Theres two things Im worried about. Global coming back late from their commercials into the coverage (Do you really think Global will stick to the limits that CBS will?) and two things that sort of belong together. The stupid Global BUG fading in and out in the corner, and the actual HD picture quality. Weve seen before Global screw it up and Rogers just let it go. (NFC playoffs)

Also wonder if the Primus "blimp" will make an appearance.

It's interesting that you mention the "bug".

If memory serves, there was no CBS bug on last year's Masters broadcast. Again, this would have been something dictated by Augusta National.

I'll have to remember to look for it this year.

According to the guide on my PVR it's on TSN HD today starting at 4PM I believe.

Its definitely in HD on TSNHD Thursday and Friday. It may also be on your local CBS HD feed. The best way to find that out is to tune in at 4:00 today and tomorrow.

Global would have acquired their Cdn broadcast rights directly from Augusta National and would be under the same limitations in terms of commercial time - breach them and Augusta National would pull the rights faster than Tiger Woods swing speed. In terms of technical problems if they simsub, if BEV (for example) does what they did for the Superbowl, you'll have the option of watching either CBS HD feed on the weekend. As it turns out, Global actually had the cleanest video HD feed of this year's Superbowl anyway, although IIRC, it was probably attributable to the fact that they were broadcasting the "raw feed" directly from the stadium, rather than re-broadcasting the CBS feed.

Also worth noting, there are no network bugs on the broadcast.

I did a quick comparison between CBS and Global.

1. Audio is definitely messed up on Global.
2. No network bugs on either (thanks ANGC).
3. Picture looks to be the same.

No Global simsubs on CBS - amazing quality being shown on CBS directly without interruptions.

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!

Just a heads up about the USOpen.

According to http://www.usopen.com/webcast/index.html there will be streaming of several USOpen feeds, etc.

Unfortunately only available to USA. (same stupid IP based detection the Masters used perhaps?)

Now, us canadians got screwed by the weekend NON coverage of Amen corner live at the masters (we got the Thurs/Fri webcast, but not the weekend, thank you Canwest for screwing it up).

I encourage people to email TSN to see if they will be rebranding the webfeed and make it available to us canucks.

Hopefully TSN will make the broadband content available. But you can't blame TSN for the lack of weekend Amen Corner Live coverage for the Masters since they didn't own the weekend rights - CanWest Global did.

But there is less need for it in the US Open as the coverage on the main network is so much more comprehensive. NBC, and presumably TSN but who cares since it is on NBC, will be broadcasting from 1-7 on both Saturday and Sunday.
