PANAMSAT 4, 68.5 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/pas4.html
Bloomberg Information Television on channel 18, as part of the SHOWTIME
Network DStv bouquet, has changed their on-screen layout drastically. It
is not anymore identical to the French version on Eutelsat II-f2.
The on-screen graphics have now a filing cabinet design, with the labels
sticking out, above the various files. On the foremost file the actual
information is displayed, the second (still hidden) file displays only
the label, mentioning the item to follow on display. The on-screen
colours are more decent, all bright colours have dissappeared. The most
obvious change however is the increase in size of the in-screen TV
picture by 22 percent. It occupies now, still from the right hand top,
about 50 percent of the screen surface. It is easier to look at and the
quantity of submitted information, at one given time, has remained the
