Marc, do you know what's been happening with CBC-HD and HNIC? I'm on Rogers-Ottawa, and last year CBC-HD *always* showed the Leafs game, while CBC-SD (cable 8) showed the Sens game. It seems that this year this has changed -- even if the Guide says Leafs, CBC-HD has been showing Sens games.
That said, the quality is oftne non-HD. Case in point, last Saturday's game was just horrible from a PQ point of view. It was definitely not HD. I know that CBC has two high-def setups: one for (primarily) Leafs games and the second unit they got near the end of last season, I believe, that is used (again, primarily) for the late game from out-West. Nevertheless, som Ottawa games (even when not involving the Leafs) were in high-definition.
So I guess the question is -- does teh CBC rely on a high-def feed from someone else (and add their own announcers' voice over) or what?
