bbchdBBC have confirmed their intention to reduce the use of their DOG (digital on-screen graphic) on the BBC HD channel. In an announcement today, Danielle Nagler, Head of HDTV at BBC Vision, said:
‘From this weekend, assuming no technical glitches in the areas responsible for implementing this, the BBC HD DOG will be removed from all films shown on the channel and the majority of the drama content. For other programming, we are turning down the DOG to the lowest level that we can while allowing it to remain visible.

In doing this, I’m aiming to make sure that at least some of the programming which really showcases HD quality and experience is DOG-free.’
The BBC Internet Blog, where this news was published, often receive emails and messages from viewers requesting the reduction in logo opacity, as well as removing completely. A poll was also created on this very site, with 81% of you in favor of removing the DOG.
