In July 2001, due to the main success of Sky Sports News, the Channel had soon scrapped its “.com TV” look and launched another graphics change. From April 2002, the channel stayed in the same studio, but with a silver look replacing the old wooden bench, and there was a promise of being first for breaking news, along with much more useful information. In 2004 Sky Sports News changed its image, with a more open blue look to the channel. In August 2009, the channel received a small make-over with regards to a new music sequence and a new font used for all on-screen displays, this was despite some fans expecting wholesale changes.
