They switched over to the HD feed here in Atlanta about ten minutes into the broadcast. I don't want to sound ungrateful for the HDTV, but NBC needs to learn how to cover these events. This isn't wrestling. Forget Costas and concentrating on controversy. Forget those long crowd shots. Just show us the horses, their trainers, the jockeys. Where's the background footage? Boy, do I miss ABC right now.
I called WNCN in Raleigh and the engineering staff acted like they had never heard of HDTV. They certainly did not know about the Preakness and did not turn it on even when I explained the arrangement with HD Net and the fact that they did it 2 weeks ago for the Derby.
