    The pre- and post-game are 4x3, as will be certain shots during the main broadcast (vignettes, replays?). The game will be 16x9.

    hi guys!!

    Im getting 5.1 audio but it is 4x3. I called the on duty engineer and was told they (local affiliate) have the ability to broadcast the HD signal only a 4x3 digital version. WTF, I could have sworen the local affiliate has been broadcasting other material in 16x9 HD.

    Im totally bummed out.

    Bummer. Kansas City has it in 16x9, as well as most of the commercials.
