AFL Coverage

Can someone confirm my suspicions that we are getting upscaled SD coverage on ESPN HD? 

 

If it is HD something is  wrong with the transmission chain.

Re: AFL Coverage

Hi KernowChris,

 

Thanks for posting. ESPN is in true HD. If you're having problems can you give us more details?

 

Cheers

 

David

Re: AFL Coverage

I know ESPN the channel is in HD. What I am questioning is whether the source that BT is getting from Australia for this sport is actually produced in HD or as I suspect the source is in SD and is being upscaled to HD either by the Australian broadcaster or BT Sport prior to transmission. 

 

It simply doesn't look up to the usual standard of the channel.

Re: AFL Coverage

Don't watch it very often but on the couple of ocasions  I have what I noticed is.

 

- it appears to be very good quality when the camera is showing a smaller area of the play. 

- when  showing a wide angle long shot of a lot of the field of play the quality is significantly poorer.
