I was pleasantly surprised when I got home to find that Wimbledon was being broadcast in High Definition on BBC HD. There was only the choice of one match, but at least it was someone of the quality of Federer disposing of first round fodder.
Sadly, now that the rain has come, they’re showing last year’s final in standard definition, but I’m looking forward to watching more quality tennis in HD over the next couple of weeks.
It’s the occasional treat like this from the BBC that almost makes the license fee worth the money. Almost.
