Subject: Superbowl in Widescreen
I understand that FOX and RCA will be presenting the Superbowl in widescreen DTV. Is there any chance that KASA will have the new digital transmitter in operation in time for the February broadcast?
I've owned a HD capable system since March of 2001 (Sony HT10 projector, Mitsubishi STB). I have enjoyed High Definition programming from HBO and especially HDNet on DirecTV, and now KNME-DT on channel 35. I realize that FOX had determined that 480p is "good enough" and is not doing any high definition 1080i or 720p programming. The Superbowl would be very enjoyable in widescreen standard definition anyway. Looking forward to MLB on FOX and KASA!
and the reply:
Sorry, No. Our plans do not have us on line until May.
