Looking at Sky guide for next Saturday night, Match Of The Day is NOT being shown in HD!

On BBCHD the beeb are show a double bill of 'Later with Jools Holland'.

Why are the BBC not showing MOTD in HD when all the Premiership games are recorded in HD? And after a successful World Cup in HD.

Hope Football First are showing matches in HD, but i doubt it, they may show the main match at 8.30pm, and SD for all the 'red button' matches.

And who said that ALL Prem games will be recorded in HD?

Only games shown on $ky will be in HD, the rest will be SD for some time yet.

When has BBCHD ever been a permanent channel? It's still only a trial as far as I can remember....

Yes, don't forget that the HD filming is done by Sky, and they will only have the equipment to cover a limited number of games in HD. Even then, there is no guarantee that they will even give the BBC permission to show the highlights in HD.

I would be extremely surprised if Sky allowed the beeb to broadcast the football in HD, no matter how it was recorded.

Football is the big selling point Sky have for the HD service - why would they be interested in allowing another broadcaster to air it for free?

As someone else said, not all football is recorded in HD as far as I know, and certainly not by the Beeb. Sky record most of it and the chances are that they won't offer HD to the BBC.

I'm more pleased to see Jools in HD than Match of the Day anyway!

My understanding is ALL prem games are recorded in HD and the OB units are a mixture of BBC and Sky units.

I am also disappointed that MOTD will be in SD and had hoped that after the HD World Cup success they would have carried it onto the Prem.

I'm guessing the reason is technical (8 HD game feeds edited within 5 hours compared to 3 games at the world cup) with maybe a bit of Sky politics.

Hope they get it sorted if/when BBCHD comes out of the trial.
