    Just looked over at CBS' site and it says the Chiefs/Chargers game will be broadcast in HD. How does that work for us New Yorkers where the CBS game will be Bills/Pats?
    I just had a dish an antennae installed on the roof today (for a new HD satellite service/ I'll do a thread on that when I have some more info for y'all). I am receiving CBS in HD, the tennis looks amazing. Just really curious if I'm going to see that HD game tomorrow.
    Anyone know?
    thanx

    anyone who has a local team will get that game.
    cities areas that have no local team will get the national game.

    One game a week will be in HD on CBS, they will decide from week to week which one. If you have DirecTv and NFL ticket you will get this game each week. ESPN HD will have Sunday Night Football in HD each week- available on DirecTv's HDTV package and soon to be on Dish Network and on some cable stations.
    The games look awesome in HD! They look pathetic on regular DirecTv channels. The Fox 480p widescreen games are slightly better but don't even compare to HD.

    Check out the CBS HDTV website, they list each game they will broadcast in HDTV. This week it will be NE at Phil, next week Cle at SF, I can not wait as Cablevision has just added WCBSHD and PBSHD and soon to be FOXHD as HDTV digital channels. I was never so happy to see an ep as CSI Miami last night, wow.

    Is High Def football as good as as I hope it will be, who has experienced it yet?

    Only player close ups are crisper. The long shots of actual plays in progress are SD on Fox. Ill tell you about CBS next week, oh, wait, Youll see for yourself.

    Edit. No I wont, the Jets are in SD. What the hell did I but this TV for?

    Last year was my first NFL game in HD and it was awesome!(Titans playoff game)
    This year there are 3 NFL games per week in HD- nice improvement!(MNF, Sunday Night Football and one CBS game)
    On DirecTv with the HD package $10.95 a month and NFL ticket I get all but MNF- cause I don't live near an OTA broadcast.
    The NFL games in HD are unbelievable! Even far away the players are crystal clear and a bright picture. This is why I bought my HDTV four years ago and now it is reality. I am excited because the Vikings play the Bears Sunday night on ESPN HD. And in November they play the Packers on that channel!
    As far as Fox widescreen 480p, it does not impress me at all. It is slightly brighter and sharper than a normal satellite channel but has a strange color and grain and not very pleasing.

    Fox widescreen is a big step up from cable. Since I'm a Giants fan in the NY/NJ area and Fox has two widescreen games, I'll probably get most of the games in EDTV on Fox. This works out better than if I were a Jets fan and never drawing Simms and Gumbel for the season.

    During halftime, CBS HD switched to the Chiefs game instead of the studio, and those few minutes made Fox look like cable. We're getting the NE/Philly game on account of the Giants being on MNF, and I can't wait to watch a full game in true HD (and watch the Eagles lose again).

    Wow! Left the Jet debacle early in the 4th today, got home to watch some serious HDTV!
    The Pats/Eagles game looked unbelievable. CBS really looks great. Makes FOX look foolish.

    C'mon Rupert...spend the money...do it right!!!

    Okay, I had to pick up my jaw on a few ocassions while watching the NFL on CBS in HDTV today, the crispness and immediacy of the telecast is very much appreciated, it spoils me to the extent that conventional NFL telecasts are just not up to snuff anymore.

    Wow. To watch the Eagles get totally spanked and dominated is a treat in and of itself. But to see it unfold in Hi-Def? Couldn't have asked for more.

    Football in HD is an experience not to be missed. Totally drool-worthy.
