To the best of my knowledge, this will be the first MLB playoff game ever broadcast in North America in HDTV, and it ought to be a good one.

It's up in HDTV & DD 5.1.

Over the free airwaves in Detroit, via WJBK-DT.

All further D* related comments belong in the FOX not on DirecTV topic.

What is the point of Fox implying Nomar is the goat. That was very low from Fox.

I agree, that was pretty lame. Too bad, after the funny star wars intro. Just showed shots of A-Rod and Jeter at the game in HD. Joe Buck in HD as well! Looks good OTA, who needs D*?

KIDDING!

I haven't kept up, but is this game supposed to be in HD as opposed to the sub-par "Fox Widescreen" upconvert we've been getting in the playoffs thus far? Because those first few shots inside the stadium sure looked about the same as all the other games we've seen so far.

Philly 29-1 OTA up DD 5.1 720P

I for 1 am happy that D* didnt bring up another "Local" in HD to water down my Premium HD channels.

Start complaining to your local affiliates.

BTW picture quality is awesome...

First Star Wars then the theme from the Odd Couple. I hope the game doesn't end up is goofy as the pre-game themes.
harrier's Avatar harrier 06:20 PM 10-12-2004
no artifacts on the pinstripes!! :) :)
macd23's Avatar macd23 06:20 PM 10-12-2004

WNYW-DT NYC Cablevision.
Game is in HD and audio is DD 5.1.

PQ is 100% better then the widescreen broadcasts but the compression is still visible.

They need to get rid of the advertising behind homeplate.

The goat is the symbol of the Cubs curse, and since Nomar was a Red Sox, and is now a Cub, maybe the curse of the bambino went with him, too.

Lost picture, now getting just stills on Fox affiliate in Boston. Anyone else?

we've got 5.1 and what looks to be better than ED, but soft for HD here from Raleigh/Durham's WRAZ FoX 50, but then again, they're multicasting and I'm on a 1080i set.

Maybe I'm being anal, but ESPNHD baseball looks much better to me.

I'll give it some time to wear on me..... :cool:

Also, no digital bug in the lower righthand corner.... dont know if this means anything or not.
