How is the new Vodafone T-Box branding for you folks?

I haven't seen one yet, but heard it's bright Vodafone Red now?

I just wrote this on their Facebook page.

Not a fan of the colour changes on the T-box.

The colour scheme makes the planner and guide very difficult to look at. This combination is hard on eyes!

The soft blues of TCL have been replaced by harsh in-your-face red, dark grey and black.

I realise this is vf's corporate brand colours but I just wish you had made it a bit easier on the eye!

Eye strain waiting to happen. It's a shame that a UI designer did not review this... or did they :-/

I like the font a lot better but some of the red just doesn't look good. It's not that bad IMO but needs a little tweaking. Also it may be my imagination but it seems more responsive. The picture seems to come up faster when I turn on the TV and generally seems snappier. Maybe it's reboot related but I think there may have been other tweaks.

I think it's OK, in fact I think it's faster too so my initial hostility to the Vodafonisation tm was a bit premature.

michaelmurfy: Has anyone got any screenshots?

my 2 mega pixel camera did not do a good job of this, but it may serve to give you a flavour of the look until someone uploads a better quality one.

Well I have to say that the box and remote rebranding was pretty rough Tongue Out

Any chance of a getting a repaint, maybe when it's returned it'll let me watch any show any time and maybe be a mini cell site,
hmm... also James and a Vodafone Ninja are available at the click of the button.

Also the JohnR button! That would come in handy!

All seems like a very reasonable request.

Personally I would have added a request for a delorian as well.

Wonder if they'll work better?

I haven't followed the whole TBox thing in a while, last time I tuned it the problem was the boxes were laggie... 

...but we all know that RED just goes faster!

Couldn't forget the delorian. Though they might require it in red with a logo on the side. Maybe we could ask Rhys Darby for one of those giant LoGos he has.

Those giant LoGos are now on the Smales farm building and look very nice at night lit up

nzfatmatt, next time you post a picture that large I will just delete the post. This time I've changed the size for you... Please be a bit more considerate to other users.
