Seven Cricket Coverage


#747

In Regional Mainland VIC via Prime 7 appears to be SD upconverted to HD. Graphics look sharp -vision is very soft… looks awful


#748

You’re 100% right. It’s definitely upconverted SD.


#749

The full batting card on seven looks horrendous.


#750

Can someone post a cap from Prime7 HDchannel?


#751

The last and break had the score in the top left corner. Great idea.


#752


#753

Keeping the score on during the ads is great. I’d like them to do it like America and break out a small screen showing the ground while they are in ads or split it.

And that full batting scorecard graphic is hideous.


#754

Wasn’t half the issue the fact 10 didn’t want the test matches? They only wanted the One Day, T20 and Big Bash.

Have to admit the Foxtel coverage is pretty good if anyone has it.


#755


#756

Ten put in a bid for everything after Nine pulled out, JLT, Shield, tests, big bash, odi…


#757

they might go hard next time it comes again? By Shield is that every match?


#758

They did, but reluctantly, and it wasn’t the fact nine pulled out was it was the fact that CA rejected 9’s offer. I don’t think 10 ever wanted Test match cricket because it has been reported time and time again that there is no money to make from broadcasting test match cricket.


#759

Not sure, I’d imagine just the final, however the rights might buy every match bit weather they actually get broadcast is another matter.


#760


#761

So it’s begun. MKR being flogged to death. Might drive away many of the audience, not just for cricket but also for MKR as I can’t imagine those who watch MKR are the same ones who watch cricket.


#762

Didn’t seem to hurt 9 with Married at First Sight which isn’t exactly the same audience either.


#763

Did anyone see the virtual graphic? It had the logo shadows around the wrong way (Australia had the India logo shadow and vice versa)


#764

The opener for Seven’s test cricket coverage.


#765

Channel change advice and other stuff


#766

Foxtel’s coverage looks A grade, Seven’s looks D grade.
