I have seen this advertising campaign on the streets and newspapers many times recently. These ads are of ITV‘s “Injustice,“ a 5–part series (June 6 – 20) starring James Purefoy as a criminal barrister recovering from traumatic events. Its black & white silhouette design is quite striking, with images of knife and gun.
ITV is the biggest and the oldest commercial television network in the UK, having begun broadcasting in 1955. ITV used to produce strong current affairs and documentary programs, according to Wikipedia. But from the late 1990s it has changed its direction and now its TV listings are full of entertainment programs; soap operas, such as Coronation Street and Emmerdale, “reality TV” like Celebrity Fit Club and Love Island, and sports. We rarely watch the channel because there are no programs really appealing to us…
One interesting episode of ITV. ITV said that it would “vigorously defend” its brand and reputation, if, as rumoured, Apple renames its Apple TV to “iTV”, as in a series of their popular product names like iPhone, iPod, or iPad (Telegraph article). Apple TV is still “Apple TV”, so I guess it was just a rumor or Apple gave up assuming that they are going to loose the legal battle.
