L Screen Format
For the past few months CHAN HD 211 Vancouver, has switched their normal screen on the morning news to this new L Screen format. The news occupies just 1/3 of the screen while the rest is taken up with a large banner, two different News crawlers running along the bottom etc. On the right hand size they run ads, weather, traffic reports etc. I have yet to meet anybody who likes this new format. Many of them feel that "it's just too busy and distracting" etc.
I wonder how people that have an old 21" CRT screen feel about it? We have a 19" flat screen Samsung in the kitchen area that we just use at meal times. If something really newsworthy is about to come on, I run into the den to view it on the 46" Samsung because you miss a lot of detail with this new, "trendy format."
