I believe Spark is like Telstra, they're the privatised successor of the old Telecom NZ - they're obviously targeting graphics to be visible on mobile devices as well as on TV. It's fine but does look weird seeing such big graphics in HD.
You can tell it's optimised for mobile - this is a webcam pic of my phone. The text is still really clear (granted its a Pixel 3XL) despite being on a smaller screen. The Fox Cricket graphics look great on a big TV (I have Foxtel 4K/UHD on a 65" LG) but you see they're not optimised for the smaller screen. Spark being a telco first is probably why they've gone that route. The NBL did something similar a few years back when they returned to Foxtel - they wanted a product that would look good in a mobile-first world rather than just looking good on the TV.

I know it's a scoreboard rather than a scorebug, but can I please give a dishonorable mention to the mcg scoreboard for the cricket. Poor hierarchy of information (extras permanently displayed in the fourth row of information??), rounds the overs (ie says over 8 rather than 7.3), doesn't tell you who the fielder is, barely shows any bowling stats, and when a new player is introduced, it tells you what number they are by saying "shirt 99." Wtf is shirt?!?

The MCG scoreboard is the worst I have seen in the cricketing world. The level 1 scoreboard may as well not exist, it is so small.

The level 1 LED ones used to be bigger before they converted the whole ground to LED advertising.

Normally for limited overs games the display the overs correctly its only the tests they round up
