Newshub (and another flag poll)

3 News is dead (nasty autoplay video), from the ashes rises Newshub.

On day 1 the Newshub website looks good. There’s a distinct absence of the clickbait trash that makes up 80% of the offerings of NZ Herald and Stuff sites these days. Hope they can keep that up.

And they’re out of the gate with the first poll of the year (nasty autoplay video), on the proposed flag change. The gap has closed a bit over the summer, but the “keep the flag” camp still outnumbers “change the flag” by two to one.

    The website seems an improvement over the general TV3 one in terms of visual clutter. I’m appreciative and cynical me is thinking it’s only going to last as long as their focus group team thinks it takes to get us hooked in.

    Those links autoload the video for me but don’t autoplay. Great to have the warning though.

    still not watching TV3 or any of the other channels. To much advertising, not enough of the other stuff.

    Looked the same and sounded the same to me. But the ad for the new show (so called) is doing my head in.
