They stick to one theme, and run with it. I especially love the 3D stock charts and how they transition to different statistics. Next time you watch, take notice at how the boxes float above one another. It's really a cool effect. You can also compare all three channels, and how they're all unified into one central design. Each network has its small touches, but it's all done in taste. CNN should take hint.
I suppose you're right that the three channels don't all have to look exactly the same. I guess I just feel that CNBC's navy theme is getting a little long in the tooth. Remember that light blue and yellow theme in 2003/2004? That was nice.
Edit: those analysts are vain enough to post videos of all of their appearance on CNBC onto YouTube. So here's a video from that era. I like the color choices. And look...the text isn't in all caps.

Now they're running that pot documentary again. Guess I better toke up to relieve all that stress I built up watching Fast Money.

Edit: Does Australia use NTSC or PAL?

Looks a lot simpler, less extravagant than the old look. Looks like they've also had a custom font created for them. Italicised , the font closely resembles Crillee, but with minor differences.

at least they do not anymore use those 3d charts that are so hard to copy in Europe & Asia CNBC.
but i wonder in Asia though, i think they just recently changed those graphic package very much resemble the old US ones...
aren't those efforts somewhat wasted?

The posting of this video is designed to facilitate criticism, commentary, scholarship, and research relating to the television broadcasting industry, and for purposes of historic preservation, consistent with the provisions set forth in Section 107 of Title 17, United States Code.
What that says in laymen's terms is that under US law, it is legal to post videos for academic purposes, basically. I'm not sure if Australian law has a similar ruling, nor do I know if it has ever made the media companies think twice about pulling my videos, but I think it's a good safety net. I still don't want to upload anything from Newscorp, though, after seeing what they did to you, Morpium.

i guess it's because those people may think that CNBC Asia different from the CNBCs...
i have a disclaimer as well, from Philippine constitution & Sinagpore Law on my user page.
btw... CNBC Squawk Box Europe...

Also, why doesn't CNBC/US follow the lead of Bloomberg where the entire evening and overnight schedule will cover the Asian and European trading day and instead have to add a separate channel for them? I mean it should be cost-effective for CNBC to have a single channel in the US.

I've also noticed that CNBC Asia and Europe have most of their programmes concentrated during their respective morning hours. Why can't they be like CNBC/US to cover the entire trading day continuously anymore? Bloomberg Asia and UK has followed this trend as well and there is minimal difference between them and Bloomberg US (with Charlie Rose being aired at different times in each feed).
