Was Sunday's Reds Game In HDTV?
Several of you have asked why Sunday's Reds-Pirates game from Pittsburgh was not in HDTV, as scheduled by Fox Sports Net Ohio, and if it was a Time Warner problem.
So here's the answer to the question from Steve Pawlowski, FSNO spokesman in Cleveland -- though I'm not sure I understand it. (Maybe one of the TV engineers who read this blog can explain it to us):
Pawlowski says: "Here's the deal... We DID do the game in HD, however, due to a technical problem, it was broadcast in 4:3 ratio instead of 16:9."
FSNO's next HDTV game is 1:10 p.m. Saturday, Reds-Brewers at GABP. The HD games are noted on the Reds.com schedule at http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/schedule/index.jsp?c_id=cin
