Over the years, various scoring bugs have been tried and tested. One of the most memorable for sports fans was the theme used from 2001-2003. It was a black rectangle that could be seen through, incorporating a small baseball graphic for all the major airings of baseball games. Of course, the boxes were changed for the NFL games, Fox chose to use white. If that was not enough then the Super Bowl XXXVI would change everything, with the boxes then turning to yellow.
This brings use on to more recent times of 2003-2006. Fox Sports decided that instead of using team names or abbreviations, they would use the team logos. After all, anyone watching is likely to support one of the teams playing, or be an avid sports fan, in which case they would be able to link the logo to the team anyway.
The FoxBox was a weird creation at this point. It would start as a normal black rectangle but alternate between different things, such as black parallelograms. In the end a “Home Run” feature would pop up to emphasize that exact achievement, with the team name also in the picture.
This brings us up to date with more current events, from 2006-2010. The banner was to be upgraded once more. Fox Sports decided that all viewers should be able to see the score at any one time. For this reason they put the fixture and score as a permanent toolbar on the right hand side, which seemed to work well for many viewers.
Fox Sports have and will continue to grow as fast as they can. Take 2004 for instance, when they introduced HDTV coverage. Thanks to 720p HDTV technology the games could be viewed in much better quality. In fact, this became so popular, that almost all the broadcasts on Fox Sports now use HDTV technology, offering viewers a much better viewing experience.
