Sports Graphics Packages, Historically


Recommended Posts

In the final years of the Champ Car Series, it was unable to receive the same high-quality coverage it once had on ESPN/ABC. As a result, from 2002 until its end in 2008, coverage was split between SPEED, CBS, Spike, and NBC (with ESPN returning for the final season).

 

Starting in 2005, Champ Car itself started producing the broadcasts, and used a single unified graphics package for each channel.

By 2007, which was the final year of the sport before it reunited with IndyCar, the networks were allowed to use their own graphics again.

 

NBC’s were a repurposed version of the Sunday Night Football graphics they had introduced a few months earlier:

CBS’s were based on their NFL graphics as well:

Are we expecting FOX to stick with the "Super Bowl = new graphics" pattern this year?

I wouldn't be surprised if they do, but I figured this current scoreboard graphic would have awhile left in it (they've adapted the style into NASCAR broadcasts last year).

Random but I saw an NFL on FOX game from the 2003 preseason still using their 2002 graphics package.

 

 

 

Of course as we all know they radically changed their graphics starting week 1 of the NFL regular season.

Got me thinking nowadays broadcasters do not do that anymore lol, they change their graphics starting in the 1st game of the preseason (2017-2019 NFL on FOX graphics) or in the Super Bowl (their current comic book graphics as well as all of their counterparts at CBS & NBC)

Probably get more confirmation next week with the Rolex 24 but.... NBC might actually be transferring the SNF package to motorsports?

EDIT nvm that might've been a series created graphic because Rolex 24 qualifying has the usual graphics

 

 

From what im reading the roar graphics are last year's on that intentionally. The new ones will debut on NBC Saturday.
