    Any chance they will release the New York Giants Super Bowl in Blu-ray? It was televised in hi-def so who wants SD?

    This is an area that could really be pretty big for Blu-ray. If my teams games were offered in Blu I would be all over it. [​IMG]

    The other thing you can do & I've done this myself is to google a High Def upload of the game...download it, then rip it. Got several Texas A&M football games and they look & sound pretty dang good.

    Good luck.

    I used to buy up the Superbowl DVDs, but stopped when broadcasting in high def became the norm, but the DVDs continued to be released in 4x3. I would definitely buy the Superbowl DVDs on Blu-ray.

    I was just hoping they'd do an anamorphic SD release, but that was only 4x3. They haven't released it on Blu-ray yet so I doubt they will. Unless the Giants repeat and they release a two-pack.

    Unfortunately the only sports titles I've seen on HDM are titles from the WWE.

    Seeing as how they want $12.5k for a ripoff license and $500 a game for my Dad's seats I'm not sure I'm a giants fan any more. F those guys.

    That crappy NFL set is a real mess,non 16x9 would only make sense if it
    was 16mm ,like the NFL Films footage.But to release games that were
    shot in 16x9 HD ,as compressed edited analoge 4:3 is a insane

    Well...I own the 2004 World Series box set--which was broadcast in 16:9 HD and it was released in SD 4:3. I think all the WS sets have been. [​IMG]
