Reports suggest the new logo could be rolled out on-screen this Autumn.
There have been reports that the new design, which sees minimal changes to the font and spacing of the blocks, cost tens of thousands.
The BBC said, via The Sun: "We are using our own font — which we own the intellectual rights to — when we update content or BBC products. It would be wrong to suggest the costs of the design of the blocks was significant."
