Yes, it is airing on April 3rd. Also, the title with No added may need to be changed.

Why, do you know for a fact it will finally be in HD 16:9?

All I said was the No in the title may need to be changed.
It is airing in a couple weeks on ABC though.

But it may not need to be changed. After all, it's pure speculation. I'm very sure it won't be in HD.

Oh I'm not speculating. Maybe not saying the answer outright, but no speculation here.

16:9 has nothing to do with an HD airing of this Movie...I have no idea as to the format they will use, but many things air in HD that aren't 16:9.

I really hope they're not dumb enough to pull a 4:3 "HD".
That would be no improvement at all over how it's been shown in the past.

If the original release was in OAR of 1:85, then anything else they air is butchered, whether its in HD or not.


I watch many SD DVD's in widescreen, and although not HD, looks better than 4:3.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (4/3)

CHARLTON HESTON PORTRAYS MOSES IN THE DRAMATIC BIBLICAL EPIC,

Cecil B. DeMille's massive film spectacle, "The Ten Commandments," one of the most popular box-office movies of all time, will air as an "ABC Special Presentation," SATURDAY, APRIL 3 (7:00-11:44 p.m., ET), on The ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 3/26/89)


Starring Charlton Heston as Moses, this dramatic Biblical epic is presented with an all-star cast, including Yul Brynner as Pharaoh, Anne Baxter as Queen Nefretiri, Edward G. Robinson as the overseer of the slaves and Yvonne DeCarlo as Moses' wife.


The film traces the story of Moses, from the time his mother set him afloat on the Nile, through his years as a young commander in Pharaoh's army to his betrayal and exile and, finally, his deliverance of the Israelites and the receiving of God's Commandments.


"The Ten Commandments" won the 1956 Academy Award for Best Special Effects and received nominations for Best Picture, Best Art Direction/Set Decoration, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing and Best Sound.

"THE TEN COMMANDMENTS" IN HDTV:

"The Ten Commandments" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound.
This film carries a TV-G parental guideline.

I don't see anywhere in the press release above that it will be in 16:9. Just says HD, which could mean 4:3 HD.


I'll believe it when I see it.

I'll have to remind myself to take a look... unfortunately it will be airing against the NCAA men's final 4 on CBS, so I won't be watching the whole thing even if in HD.


I bought the DVD years ago... but would happily re-buy again if they released in HD on Blu ray.

You must be kidding.


The OAR was 1.85:1, the 1989 re-release was 2.20:1.


There is no previous example of any HD film transfer that took a widescreen AR and made it 4:3. None.

What I meant was it would be shown in 4:3, but some networks claim a broadcast to be in HD, which is nothing more than an up-converted 4:3.


If indeed Suki84 saw the preview commercial in 16:9, then we should be in for a treat.
