I've felt for years now that I would prefer to watch NBA games using the so-called '2K camera' perspective (basically seeing one half of the court at a time, always looking at the "backs" of the offensive players as they're coming down the floor to run their offense), rather than the traditional broadcast angle, but I realize that will never become the default angle.
So what I'm wondering is, do you ever think there will come a day where I can be watching on my TV and be able to choose which camera I'm watching the game through at any given moment?
I'd like to think the answer is yes, because TNT already kind of did that with their nba.com feature (I forget what it's called), but that's on the computer, and I want it on my normal TV-watching screen, and I'd like it for every game (TNT, ESPN/ABC, NBATV, and FSN). But TVs are now more and more 'smart TV's that have wifi and overlaying Internet features, so I'd like to think that could be coming, but what do you think, and how do you think it'll actually work?
I think eventually, instead of just sending a continuous stream of one video feed per channel, eventually changing the channel is actually going to be hopping from one (equivalent to a) website to another, where by default you just instantly see, full screen, the default streaming video like traditional TV, but technically it's viewing an interactive website, where you can use your remote to then change the video from camera 1 to camera 2 or audio 1 to audio 2, or picture in picture, or four squares of pictures, that kind of thing. I think that's very do-able, if that's what the networks want to evolve into. Could be pretty cool. In theory, and there's probably legal reasons why it won't happen, but technically it could allow you to watch the ABC game but listen to one of the radio coverages instead.
