I will be watching it, even if its in SD, but I'd wish you would start running them on Hdnet too. I know the rights handicap you but you were able to get the kentucky derby past NBC... I would really like to watch the mavs in HD. I hate the sd version and dallas is a little too far for me to drive. If anybody can do it Mr. Cuban can
Since KTXA-DT is located a couple of streets away from me (on Bridge Street in Ft. Worth - Interstate 30) -- I called over to UPN-21's engineering department and spoke to a "Randy." I asked him to confirm that tonight's local broadcast would be in HDTV. I was told that it was not originally scheduled to be in high definition, but Mr. Cuban is presenting it in HDTV for his local supporters. Must be nice to have HD production trucks and be able to do that. I guess he (Mark) is footing the bill.
Forgot to say that "Randy" said the local HDTV telecast would be on KXTA UPN 21.1 which is the same as digital Channel 18. If you tune to just Channel 21, it will not be in HDTV. You must go to 21.1 or 18 (depending upon how your channel alignment is set up.)
Wish it was on HDNet like earlier in the year when they showed the Mavs and Lakers in HD. It looked awesome and made me never want to watch another B-Ball game in SD but.....thats the only way it is available.
Great news, over at the Dallas Home Theater Group Bill said that it had just got approved by the NBA. Do they really have control over that (it being in HD) or did it have to do with TNN and sharing cameras?
I don't know whether people in Dallas are better behaved or just lacked energy, but a single Kings player was able to shout out all 26,000?
When it comes to HDTV, Mark knows he needs vocal audience. How about moving some of your HD facilities to Sacramento? We made the only Sinclair affiliate station in the nation to go HDTV, we can also get your HDNet up everywhere.
