NRL Grand Final in HD
GEM will play the NRL Grand Final in HD, but not this weekend's Preliminary Final.
GEM will be playing the NRL Grand Final in High Definition on October 3rd.
Pre-match entertainment will begin at 4:30pm AEDT and the game plays at 5pm in Sydney and Melbourne.
It plays an hour earlier in Brisbane, half an hour earlier in Adelaide and thre hours earlier in Perth due to Daylight Saving.
Some readers have noted that NRL is not played in High Definition on GEM this weekend despite Nine’s initial Press Release: “GEM will be a mix of new content, classic comedies, cherished drama series, all-time favorite movies, and all of Nine’s sport coverage in high definition.”
The match will also be aired in 3D on digital channel 40.
