Looks very mediocre to me. Overhead cam worse than the other shots.

Watching WFTX Ft Myers, Comcast clear QAM, on a 42" 720p display.

I too hate the Championship graphic bug. The damn thing is even there during replays!

maybe they'll make the super bowl bug even bigger!

I must say it looks pretty darn good to me on D* WNYW NYC.

I was just going to post the same comment, it seems to have gotten worse as the game goes on, it's basically an average looking FOX NFL broadcast now. I thought it fairly good earlier, but maybe not. The audio is very engaging though.

now they're messing up the ref talking and getting the wrong down

Love the F bombs being dropped in the right rear all game long

Watching on a Sammy 40" OTA on WFLD-DT Chicago 32.1. Obviously, you're going to struggle with the spotty sunshine on the field. But otherwise, it looks good here!

If we're lucky, they'll bring back something like the animated snow plow that drives on and off the screen after every play!

Comcast Seattle. Best looking FOX broadcast I remember.
albeit that's not saying much but at least it's solid and as sharp as can be expected.

Never. All FOX stations use 720p.

For the game, though, it has dropped to 480i. Very odd.

I'd bet you somehow changed the output setting on your OTA receiver.

Maybe they'll put a blue streak behind the guy with the ball the way they did the puck when they covered hockey haha.

I would be interested to know if anyone from fox ever reads these boards. It boggles my mind how crap their coverage is compared to basically every other instance of sports coverage I have ever seen, ever. It is pathetic, and never improves. Even CFL games, hell even Canadian college football games on my local station are better produced than this

I simply have an aerial antenna going straight into my tv (Samsung TC-P54V10). I have not changed any settings on the tv, and the other HD channels are still showing up as 1080i as always. Only Fox (channel 12.2 in my area) has fallen back to 480i. My tv is still reporting signal strength as 85% on that channel, which is about where it always sits. The other HD channels are also reporting about 85%, as always.

It's possible you are correct and it used to be 720p, but I would've sworn all of my local OTA HD channels were 1080i. We watch very little broadcast tv at my house, so it's been a while since I've turned on Fox. I'll keep an eye on it in the future when it (hopefully) switches back to HD. I'll take either resolution, regardless. Any HD is better than 480i! Is it possible my local transmitting station is dropping it down to 480i for some reason? I would even begin to know who to call to ask about what's going on.

It has been reported that Charter in Minn and Mich has been about for about the last 45 min.

Looks like we got a football game. :-)

When FOX is transmitted as a subchannel, it is broadcast as a 480i (or 480p) Widescreen signal. There's not enough bandwidth in any single RF channel to properly broadcast 2 hd streams. Now I know stations out there are trying to broadcast 2 hd channels, but every FOX I've seen as a subchannel has been 480, while the main network affiliation on the .1 stays at full HD.

have they ever watched a game on one of the other networks? I just literally don't understand how they turn out such a crap product every week. It boggles my mind. There is no excuse for that in this day and age

It's your affiliate. It's not everywhere.

False. FOX is by consensus, consistently the worst, weakest and poorest produced NFL broadcaster.

These are not mutually exclusive propositions. Fox probably is the weakest of the broadcasters (though I'd go with ESPN for worst football overall), but if you thought there was something terrible about today's presentation, then it was your affiliate. Fox's A-team consistently puts together a good broadcast.

I agree. Fox game today looked good via FiosNYC. This game on CBS looks the same today as it has all year-- which is not as great as it used to look.

False, it's the NFL network with their formatted for 4:3 video, graphics and DD 2.0.

Don't forget the awful commentary.

WNYW via Cablevision looked fine. The shadows were hard on the eyes on the first half. Not looking forward to Fox's Superbowl logo on the screen all game. It's a tease with Fox. They give the viewers the least obtrusive scoreboard bug and then put that logo that is the same size on the other side of the screen. Very disappointing. If they want to have it up so badly why can't they make it transparent.

Agree, CBS quality just hasn't been that great lately, elevated sideline cameras look awful.

KCOY briefly experimented with carrying both CBS and Fox in 720p, but reverted to the old setup of CBS in 1080i and Fox in 480i widescreen due to apparent PQ issues.

Wow, Cutler is getting obliterated on Twitter and in the media.
