I'm more a Rugby fan than Football but I just couldn't watch that coverage on a 50inch TV
So I came up with the perfect solution (see attachment)
Watch the rugby at a screen size worthy of the quality and watch the football in glorious HD
I think the footballers did a better job than the rugby players so it was a good choice in the end.
The quality of the HD picture is more a reflection of my lack of photography skills than a reflection of the actual picture.
There's no getting away from their dismal F1 coverage though
Dont know why you want to watch that union rubbish for anyway. Thirty blokes kicking a ball to one another and all that whistle blowing from the ref stopping the flow of play.Aaaaaah yawn yawnnnn zzzzzzz. Better of watching Super League in H.D. propper rugby.
Agreed. For those of you who see no difference between SD and HD this is a fine example and chance to see the difference.
Over the weekend I watched Cricket HD, Football 1st Division games HD, Rugby ITV SD, F1 ITV SD England Game BBC HD. Many of these were on at the sametime so I had to swap between them. Moving from BBC HD England Game to see the Rugby on ITV was shocking. The SD BBC England Game was much much better than that on ITV of the rugby.
Next week we have more F1, some Football HD and more rugby on ITV. Swap between these events and you will see just how bad it can be.
No idea what Sky or ITV are doing to the original HD broadcast of the Rugby but they need to stop it. If they have so much money to win the F1, Rugby WorldCup, Champions League they need to sort out a HD channel ASAP. Most of these are shot around the world, so they can take the original HD signal and use they surely? They would make money, whats up with them.
