FOX SPORTS OHIO ANNOUNCES 145-GAME CINCINNATI REDS TELEVISION SCHEDULE for 2010 SEASON

CINCINNATI, OHIO – FOX Sports Ohio today announced its 145-game Cincinnati Reds television schedule for 2010. The Reds regular season begins with their home opener on Monday, April 5 at 1pm against division rival St. Louis Cardinals at Great American Ball Park.

"We're excited for a new season of Reds baseball," said Henry Ford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, FOX Sports Ohio. "With the addition of some talented new players during the off-season, both on the field and in the broadcast booth, Reds fans have plenty of reasons to look forward to the upcoming season. FOX Sports Ohio is proud to provide fans unparalleled, state-of-the-art coverage of the Reds all year long."

The network will kick off its coverage of the home opener with Reds Live pre-game show, presented by Ray St. Clair Roofing at 12:30pm. Jim Day, Jeff Piecoro and Brian Giesenschlag will take the field to feature all the Opening Day festivities.

As previously announced, Thom Brennaman will serve as the play by play voice for the majority of Reds game telecasts this season. Cincinnati native and longtime broadcaster Paul Keels will be the play-by-play announcer for the remainder of the Reds schedule. Both broadcasters will team with color analysts Chris Welsh and Jeff Brantley. George Grande will also return to his play-by-play announcing role in September on a limited basis.

FOX Sports Ohio will continue its comprehensive pregame coverage of the Reds all season long with the return of Reds Live, presented by Ray St. Clair Roofing, featuring co-hosts Day and Piecoro and feature reporter Giesenschlag. Reds Live will once again provide fans with commentary, features, and in-depth pregame coverage of the Reds 30 minutes prior to every game telecast. Immediately following the final out of each game, the post-game edition of Reds Live will feature highlights, player interviews and analysis.

Behind-the-scenes on all of FOX Sports Ohio’s Reds productions are producer Christian Roberts; directors Brian Hunterman and Roy Alfers; and Reds Live producer Kent Weaver.

The following schedule does not include high definition (HD) telecasts. The release of the complete Reds schedule including HD is forthcoming.

So, I'll bite -- is there any logical reason why they're willing to do production for 145 games and not shell out for the remaining 17?

Not that I'm complaining (as I can remember the days you had to wait for the occasional game on WLWT locally), but it seems strange to do so many games and randomly not do a handful.

Most of the games they seem to not broadcast are those weekday day games. I guess they figure so much of the audience is at work/busy during the day that it's better to just keep whatever their standard programming is on those days

Wouldn't it make more sense to just say "We're broadcasting all of the Reds games this year, except these 17" or "We're broadcasting all of the Reds games this year, except the day games played on weekdays"?

:dunno:

We pretty much know what the gig is going to be every year by now, so this announcement means nothing. The announcement of the HD games will be something newsworthy, but even with that (and while I'm being cynical :) ), I think we're reaching a point where we should expect every game to be in HD. The technology ain't exactly new or a novelty anymore.

I agree. FSN Cincinnati in SD is definitely one of the worst SD channels there is. Nearly unwatchable on a 50" or larger TV.

I think these games from Arizona are even worse than the SD regular season games on FSN. They are indeed nearly unwatchable. It is difficult to even read the player's names. Nice to know we won't have to talk about FSN's SD quality again for the rest of the year.

I wonder if they use lower-quality cameras (or overall production facilities) for Spring Training games. Still, most SD looks lousy on an HDTV.

One thing's for sure, though. FSN-HD stuff looks great on Directv since it went to MPEG-4. I'm really looking forward to a full season of the Reds in HD.

Tonight's game is not in HD on Directv. I thought every game was supposed to be in HD this season.

:confused:

EDIT: I just noticed on Sun Deck that someone said that they're having trouble with the HD signal. But they went on to say that Dish Network did not even have this game scheduled to be in HD. Directv did not either (channel 661-1 is the HD version of FSN.)

I think, as usual, the Reds screwed up. Last year, there were a few games that were supposed to be in HD but were not. If it was in HD, DirecTV would have had it. I've never known them to screw that up before.

Actually they did, at least on cable it was in HD. It took some time but I saw at least half the game in HD. Don't know how long it was fixed prior to me switching over I wasn't checking it periodically.

Does anyone know...are the Reds games on Extra Innings in HD? Usually they mark the channels that are (and it's usually limited) and they haven't been marking the Reds' channels.

Yeah, on Time Warner the HD was up about half way through.

I watched in HD from the 5th inning on on Time Warner. I was upset they had it wrong at first, but at least they resolved it. I don't think FSN has figured it out yet as they also had video problems on Opening Day.

On Time Warner the HD games on Extra Innings package are pre selected and usually only one or two a night so it would be rare that the Reds are on HD

I have DirecTv extra innings. Last nights game was not in HD. It was supposed to be, but the channel where the Gamemix channel showed it, 744.1, just had a DirecTv logo. It was on in standard def on 744 and on WGN.

that's so lame. i wonder why that is? i do have TW myself. does TW/extra innings just not support this? it just doesn't make mcuh sense to me to not air games in HD if the teams are airing it that way.

The hockey package is that way as well. I'd imagine the same goes for the NBA and MLS. It is an issue of bandwith, though they could easily solve the problem if they jettisoned the all-audio channels and some of the more useless In Demand offerings.

I'm just not sure how this could be. They have up to 999 channels if they wanted to use them. And we all know that we don't get 999 channels. Surely they could make room for this if they wanted.

An HD signal takes a lot more bandwidth than a traditional SD signal. When combined with internet service and digital phone a real problem starts to emerge for cable companies.
