I watched the 4pm NFL game (Tampa Bay vs. Green Bay) on WFLX-DT (29-1) yesterday. I was pleasently surprised the game appeared to be broadcast in a true 16:9 aspect ratio. I compared the picture between my Adelphia Cable FOX channel and WFLX-DT to comfirm that the WFLX-DT picture was indeed being displayed in 16:9 mode. Since I've read that FOX has chosen to broadcasting in 480p rather than 1080i, I didn't expect a 16:9 wide angle view to be broadcast - but there it was. I would say the picture quality was comparable to DVD. The picture quality wasn't as good as football games I've watched on HDNet in 1080i, but it was still a big improvement over over NTSC broadcasts.
