Why Can’t I Get the Celtics in HD?
I wonder why the NBA and my cable company (Comcast) can’t broadcast Celtics games in High Definition? Every Red Sox game is broadcast in HD, every Patriots game is broadcast in HD, any game on TNT, ESPN or ESPN2 is broadcast in HD… yet the NBA and Comcast can’t figure out how to do this for the Celtics fans in Boston. Give me a break!
Yesterday, the Celtics played the Cavs and the game was broadcast on NBATV in HD, except Boston where it was blacked out. How stupid is this? I have the NBA League Pass and I live in Boston and this game was filmed and broadcast in High Definition yet only standard definition was available in the Boston area. Here is a screenshot I pulled from the standard def broadcast:
Whether its Comcast, the Celtics, the NBA, Comcast Sports New England or whoever… somebody needs to step up and ensure that Boston fans get all these games in HD. Don’t the Celtics realize how much competition there is for the sports teams in Boston? The Patriots and Sox are insanely popular so the Celtics need to do more to attract the average fan. And keep their biggest fans happy!
