On December 4th this year Australia got a new free to air channel (its been quite a year for that). The launch of ABC3 has been a long way coming, a dedicated children’s channel was officially proposed in 2007 by the government of the time, but had obviously been an ambition for the national broadcaster way before that.

Watch as the Prime Minister flicks the switch on the channel, and look out for a follow up post with more about branding of ABC3 soon.. right here.

Channel 4 goes 3D for a week.

Last month Channel 4 embraced the 3D television fad with a week of special programming, and some nifty on-air branding to go along with it.

Along with the 3D promos, a special 3D ident was also produced. Check out the rest of the Channel 4 idents here.
