A+E Networks UK's History channel on DStv rebrands again; more gold leaf visible as temporary idents will be replaced with a new ident pack by June.
The History (DStv 186) channel on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform has rebranded again from this Tuesday, 1 March.
The channel supplied to MultiChoice by A+E Networks UK keeps the general colour palette and has a set of new on-air channel idents for History, but these are only temporary.
These new History idents viewers are seeing will be replaced by June with a new ident pack that A+E Networks in the United States is still working on.
All in all there's more gold. If History was a book instead of a TV channel, the pages would be embossed with more gold leaf throughout.
Show names on History during and at the end of promos now have a more "classic look"; it gives History almost a "vintage" on-air feel.
