Leading up to this summer channel 7 were continuing to spruik how good their cricket coverage would be across all formats of the game. I'm pretty sure I heard Bruce say somewhere "every ball".

So, Bruce, how come todays ODI with India ain't on free to air?....also last nights big bash.

Seems a tad hit and miss to me. Or have I missed something?

 

 

Disclosure. I've searched the TV guide this morning, cannot see it on 7two, 7 mate or 7

18.4 by the end of 2019  - 3.6 to go

I wouldn't say all games. We've had plenty of big bash games.

I know if channel 9 still had the rights we would be watching the ODI today.

Having watched cricket on fox before christmas then being away at the outlaws for boxing day and watching on 7 i was like WTF...ch 7's coverage is very poor compared to fox.  Yes ch9 was getting a bit old and in need of a refresh but ch 7's seems to spent all its budget on punter and the rights it has.

now lets not get caught up on all the hype with foxtel,  ch7 and ch9 etc

 

ch9 was a bit old in the tooth and ch9 realised that and  couldnt take on both cricket and the tennis and only filmed their live coverage in hd only

 

ch7 hd quality is not the greatest specially if you are running a 4k tv

 

now this  is where it gets interesting

 

foxtel has cricket in hd on channel 501 but all the international games  tests etc are film on 4k but unfortunately you will not benifit the 4k  at 2180 resolution as  all 501 can do is run it hd and if you want to watch it on 4k you need channel 444 and have a compatible tv that can run hdmi 2.0 and hdcp 2.2

 

big bash on fox 501 is usually taken from ch 7 feed and on channel 444 its coverage is upscaled to 4k from the ch7 feed  when there is a international game on  and will say 4k live beta..

 

only  foxtel at this stage does live 4k filming in Australia where as the fta are only have cameras that only produce hd @1080p or 1080i.

 

far as the commentry goes ya can never beat the richie benuad years,  but i feel foxtel has a better commentery team over ch 7...

 

 

its interesting watching the difference from ch 444 ch 501 and ch 7 throughout  the test matches and 1 day series


I AM ALWAYS FORCED TO DO SH1T I'M NOT QUALIFIED FOR. LIKE BEING NICE TO BLOODY ID1OTS :P :D

Apart from confusing the sh#t out of me and I'm sure it all makes sense, but the bottom line is there's a hell of a lot of people who don't have/can't afford foxtel.

When Bruce was telling me about every ball live on 7, he meant for the Test matches only. They were a bit sneaky like that because it certainly implied every ball of every match.

After six tests and numerous Big Bash games I'm still trying to decipher how that James Brayshaw idiot gets a run.

Surely there are better credentialed cricketers who aren't so grating.
