The regional Fox Sports networks still using the same graphics packages for MLB that have been in use since October 2017.

 

Also, ESPN's sticking with last year's graphics as opposed to their KBO package.

WNBA opening day with what looks to be a slightly new score graphic on ESPN. Different from last season and looks to have modifications from the NBA broadcasts earlier this year on ESPN.

Unsurprisingly MLB on FOX also sticks with the current graphics they have used since 2017 postseason. But they bring back the 1996 theme song you heard that right!

NBC Sports regional networks are still using the MLB package that debuted in 2016. I still like it, but I would't have minded something new for this year.

Did anyone notice all the networks are using the same MLB logo transition when showing replays?

NBC and Sportsnet look like they'll keep the status quo for scorebugs and the like for the playoffs. NBC will produce the Toronto feed and Sportsnet the Edmonton feed, and worth noting NBC had their usual replay wipe while SN had a NHL logo for theirs.

Does anybody know why FOX decided to bring back the MLB theme this season? I was so happy when I heard it on Saturday, but I'm just wondering why it took them 10 years to finally correct their horrendous mistake.

Man, I wish NBC would use the same graphics for all aspects of their NHL coverage. It just looks so lazy and disorganized with two different sets in one broadcast.

Fox said they're going to use the NFL theme for NFL telecasts only, beginning this year:

WatchLOI (League of Ireland) introduced a new clock and I am NOT a fan.

So, highly possible that this is just the eir Sport broadcast package because they have the game in Ireland on regular TV.

After keeping an eye out for years, I finally found a full game showing off the Oakland Athletics KICU package from the mid/late 2000's. This is from their final season on the channel before moving to CSN/NBCSCA full time the following year. I've always loved this era of KICU graphics, especially in the years prior to this one that used a score bug in the bottom right-hand corner (the score bar you see in this video was only used for one year; the rest of the package remained unchanged from the "bug" era of the prior handful of seasons).  Unfortunately, this video isn't of the highest quality, but with how rare A's games from the mid-90's through late-00's are on YouTube, I'm grateful. EDIT: Here's literally three seconds of the score bug that was used in the prior season. I like the score bar used in the video below, but when I think of this era of the A's on KICU, I think of the bug. As mentioned previously, the rest of the graphics package didn't change upon the shift from bug to bar.

I never liked it when TV stations would have the scorebug/bar ONLY displayed during the "main" behind-the-pitcher camera view, and then have it disappear whenever any other different camera view was being displayed, including when the ball was actually in play.  This always seemed very silly and annoying to me, and I'm glad that no TV station (that I know of) really does that anymore.  If you're going to have a scorebug, just let us see it the whole time, ESPECIALLY when the ball is in play.  Isn't that kind of the point of a scorebug?  Haha.

Didn't know Bashar al-Assad found time to call A's games in the mid-2000s

The new graphics package has had a soft launch of sorts during some high school football telecasts this weekend. I quite like it so far. IMO it's a step up from the last couple of ESPN CFB score bugs, which I felt tried to squeeze a bit too much into a small space.
