    No it is not. They turned the HD channel into a chick channel showing movies from the 50s and episodes of Friends. Coming up shortly.... "Mary Queen of Shops"

    9 have butchered the cricket coverage in just about every way possible over the years. There's a new low just about every season and it amazes how they can manage to outdo themselves consistently year in, year out.

    The sad thing is that Nine used to be a world leader in coverage of sport. How has it come to this?

    Can't wait for Saturday when Mark Nic. declares excitedly that the news will follow the end of the day's play no matter what time that is, as if that's a special present for us.

    How was Watto in HD, by the way? Or did you switch it off in the end?

    The silver lining presumably being that we don't have to listen to Mark Nicolas anymore.

    I know I'm getting old but it seems people want

    "All Highlights All The Time" due to the number of replays shown. The bits inbetween where the game is actually played must be boring.

    And want to see

    "What's Coming Up Next" the ceaseless talking up of events before they commence by the commentators and the particpants. The audience must crave being in a constant state of anticipation !.

    It doesn't matter what happens because there is always the highlights of what has just happened and the next
    "What's Coming Up Next"


    Well this is about all what live sport on TV is this days

    Frankly I can't bear to watch it for much longer, I already have the sound off, I will turn the picture off one day soon as well.

    Watching cricket will be the local B grade, I least I am able to enjoy it.


    Is there anyone on my lawn !!

    What! Channel 9 is not showing the Ashes???

    Whenever i used to buy a package for Ashes online it was usually streaming in the Channel 9 coverage. Surprised they are not showing it.

    On the other hand the Pakistani Sports channel...Geo Super is telecasting it live and with surprisingly less commercials. Who is telecasting it in Australia
