Thanks for posting Ken. Maybe someday Fox will move into the 21st Century and go HiDef.

See the HDTV Programming Synopsis. Fox will go to 720p HDTV by the fall 2004 TV season.

Thanks for posting, Ken. I just signed up for Directv HD, and I am unable to receive any terrestrial HD signals in my area (path blocked by a mountain). Do you know if Directv will broadcast the Superbowl somehow (ie. through HD Net or something)? Thanks.

Audiom3,

Your only option for the Super Bowl in HD would be Comcast. (It is not on Comcast's Petaluma system as of right now, but should be added by Friday January 2nd.)

You can get Comcast HD locals, including CBS and the Super Bowl, for about $22 to $24 per month. This is the basic analog service (about $16.50 per month), plus HD box rental (about $6 per month), plus taxes. As for HD channels, this would give you ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS (plus PBS multicast digitals).

Comcast is also running some promotions now, so you can ask about them, especially if you would be a new customer (no Comcast service in the last 90 days?). One promotion is Starz free for 3 months (I think), and Starz HD should be included and should be added to the channel lineup during January.

PM me with any questions. And welcome to the forum.

This is not accurate. Are you forgetting the Canadian DBS providers?

Many AVS members use either ExpressVu or Star Choice to access American network HDTV.

Well, it looks like all I'll be able to see in HD is tomorrow's wild card games on ABC. That's my only OTA at the moment that is broadcasting in any form of HD. My other affiliates, including CBS, are only broadcasting an SD digital signal. I'm bugging the CBS station, but I'm not holding my breath.

EDTV refers to FOX programming that is widescreen 16:9 but isn't HD. It is actually a 480i signal that is line doubled to 480p.

Nope. DirecTV NFL ST is only for regular season Sunday 1 & 4 pm games.

What about OTA using an antenna to pick up the signal? I started getting CBS in HD OTA just a couple days ago so I don't see why I wouldn't get the Super Bowl in HD....unless I'm missing something...anyone?

Yes, I'm strictly OTA 25 miles West of Boston and enjoyed CBS's telecast in High-Def

Ken,

I thought it prudent to mention here the updated status with CBS-HD and DirecTV for the Superbowl - If only to avoid confusion to those casually reading.

Michael.

so sun jan 18th one game starts at 3 then the next game starts at 6:45.

so there could be overlap.

i wonder why the second game wasnt a little later.

If the first game lasts longer than expected (who knows, overtime, etc.?) I'm sure they'll stretch out the start of the second as long as possible. That kind of came into play last Sunday when the Green Bay Seattle overtime started to approach 4:30 and I got concerned about start of the CBS HD game at 4:30 Because of antenna issues needing adjustment for my picture in picture, I missed seeing live the final play in OT. As it turned out, I should've stayed cool because the HD game didn't start until well after 4:30 as I recall, well after conclusion of first.

i'll be interested to see how tonights game in foxborro looks[that is if the equipment doesn't freeze in the extreme cold they're expecting]as far as how the cold'll affect it

If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.

I live just a few miles from the Patriots Stadium (Gillette Stadium) and let me tell you it is cold, cold, cold. Went down to 5 below last night and the temp isn't expected above 8 deg all day. Should be downright nasty for tonights game. It will be a great test for all the HDTV equipment and infrastructure....

A test is good, as long as everything stays up and running for all of us... The game that CBS did last week with the Colts looked great, and sounded even better in 5.1

I wish my experience was as good as yours. My sound was ATROCIOUS, thanks to Comcast and/or my local CBS affiliate, WFSB. All I can say is that if the problems aren't remedied tonight, I'm signing up for DirecTV on Monday!

Is the Carolina vs. St. Louis game in Fox Widescreen EDTV or in SD? We are getting it in stretch-o-vision in Seattle and would like to confirm it before I go rattle the station's cage.

Still 4:3 strech-o-vision here in Seattle. KCPQ was doing so well over the past few weeks. What a let down even if it's only EDTV.

UPDATE: Someone at KCPQ flipped to EDTV.
