    I cannot believe no one else has brought this up. I was told last year, that starting next year, The Academy Awards show will be presented in HDTV when the show debuts in its new location, the Kodak theatre on Hollywood Blvd. Today while browsing the titantv.com I was shocked to see that we still will not be getting the show in HDTV. Can anyone shed some light on this subject.

    Thanks

    Maybe they're worried about piracy just like what the movie industry states will happen with high definition DVD? [​IMG]
    Or maybe because it's hosted by Woopie Goldberg [​IMG]
    In all honesty, I'm surprised it never has been televised in HDTV. It would have been the perfect opportunity to sell the new(?) technology.
