    6am, and the new look Sky News is here

    The website went live a little early at ~5:38am and was screencapped by me the second I saw it load up (and I’d been trying constantly to see it do so!) http://tinypic.com/ev9jeo.jpghttp://tinypic.com/ev9jeo.jpg>

    New intro music, lens flare on the intro sequence and speeded up looking graphics, before it goes to the more normal music (but remixed)

    Think Eamonn said something about “welcome BBC” but didn’t quite hear what he said (was too busy looking at the set and graphics)

    First story on the intro sequence: Birmingham riots. Wilma hurricane approaching Florida. David Davis/Cameron.

    Active button is bottom left, left of Sky News logo/clock, and rotates with the website address/email address.

    Looks great!

    Umm, most of the video clips they’re using for stories appear to still be in 4:3 instead of 16:9…

    Can’t wait to see the first Breaking News strap… just hope they’ve still got that iconic woosh!

    i was going to say that too, active loads VERY quick.

    also, the startup sequence was very TV-AM! it built itself up slowly & with confidence, to a roar.. then you’re ready for the news.

    ..i think when they start to break something and all turns red, i might faint.

    Looking good, however if I flick back from NTL digital (16:9) to NTL analog signal the 4:3 picture only shows the ‘ws’ of ‘sky.com/news’… I would have thought the graphics would have been designed with a 4:3 safe area in mind….

    Do you get the feeling it wasn’t a good idea to launch a totally new look and feel with a new presenter? It’s thrown Eamonn in at the deep end a bit hasn’t it? Surely it’d be hard enough for any regular Sky News presenter, but a new one just seems to be asking for trouble…

    Still, he’s not doing bad… few nervous pauses but not bad really The 4:3 video for reports is really annoying though. Someone surely thought about that before it went live?! It’s one of the things that has annoied me about BBC News 24’s “widescreen” and makes it a bit of a joke.

    Don’t like the “locator” as much for place names… that big animated “L I V E” with the location under it worked really well visually, where as the new one looks a bit “itv news” doens’t it? Guess it’s just a matter of getting used to it, but I’ll miss that from the old style…
