2009 Miss USA in HD on NBC, again.  

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Despite being in Las Vegas, and despite being in glorious HD for the first time last year, NBC is not broadcasting the 2009 Miss USA in HD this Sunday. For an event that is just begging for HD, anyone have any answers for this?

Very likely: $.

HD is expensive to shoot, produce, transmit and air.

Meanwhile, Miss USA's ratings draw is likely minimal at best, especially up against the first new Desperate Housewives in a month.

Wait, Miss USA 2009 is coming up soon?

(see, that's why it is not HD. If it's going to be on Sunday, it'll probably get about as many viewers as what normally airs on NBC Sunday)

NBC just plain zucks anyway. I gave up watching anything on that channel over a year ago. They can't zucker me into watching their network.

The Miss USA competition will again broadcast in High Definition broadcast technology. All Mobile Video's Celebrity unit will use high-definition cameras, including the model HDW-F900R cameras for capturing opening shots and pre-taped segments.
