Clearly, some of the regional affiliates are doing a better job of broadcasting GEM than in my area (Cairns).

Maybe not. Like they would pay any attention to that.

Given this weekends HD efforts from 9, will there be a change of heart when it comes to the summer of cricket??

both the NRL and the RWC semi finals looked pretty darn decent on Gem here...would be one very happy camper if we could get the cricket live in HD. (not holding my breath though).

Maybe we should all send emails to 9 saying how wonderful it is to watch live sport in HD! (as opposed to the usual Luddites that complain when the same thing is on two channels at once and why can't they watch that Errol Flynn movie from 1947...) :rolleyes:

Certainly wasn't perfect here by any stretch...and nothing compared to seeing it in HD on Fox sports...but a heap better than how it looks watching on nine/win SD.

Agree, better than SD, but it could've been even better.

Fox sports is now also down on resolution due to increased compression (read Davmels post under Foxtel).

Bugger, I just saw this thread and watched it on 9... I used to check 90 all the time but gave up.

Aw well, I'll know for next time.

Let's hope some of the cricket is HD this year.

A number of us called and wrote last year complaining when the sport was not shown in HD.

I have just called channel nine to thank/congratulate them for returning some sport to a HD channel. I suggest that everyone here who wrote or called last year now do the opposite this year and give credit where credit is due. If enough people call and say they are happy with a change they may just reconsider their position on the matter.

Edit: Here are the contact details;

By phone:

Channel Nine Sydney (02) 9906-9999

Channel Nine Melbourne (03) 9420-3111

Channel Nine Brisbane (07) 3214-9999

Channel Nine Adelaide (08) 8267 0111

Channel Nine Perth (08) 9449 9999

or by writing to:

NSW Viewers: PO Box 27 Willoughby, NSW 2068

Vic Viewers: PO Box 100 Richmond, Vic 3121

QLD Viewers: PO Box 72 Brisbane, QLD 4001

Despite originally planning for it, Nine have decided to take the HD broadcasts back. This Sunday's Rugby World Cup final will not be simulcast on GEM with Antiques Roadshow and As Time Goes By taking their place. So no more HD...

One can expect it was always going to be in SD if Australia were not in the final, its between NZ & France they assume it won't rate in numbers
