If you do not currently have channels 88/89 on your D* HD receiver active, then you will not be able to see the SuperBowl in HD. It appears that those of us who signed up for the DNS feed of FOX on D* when we had no FOX affiliate, and still pay for the DNS feed, are able to get the FOX HD channel.
At this point, they will no longer grant a waiver to anyone who currently gets their local FOX via D* and their local FOX is not an Owned and Operated affiliate. D* carries WUFX and they are not an O&O. It is next to impossible to get around this with the new legislation.
WUFX will not be transmitting HD until later this year so you cannot pick it up OTA either.
I will say this, '24' has been awesome in HD and DD5.1. The NFL game on Sunday (Packers and Vikings) looked horrible. It was by far the worst NFL HD presentation I have seen. I had the NFL Sunday Ticket so I could watch the Redskins in HD, and each week the FOX games looked great. But this weekend was horrible.
