Ashes in HD in Newcastle?
« on: November 25, 2010, 06:25:50 PM »
Anyone know how I can get the Ashes in HD in Newcastle? NBN (ch8) is SD and the normal ch80 HD equiv is called GEM and just has rubbish on it.

Does Fox have the ashes?  you can probably fly to the UK and watch it in HD there.

IIRC Nine was originally going to simulcast the Ashes in HD on GEM and in SD on Nine/WIN. They changed their minds a couple of weeks out from the start of the Ashes. It's not just Newcastle that's not getting the Ashes on HD. I don't think anyone is.

Nine originally were showing Rugby League games simulcast in Gem HD and Nine SD but they dropped the HD transmissions at the end of the recently completed season. E.g. in Sep the Titans prelim final game at Suncorp (where they normally have HD equipment), was only shown in SD. ICE had missed that change and many people ended up recording some wildlife documentary instead. Rather unfortunate policy change by Nine because the HD picture is much better.
