They've been using 4K cameras for several years now. Maybe the bit rate was higher last night for some reason (perhaps due to the lack of all the MLB channels?)

Makes total sense. Thanks for the 4K camera confirm, and the posit of higher bit rates. It was the best non-4K picture I have ever seen.

Seems strange that they would be using the 4k camera for years and sending a 720p signal for us all to watch.
Not disputing what you say but it is strange to me.

Fox has actual 4k college football and all their channels are 720p, too. To many, 720p and 1080i are both HD and equivalent. At the end of the day, they basically are ....

Well, think of tvs....If you were to buy a new one would you buy a HD or a 4k?.....I think to stay up on the tech, sure dont hurt them, if anything it improves things over all............And look someone noticed how nice the quality was.....It sure isnt experimental technology in 2018.

The bandwidth for Extra Innings has nothing to do with ESPN. Those are all either remaps of RSNs or repurposed CINEHD channels for the part time feeds, none of which are on the same transponder as ESPN.

This is what's on ESPN's transponder (D14/99ca TPN 23):
1010 - 206 ESPNHD
1020 - 217 TNNSHD
1030 - 245 TNTHD
1040 - 218 GolfHD
1050 - 209 ESPN2HD

right, but it's just a static PID's assignment;
when watching bitrate of each PID online, the picture is very volatile …
you could find my samples made a few years ago (hope a transition to new SW of the site didn't discard my attached pictures from TS Reader program made those days)
