This may be a stupid question, but nobody seems to have an answer when I search. Who has the rights to the Super Bowl this year? which network? If it hasn't yet been bid on when will it happen? Thanks for your answer!

I am wondering if the cable and satellite companies who don't carry Fox now will still be able to put this on their special events HD channel. Similar to the baseball game the other night.

At NFL.com, in the TV-radio section, you could have found this:

"...The 2004 NFL on FOX season, one that will culminate with the live presentation of SUPER BOWL XXXIX, boasts an unprecedented presentation of high definition programming. Beginning Sept. 12, the network will present up to six games in 720p high definition every week during the regular season. No other network has ever produced as many as six NFL games in HD on the same day...."


And a " Super Bowl TV" google search turned up the same information as well as facts on the current TV contracts and the TV rotation of Super Bowls.

I would bet Fox uses Super Bowl XXXIX as a powerful marketing hammer, just like CBS did this year.

Unfortunately, some of us live in areas where the O&O for the Fox outlet insist the local cableco pay extra for their HD feed. So, we have a stalemate. :mad:

YMMV

With that many posts one would think one would know by now some of us can not get OTA. Especially Fox.

Depending on location, that often isn't possible. I have a free-standing house, but hills prevent easy reception of most OTA channels even within the city limits.

It's a possibility. Only time will tell.

Weird? No.


This would be weird: Ford sponsors it, and it will be called the Superbowl Galaxie 500-XL.....

There's no bidding. It changes on a rotating basis.

The bigger question of me is will E add a FOX super station by then. I live in the FOX white area for both digital and analog.
