    USA - Brazil
    set 1
    set 2
    set 3


    Thank you Justyna. This is a match I was really hoping would be posted. Although the matches will shown in the US in a two week delay, I do not have HD TV, the HD Channel (extra fee) or an HD DVR. It was going to cost me $600 US at a MINIMUM to upgrade. I really want to wait to purchase a better and larger HD TV than the mimimum I was considering. At least now, I will get to view this match and perhaps a few more.


    Keep up the good work! :trophy:

    Oohh. Does this mean that these videos are originally shown in HD? Does anybody have the capability to record and share the HD files? I'd even pay somebody to send me DVDs or something!


    (In other news, I can record HD, but there's no volleyball shown here until the olympics next year!)

    NEW YORK (Nov. 1, 2007) - NBC Sports will present taped coverage of the U.S. Men's and Women's National Volleyball teams in the 2007 FIVB World Cup for the first time ever on Universal HD.

    The FIVB World Cup is a 12-team event with a round-robin playing format of 11 matches in 15 days. Over the next month, UniHD will provide coverage of both round-robin tournaments from eight different cities across Japan. The women’s competition begins Nov. 2 with the U.S. opening against Peru and the match will air on Nov. 12. The men’s competition starts Nov. 18 as the Americans face top-ranked Brazil, which will air on Nov. 28. “Best of” matches are slated on both the men’s and women’s broadcast schedules to show the best U.S. matches of the tournament. A complete schedule can be found at the end of this release.


    “NBC’s broadcasts on Universal HD will provide exciting exposures for our national teams,” USA Volleyball Chief Executive Officer Doug Beal said. “We are delighted with NBC for selecting the World Cup to showcase volleyball. Hopefully, it will lead to additional television exposure of our sport.”


    The FIVB World Cup is held every four years in the year preceding the Summer Olympics and is the first of three qualifying steps in indoor volleyball for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.


    Universal HD, an NBC Universal Cable network, launched in fourth quarter 2004, is currently available in systems reaching more than 55 million homes in 100% 1080i HD, 24/7. Universal HD is carried on DirecTV (Channel 74), Dish TV (Channel 9427), Echostar, Comcast, TimeWarner, NCTC, Cox, Charter, Cablevision, Mediacom, cable one, Insight, Verizon, ATT/SBC and some independent outlets.


    Paul Sunderland will handle the play-by-play for the matches, while Kevin Barnett will carry out the color commentary for the tournament. Sunderland earned a gold medal while playing on the 1984 U.S. Olympic Team, while Barnett is a two-time Olympian who played for Team USA at Sydney in 2000 and Athens in 2004.


    During this tournament, the U.S. Women's National Team looks to improve upon its 2003 World Cup bronze-medal finish. Team USA has eight Olympians on the 2007 FIVB World Cup roster including veteran players Tayyiba Haneef-Park (Laguna Hills, Calif.) and Danielle Scott-Arruda (Baton Rouge, La.). The roster was bolstered by the return of Logan Tom (Salt Lake City, Utah) and Stacy Sykora (Burleson, Texas), both two-time Olympians, after nearly three year's absence from the squad. The U.S. Women’s National Team Press Kit offers additional information on the squad.


    The U.S. Men's National Team is ranked fifth in the world and has medaled in every tournament it has competed in this year. It is coming off of gold-medal performances at both the NORCECA Men's Continental Championship and the Americas’ Cup. The U.S. Men’s Team has medal in every tournament it has entered this season, including a third-place showing at the FIVB World League. Lloy Ball (Woodburn, Ind.), named most valuable player at the NORCECA Men's Continental Championship, returned to the team after a two-year absence and will look to compete in his fourth Olympics, while the team’s emotional leader Ryan Millar (Palmdale, Calif.) hopes to qualify for his third Olympics.


    “Both teams have enjoyed great years and we look forward to their drives for Olympic berths with this important qualifying event,” Beal said.
