Yes I am looking forward to the Super Bowl. I'm glad it's on CBS instead of Fox. CBS football in HD is way better than Fox. Don't know why Fox can't even do 5.1 sound?

HDTV Twin Cities
Still significantly better than the SD channel, but a far cry from 1080i HD!
Here is another (more simplistic) explanation. On Comcast's website athttp://www.comcast.com/Benefits/Cabl...ot4PageOne.asp
It says, and I quote...
"Unlike satellite, with Comcast you can watch local broadcast channels (like ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS*) in HD without an antenna. So you can see the prime-time and sports programs that you wanted to watch when you bought an HDTV set. In addition to our HD programming, in many cities Comcast offers the enhanced viewing experience of FOX Widescreen.
Plus, you get great HD networks like ESPN HD which offers over 100 high definition games a year and selected ESPN original programming. Also, the INHD and INHD2 channels offer an exceptional variety of sports, movies, travel, and nature programming - all in high definition.
Finally, at no extra cost, premium subscribers can catch their favorite hit movies and many ground breaking original series from HBO HD and SHOWTIME HD. And for HD movie lovers, STARZ HD and CINEMAX HD are coming soon."
So you see, they don't call it HD on their website, it is just "Fox Widescreen". That explains why I have been b*tching about it every Sunday and didn't know until today why for HD, it s*cked so badly.
I also like that they mention ABC-HD & PBS-HD, but then the "*" says, "
*HD programming from ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS is available in selected areas."
So at first I thought, "Hey, they said ABC & PBS as HD on their site!", but then I realized that this is just a form letter site that doesn't speak of Saint Paul's listings directly. But we can always hope.
