    In this pack you find a large selection of UK TV and Radio channel logos. If the logo you require isn't in this pack, let me know or create your own. Please do check that the channel you require is not due to close in the near future. Use this list for info. There are many high resolution logos on Wikipedia and Satlogos.

    Please if you do make your own logos for a channel remember to share them with the rest of the community on this thread.

    This pack now contains all Freeview and Freesat channel logos available, Sky and Virgin Media channels will follow soon. Duplicate logos are included due to alternative naming structures on each of the different platforms. All regional naming variations for BBC and ITV should be included, if I've missed yours let me know.

    Big thanks go to cheetah05 for the template and the core of the glossy Freeview TV logos. Thanks also go to Mew, TritonT and jsimo01 and others.

    UK TV Thumbs Pack Standard

    The TV thumbs are designed to simply use the channels logo with a transparent background and all TV logos are 80x80px. The radio guide uses the channel logo with a black background at 300x300px. These look best in list view. Avoid channel logos that use a dark (grey, black, red) colour as this can be lost or difficult to read on the dark coloured skins or on the radio black background. Generally I convert any dark colours to pure white.

    Again if you do make your own logos for a channel remember to share them with the rest of the community on this thread. Also you can simply 'drop' these logos on to the glossy design template above to create the glossy thumbs.

    UK TV Thumbs Pack Glossy

    This pack was originally created and maintained by TritonT. The original thread can be found here

    Clicky clicky...

    Seems to install OK, but the installer text welcomes me to something off the window, and the package appears in the MPEI as '- Matthew Carter' without any other description...

    Also - how can we get this to appear on the list of known extensions?

    Does someone have the logos for Crime +1 and Sky Sports HD 4?

    Not sure why it would welcome you to something off the window. Will check it out, will sort the MPEI description too.

    Dunno how to get it to appear on the list of known extensions...

    Will take a look, there wasn't any around when I made the others.

  8. Many thanks for your hard work.

    There are a couple of BBC logo's missing. My setup finds BBC 1 & BBC 2 as "BBC ONE Scot" and "BBC TWO Scot" respectively. I just created a couple of copies of other logo's and renamed them. Works a treat.

    If you want to update your list.

    Thanks again! :)

    Should be fixed now.

    Added most of them, some already existed in the pack [QVC] others the channel has closed [Fashion TV]. If they don't show up try deleting your cache. I'm still waiting for some higher quality versions of some logos Sky Sports HD 4 & Men&Movies included. Any .png file above 100px wide or a high quality .jpg is usually OK.

    Will get those renamed so they will be in the next pack.

    There probably will be a few logos that don't have the right names if anyone finds any more let me know. :D
