Bad design - Sign language in tv news

If you visited before, this post is similar.

If you watch TV1 news before (by intention or accidentally selected wrong channel), there is a live sign language translation at the bottom right. Many years ago, it used to be quite big, so it was 'see-able' by the deaf I think. Last month, on impulse I tuned to TV1's news and here's a screenshot.

Look at the bottom right corner, that is the space for live sign language. OMG, such a tiny little space, I can barely read what is being shown, can you? Are we expecting the deaf to have 52" TV or cinema screen at home to watch TV news?
