    I heard about this. Did it use the ugly SNA set or the newsroom?

    Did the newswall work?

    It is on the main set with Prime News in the plasmas instead of Sky News. All the keys are the same style as Sky’s though the music is different and the upper left-hand dog says Prime News which also covers the Sky News logo when they use tracks from them.

    Not sure how it will rate – might do ok as the other networks news both start at 6, so there’s no news competition on free-to-air tv at that time.

    I read in the NZ Herald that it was quite poorly done…

    So the astons are the same as Sky’s? What theme do they use???

    Do they still show NZ Newsweek from TV3?

    Well the presenter is also the producer so I imagine it’s a pretty tight operation but no better/worse than any other Sky News show as it is basically the same thing – not that the NZ Herald has any credibility – they are anti-anything TV lol

    Yep the style is the same as Sky except for the music – the baseline keys (‘astons’ no longer exist except maybe in Ethiopian TV) are the same as Sky’s too.

    Hmm that open reminds me alot of the new National Nine News Morning Edition open. (Formerly National Nine Morning News 11am).

    So what theme are they using?

    Do they have any NZ based reporters or is alot of it irrelevant Aussie news from Nine’s reporters???

    Do you mind if I show your caps to some forumers at http://www.mediaspy.org??

    feel free…

    yes it does look like the Nine Morning News.

    not sure what the music is – something off a generic production CD no doubt

    Righty. This is one thing I can talk a bit about because I know the NZ journalist. Emphasis on THE – singular. Works out of NewstalkZB newsroom, which is why they have Barry Soper on a lot. They take all the stories that ZB generates and turns them into VOs or the occasional SOT, mostly with Australian file footage, or things Prime in Albany are starting to build their library up with.

    Seems to be rating very well, more than what some in the industry were expecting. And yes you’d be right, because Prime NZ is owned by Channel Nine, the intro is a bit of a rip from National Nine News.

    Hmmm, when you say Australian file footage do you mean footage Sky’s owners have (9 and 7) or just of AUst scenes??

    “Prime in Albany are starting to build their library up with.”

    Where abouts is that? I wouldnt have thought Prime Albury/Wodonga would really care about NZ news. Unless your talking about somewhere in NZ.
