PAX SUCKS!!!

my only complaint about PAX is that they dont carry marlins on deck or any type of postgame show. also there was that problem in the 1st inning, but that was fixed

 

all in all, im happy with PAX, but it would be nice if the marlins had 150 games on cable

PAX has no pregame show because FSN doesn't want to spend the money to buy the extra time on PAX and pay Craig for the overtime. It costs money to do the pregame show. WAMI used to produce one (but they also produced their own telecasts) and cancelled it.

 

Craig couldn't do it anyway because of conflicts with the Panthers.

 

Having no games on PAX is impossible as long as the Marlins share a channel with the Devil Rays. There has been some speculation that in a couple of years, if the ballpark is built, the Marlins could do what the Royals have done. They would go to cable and satellite companies, create a new channel, probably sign the Panthers or UM to this channel, and create Marlins TV.

 

The Marlins probably will never return to Sunshine because they will not air more than 50 games.

I assume everyone else had the same problem as me at the beginning of the game, slipping in and out of coverage.

i didn't notice anything... are you talking about reception maybe? i was watchin on cable... the only problem i know of came in the 1st when PAX lost their signale for a batter or two

 

 

in other words, there wasnt a problem

We lost signal for 1.5 batters in Coral Springs on PAX Cable.

 

Then they didn't break away during commercial and we got to watch the action on the field during the break - that was very cool to see.

 

All in all, I think PAX is doing a very unprofessional job so far. I am just glad the majority of our games are on FSN.

I had the same exact problem and wasnt a happy camper. It was pretty funny how for the 1st couple innings we didnt have to see any commercials, my uncle said we could just pretend we were at the game.

Interesting, because I didn't have any of the problems here in Palm Beach....but was watching Pax 69.

Guys, the same crew does both FSN and PAX games.

 

PAX may have had trouble with it's ad insert in Miramar. NBC6 has gone off the air before when it crashes. NBC6, Telemundo 51, and PAX 35 all use this digital ad insert computer and it does crash sometimes. Overall, PAX presents a good product with it's signals and ability to sell out ads for the Marlins.

I remember when UPN33 and WAMI did telecasts. You guys would turn off the TV with the blunders they made. Once UPN33 forgot to turn on the delay and some words get out. WAMI once aired a naked fan running on the field, again without delay, and got fined. One time UPN33's transmitter was struck by lightning (the tower is right next to PPS) and the cameras at the ballpark caught the sparks (shown on the news later) and the game went off the air and was delayed.
