Yeah, it's good to see the Seven logo integrated into the Prime logo. Very similar to what NBN did a few years ago, when Nine brought their dots back.

Its great to see the new look Prime. All the ads are now channel 7. Problem though is the transparent logo has appeared down the bottom "Prime7" and its in a weird spot on the plasma. Its not to the right its almost like its on the 4:3 setting because of how far indented it is.

It isn't really situated in a corner like a logo should! Though it can't get any worse than when MTV had their logo half way down the screen on the left hand side! That was just ridiculous!

No thats true and something tells me with the Melbourne ads i have been getting that this might be a temporary feed just like 7TWO was when they finally launched. Either way bar that logo everything else is fine by me.

Its bloody awful!

The new graphics for GWN are terrible it's an orange and white theme, thought 7 was Red?

GWN 7 News doesn't sound right, and if they are so close to 7 why don't we get the HD channels in the regional areas?

Crock of crap in my opinion, If i was 7 I'd be embarrassed to have my logo and reputation affiliated with GWN.

I reckon eventually PRIME will just become 7. Because this branding doesn't roll off the tongue! For a major regional network to just change their name; people won't soon be going "Oh I'm watching Bones on Prime7 tonight", because everyone is just so used to "Prime". I myself have nearly always just called it 7 anyway.

Has anyone else noticed that Prime has been moved to digital channel 7, not Channel 6 as it previously was? :? Though on one TV it is, and on another we've got it isn't! Maybe need to update channels or something :?

To be honest with you i think its hideous and also think it will rebrand 7 eventually. I think that its a process that they are taking. I think it will be called 7NSW, 7WA, 7VIC just like 7QLD. As for the scanning its still 6 on mine. :?

The thing with that is, they need something people will say and it won't sound odd, awkward; It's like I said with people and the use of the name "Prime7", no-one will say "I'm watching a show on 7NSW tonight" or what have you.

Is it just me or does it seem that Prime is showing the 7TWO ads reel during their breaks. Its all 7TWO this and 7TWO that so i decided to record 7TWO for a couple of hours and to my surprise one ad break was a complete replica to what was shown on Prime7. I thought something fishy was going on because there is minimal promotion of the shows coming in February these past couple of days. There has been a couple but mostly 7TWO or 7mate ads.

As for the logo its crap and needs changing now. Fail on that part. The news logo with the white background behind it looks hideous, i mean when they bring up the reporter or where the story is being shot from, the caption box.
