So it is not infact a proper simulcast as instead of mirroring ABC's pre game show (studio pieces, pre game banter) they are instead taking LIVE FOOTAGE FROM THE ARENA with no voice overs. It's been 10 minutes of Heat and Thunder players warming up.

No Pre-game intro, no commercials. The broadcast started with a FROZEN image of the Ford Center with the ESPN graphics on the bottom and that lasted like 3 minutes and the last 7 has been the aforementioned pre game player warm ups. weird.

Apparently there using an international feed because now as ABC'S went to break, you can hear Mike Tirico and Hubbie Brown going over INFORMATION.

12:52: Someone finally realized what was going on and CUT TO COMMERCIAL. hmm.

12:53: Correction. On Rogers, they ended the CHCH simsub of both ABC EAST/WEST.

12:55: CHCH now finally correctly simsubbing the ABC feed.

1:00: Weird. On Rogers, ABC East started to mirror CHCH for like 3 minutes but at 1:00 exactly the simsub ended. AS I WRITE this, CHCH'S feed has again hijacked ABC east.

did you watch the xmas simsubs as well?

CHCH's bug was all over the place, they would animate it in, then erase it, then redo it, then erase it again, then move it to another corner, erase it, etcetc, went on for a LONG time. It was almost they were trying to completely cover the ABC bug but couldnt figure out how to do it, but they sure tried their damndest.

also very annoying bug, can cover the shotclock in certain circumstances.

Also no 5.1 on CHCH's nba simsub. Glad I got the antenna up for this kind of crap.
