Global hasn't been simsubbing of late on the HD channels on Rogers, which is great. Shows like Prison Break and 24 are clean from FOX, as well as shows from other US networks. Hopefully this continues. Too bad this wasn't the case during this year's NFL playoffs.
The Masters broadcasts are strictly controlled by Augusta. You see no CBS logo, no CBS promotional commercials for others shows during the breaks, the CBS graphics are not used - instead the standard Masters graphics are, and only when players are interviewed and the leaderboard is shown is the CBS logo ever shown. The promo at the end of the telecast did have the usual CBS graphics indicating when the coverage is tomorrow, but that was the only promo basically.
But the picture and audio was perfect without Global!
And hopefully for the US Open, NBC uses all HD cameras as well!
