Just caught More4 for the first time tonight. Not impressed. It made L!ve TV look professional: trailers cut off by the adverts; iffy aspect ratios that crop the picture too much; and, horror of horrors, when airing the first episode of The Daily Show that most British viewers will see, you do not screw up the picture until the explanation that this is a “best of the last two weeks” show has finished, thus completely confusing everyone watching. I’d seen all the episodes and I wasn’t sure what was going on, and with the poor editing that went into this one-off “global edition”, I’m pretty sure no one else had a clue what was happening either.
Still, brand new Daily Show tomorrow, so fingers crossed that they can press the ‘play’ button without screwing it up.
