I personally did not like the half-time premier league show on Setanta......sanitized!!! Bring back fat Pat at half-time and hear the real comments. As for the Setanta HD picture quality it was like that last week when they initially came on air. They certainly know how to screw what could be a good thing up.Yea Setanta is hard to watch, I don't remember it being that bad in the past.
Manchester City-Tottenham looked great on TSN2 (via ESPN2) this morning, too bad 2/3s of their studio crew is hard to listen to. It was nice to see a game in HD on Sportsnet, and it was even nicer to see Blackpool play so well.
I watched the halftime on Setanta because I wanted to see what it was like (and because Dobson and Forrest are annoying), and I was impressed. The Premier League showed that it is easily the world leader in producing programming for its league and providing it to broadcasters around the world. My only complain is that those new graphics almost look too flashy.
