Was the Fabio and H3 commercials supposed to be in HD? They were both in Widescreen.

Ok right after I made my post I went back and tried the HD channel again and it was on. It must of came on after half time. I have a house full of people and were pissed the first half was not in HD.

Anyway cool hummer commercial. I also liked the clydesdale one as well. Here we go.

Fabio and Hummer commercials were both windowboxed in Dallas. That's about 6 commercials so far. Not sure what's causing that.

I loved the Hummer ad, but SD? I have to think that a 60% bare minimum of their potential customers own HDTVs. It does not make sense for them to produce ads that are not in HD.

Glad it's in HD now. :D

I couldn't figure out why the ABC HD channel would be blacked out on TODAY of all days, assuming your local affiliate wasn't in a peeing match with the cable company.

27 huh? Well that might be 85% if you count all of ABC's house ads in HD, but given that there at least 45 unique ads according to SpotBowl.com (some are running multiple times), I doubt it.
