ABC Guide


ABC Guide

ABC Guide is an automated datacast service used as a filler programme during the downtime of various ABC television channels. It launched in the early hours of May 30, 2006 and is used during the down-time of ABC2, and in place of the 7pm state news bulletin on the ABC's high definition channel.

The ABC Guide features a primetime television guide advertising programming for ABC1 and ABC2. ABC DiG (radio) is used, along with song information at the bottom of the screen, as background music to the service, which also includes a national weather map.

The current onair identity of the ABC Guide features six informational slides. The design and colour scheme is based on ABC Online's branding, with the use of blue, yellow, and white. Each slide also uses elements from respective channel's on-air branding, which include ABC1, ABC2, and DiG Radio. Light blue, orange and white was previously used.
