Yeah, there's no reason why it couldn't be aired the day of the competition. The biggest problem with this is that they'd have to nail down a date. They have the 6 day window so they can go on the day with the best bluebird skies, lowest avalanche danger, etc.

But they could have a 6 day window ending on a Saturday, and air it on Sunday. Record it as if it were real time and just air it...

I watched a man jump from the edge of space for fuck sake. I'm sure Red Bull could figure out a live feed

Well I am not saying its impossible, just not simple. There is also no power lines up there its all diesel generators, etc. I am just assuming the equipment cost for a live feed would be kind of nuts. What is even more retarded is as a bird flies this happens less than 13km from my house and I can't go watch it....lol

Bah it's all satellite uplinks to the studio then they process it and feed it back out, they should be able to do it from almost anywhere! I think the real hassle is the event is trying to fit into the Sunday "sporting event" timeslot, but they can't do that with a 6 day window...

Are you guys kidding? It's a Brain Farm production, they need a month just to render all the fancy slo-mo shots of the helicopters, no way those guys would do a live feed of anything they produce.

satellite uplink is very, VERY expensive. It's a much cheaper alternative to deliver a tape to network via Fed Ex or courrier etc. HD Television is still produced on tape based masters that are delivered to net(HDSR or HDCAM) That way it also enables them to do post work on it. Yes I am aware that many sports are broadcast live but those have the advertising revenue to support it.


Their air slot is what? 90 minutes Three hours max? Considering this is an all day event that's a lot of editing work that needs to be done to cut the show down to it's alloted air time. IT's not like a football game that's allowed to run into the next program.

Also, commercial breaks are very much dictated by the network so they need to time those as well. Not to mention add in the cool bumpers "we'll be right back" etc...

live television has a lot of potential for complications and is very expensive!!!
