Too bad that you can't see the 56-60 Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2 video that is being sent to foreign countries via the NFL World Feed. The CBS feed to the affiliates, while MPEG-2 4:2:2 video, it is only about half the bitrate. Of course, by the time it gets sent out over the CBS affiliate transmitters, it is only 12-15 Mbps 4:2:0 video. Many foreign countries will be providing a better bitrate than we have in the states, because they are using H.264 at a bitrate that is at least twice what we have here.
Before anyone thinks that I am able to see the world feed, I can't, as it is encrypted. I can still tune it in and see what the bitrates are.
There's a 27 Mbps 4:2:0 H.264/MPEG4 feed out there unencrypted on Ku. That's about equivalent to 54 Mbps MPEG2 and plenty to be sharp enough to cut my eyes and make the picture on CBS look awful, even though my local station is an O&O that does not have any subchannels.
Video for the halftime show looks like it's not live at 24p or 30p and the strobe lights ruin it.
Very bad echo on her audio.
I don't like the video processing at all. Just show it in 29.97 fps as regular live video.
NFL can produce something better then this.
