Sky gives its Freeview and Freesat channels a new look

Sky is preparing to refresh its Freeview and Freesat channels Challenge and Pick TV from this coming Monday.

New characters feature on the new look Challenge from Monday

Challenge, which was last overhauled in 2011, gets a new animated logo, while Sky's entertainment channel Pick TV becomes Pick. The new logos were first spotted on the newly revamped Freesat website before being confirmed by the channels.

The old and the new...
Writing on their Facebook page, Challenge explained the new animated characters which will take centre stage from Monday:
"The re-fresh introduces a family of animated characters to Challenge, the home of contest, who will feature in both the on and off air look and feel.

Each lovable character is designed to complement the fun vibrant collection of programming on the channel, from physical contest to game shows, with a character designed to introduce every classic and original programme.

Buzzerhead never gets the answers right when he watches Challenge shows but enjoys classic series of Family Fortunes, Catchphrase and Supermarket Sweep. Tiny and Ellie can’t get enough of Challenges flagship physical shows, including TNA Impact Wrestling, Takeshi’s Castle, UK'S Strongest Man and Ninja Warrior. Cecil The Geek is always informative enjoying Eggheads and Cleverdicks, while Les Play and Kitty Prize are fanatical about great contest entertainment like Blockbusters, Bullseye and Who Wants to Be A Millionaire."
