ITV spell the name of this station without a space as in ITVBe, so why do you break it up into two words?

Would you be happy if ITV spelt your name as "Brian tist"?

Corin: Looking at the logo, it's two words.

The "I" flows into the "T" flows into the "V" and then there's a space and then "B" flows into the "E".

Perhaps you need some glasses?

Briantist: Also, I note that industry magazine Broadcast calls it "ITV Be" as well: Can newbie ITV Be match the staying power of ITV3? | Comment | Broadcast .

Briantist: I have to agree with Corin on this relatively trivial point but in the non-stylised text, ITV's web page shows no space. My PVR and TV list it with no space as well. On Broadcast's web page, the space does not look 'right' somehow.

Mike Davison: OK. At the end of the day it's my web site and I use a consitant style guide - or at least I try - when listing channel names.

The rules are:

a) Title Case For Channel Names

b) Acroymns are in upper case (BBC, ITV, UTV, STV, USA, CBS) however rendered in the logo;

c) "+1" channels are all have a space before the "+1".

d) Channel names that are sub-brands have a space between the provider name and the sub-brand. So it's "ITV" and "ITV 2" and "ITV 3". Where the channel name doesn't use the main channel name they can be linked "Channel 4" and "4seven".

The problem with using the "wrong" case is that it makes lists look untidy.

BBC one
BBC TWO
BBC three
BBC FOUR
BBC NEWS
cbbc
CBeebies

And then there's

Citv
food NETWORK
horrorchannel
movies4men
truTV

and so on.

Mike Davison: Perhaps. It's worth airing. The EPG names have limits, thus 101 on Freeview is "BBC ONE Lon", for example.

I have some database comparison code that matches what is shown on this site with others and the various EPG providers.

So, you get the Channel 5 extra channel "5*" called "5 Star" in some places, but it has never been called that (it was called FIVElife and then Fiver though), I guess the punctuation broke someone's system!

I just try to keep things as consistent as I can.
