  1. Yep thank go for Foxtel, just got HD and it is great. Also why can’t the FTAs main channel be in HD, and then put other programing on the other subchannels. Wouldn’t it make more sense.

  2. I don’t watch this.But it’s another example of the Primary FTA channels must screen in HD.It’s a joke.What about Channels 71&72 guys those channels are just sitting their.Do what SBS has done with Channel 30 and convert them over to HD The Tennis would have been a improvement as well if they did something about it.Australia is way behind compared to the rest of the world when it comes to this technology.At least i can view HD on my Foxtel

  3. +1 for the lack of coverage on 7mate. They’ve being promoting “live and hd” all season, only to show the final in SD. Bad move Seven.

    When Ten showed the previous few Superbowls, it was live and HD on One, and shown with timezone delays (live Syd/Mel) on Ten. Seven should do the same.

  4. It is also on ESPN for those who want to watch it in HD. Crazy that seven has been showing it in HD on 7 Mate throughout the year and the biggest game of the year they put on Seven in grainy SD. #noidea
