Is it my local FOX station or does the game look like its being streamed in low quality for anyone? :lol: The close-up shots on the field look good, but the far away shots look horrible! Anyone else?

On DirecTV it's pretty grainy, but is much better OTA for me.

I don't follow college football very closely, but this must be a second or third string TV crew. The announcers are high school quality, and they even missed the entire opening kickoff.

It's like that for me, too. Watching my local Fox on DirecTV and OTA looks the same. Far away shots look very soft whole close ups look fine. It's like this often with Fox though so it's nothing new.

Sometimes these "HD games" actually use a mix of SD and HD cameras around the stadium.

I'm seeing a mix of very good and marginal video quality, depending on which camera angle is being presented.

They really should not promote a program in HD if they use that much SD camera equipment onsite.

I love watching games that Gus Johnson calls....guy gets so excited it can almost make a mediocre play super exciting! :lol:

Yeah, but IMO NFL looks great on Fox, I wonder why they couldn't get it right for this game...oh well
