CNN International gets fresh look

CNN International has been given a fresh look today, bringing it in-line CNN US.

The international news channel has been given a new look with new graphics and the CNN logo slightly re-aligned on screen. The new look which was unveiled this morning copies a similar style to that of CNN in the US.

Since Friday both CNN and CNN International have been joint broadcasting to bring viewers up to speed with the latest news from Japan. The International output has yet to be moved to a wide-screen or HD output.

Early ratings data show that viewers chose to view CNN over rivals Fox News and MSNBC as the scale of the disaster unfolded on Friday. Over 3 million viewers were watching late Friday morning, a figure which the news network rarely sees.
