Was happy with the picture Saturday night but not the presenters or poor production skills like leaving mics on when presenters obviously thought they weren't on air etc. Still amatuer hour from that perspective.

Laurie,I thought he was talking about his show "after the bounce" and the segments they are going to have.One of the "technology" that he showed was the Ted Whitten 3/4 time speech and they had superimposed Brad Johnson into the huddle,they had him standing there in a dressing gown .

ah now I see yes David King was in a room I think it was green background then he was standing in water at St Kilda beach fully dressed superimposed of course but was good,as was 360 excellent HD

cheers laurie

Watching the panel shows last night (AFL 360 & On the Couch) its easy to see the temporary nature of the hd studio set up with the variable lighting etc. Eg Paul Roos face was a bit out of sync whereas Gerard and Mike were quite stunning (wrinkles aside).

Still not complaining - at least it's high def at a decent bit rate and with the promise of better things to come when the new Fox Footy studios are completed later in the year.

agree pc9 makes you puke when you go back to fta SD offering :sick: if the guys at Seven haven't dropped their jaws by now watching this then someone will mention it to them and say "why can't you do this" even the good old days of 576p were better than what we get now

looking at the March Foxtel magazine they only have a 30 min Pre game show on the saturdays from R1, which i find super dissapointing. and no AFL 360 on March 29th due to the thursday round 1 game, would of loved a 6:30 episode leading into the 7:30 bounce, and have shows called, inside Collingwood and inside Essendon.

some good news they have 2 back to back games for the teams playing each other like the old Last time they met (it has no round numbers so could be either classics or a last time they met type games)

They've been showing some old matches from the last few years featuring teams in the NAB cup. All the ones I've seen were shot it HD and look magic :D

Surely the AFL must be stoked with how their product is being presented...are you listening channel 7?? :poke:

Hard to fault so far, every game has actually been in HD and this weekend there were games from Perth and Tassie.

Yep Perth was the worst SD AFL on Foxtel, was just a blur on my Kuro now the window has been opened pity I missed out on the Eagles game

cheers laurie

You're right Laurie - it's like a whole new world seeing the games from there in HD!

Kind of like comparing the Mona Lisa with my kids finger painting.

Actually it will be good to get reaquainted with 7s crappy picture again...........don't feel so bad about forking out bucks for Austar HD.

Jesus i wet my pants laughing when I read this bit:

"From day one our plan was to use our own commentators for the NAB Cup Grand Final. They're the best. Footy fans deserve no less,'' Seven station boss Lewis Martin said.

Not when it comes to picture quality! what a hopeless bunch of dickheads and he gets paid 100's to say this crap

Those graphics Fox are using look pretty cool

They look outstanding... its a shame now that the Bombers have 16-17 games on FTA this year... Ill only get to see this for a handful of Dons games... :(

This is huge factor in me not going Foxtel - most Dons games won't be proper HD.........what a rort how supporters of the biggest clubs get shafted if they want to go PayTV..............

Though I won't be surprised if the pathetic Se7en coverage forces me to sign up..............wait & see.
