Why don't the players just look up at that big TV screen to see the other peoples cards?

Are they forbidden from looking at that TV?

Can they not see that TV?

The TVs up high for the crowd show the Flop, Turn and River so they can see them. They don't show the hole cards. That stuff is added later with production.

Along with the annoucning, judging by what they say and how set up it is, they only commentate on the hands being shown post production.
