from BBC Sports
I have just got clarification on this. The reason is that we didn't get
permission to run the BBC HD channel until towards the end of the year.
In those circumstances, we weren't able to commit any spend to HD with
the exception (for various technical and logistical reasons) of the
Olympics. So the early rounds of the FA Cup in 2008 were never planned
for HD coverage, but the semi-final and final are scheduled for HD.
