This is new for the main sports channels.

Be good to do one for Movie and News channels.

And they used to have this on channel 0 a few years back though it was a better design and had more channels, well me thinks it was a lot better than the current one anyways.

Yeah the design is ridiculous... 5 Channels? Really, Sky?

Take out the highlights channel (OBVIOUSLY), and you can put the remaining 4 channels in a perfect 4x4 grid and utilise all of the space. 

As it is now, there is so much blank space, which makes the channels small and hard to watch even on a 42"

jackfry: And they used to have this on channel 0 a few years back though it was a better design and had more channels, well me thinks it was a lot better than the current one anyways.

The old mosaic was a 4x4 grid with the centre four squares taken out for the Preview channel (I think). I don't think it had the audio for each channel so you could only select by picture.

A couple of years ago MTV ran a similar mosaic on Foxtel. The MTV guys were surprised how many people sat on the mosaic and just selected audio without going full-screen.

Oops, obviously I mean 2x2 grid in my above reply. That would be an awesome setup in a good size...

There's been so much sport on lately, I've found myself flicking between 3 channels at various times. Given the CWC is now over, and Sky have not secured IPL rights.. but there's still plenty to be watched
