I'm pretty sure that the coverage is produced by the ABC, as they are the only station in Perth with OB vans at all. Ten/ONE usually send a truck from over east for the AFL, so that would explain why those games are in HD. AFAIK, the whole thing is produced by ABC staff, so ONE use the ABC's cameramen, cameras and other equipment. The only difference is the men in front of the camera and behind the mic. Doesn't explain why the graphics are crap, even the ABC themselves did a better job, even though they barely changed! ONE control when it goes to air, and that's it as far as I'm aware.
I should point out that pretty much everybody uses the ABC's OB trucks in Perth, and that they have an HD truck in operation (I think, Fox Sports have shown quite a bit of HD material from Perth lately, and I'm going by a contact of mine).
Doesn't explain how ONE or TEN have simply ignored the day sessions, that has really peeved me off. I mean, NFL over live tennis? It may've been a big game, but it was already on Foxtel, and they could've easily replayed it later on in the day.
Tennis and FTA television just don't get along it seems...
