Sky News refreshes is on-screen lower third banner making it bigger and more complementary to the black and white news ticker.
Sky News (DStv 402) today refreshed its on-screen lower third digital graphic captions (or chyrons) changing the main banner to black text on white, and making it bigger. It looks cleaner and also has a slight 3D edge.
Sky News also uses a similar bigger caption banner but with white text on a red banner for some stories.
The news ticker in the bottom scroll remains unaffected in terms of size and colour with white on black and the main banner now complementing it better. (FYI - Sky News' news ticker format is exactly the same as the eNews Channel on DStv 403.)
