    Fox issued a press release on 4/14 announcing that most of their NFL games will be in HD this season. This is great news for all football and HD fans: especially those in NFC cities.

    Some weekends they will have six games and they will all be HD while some weekends they will have seven games so one game will be SD. (Probably scrub games like Detroit vs Arizona.)

    NFL ON FOX KICKS-OFF SUPER BOWL SEASON SEPT. 12th IN HIGH DEFINITION

    Dallas at Green Bay, St. Louis at Carolina, Green Bay at Philadelphia and

    SUPER BOWL XXXIX Among Regular and Postseason Highlights

    FOX Sports Becomes First Network to Present Up To 6 Games Each Week in HD

    2004 Preseason Schedule Features Thursday and Friday

    Prime Time Games on August 19 and 27

    The 2004 NFL on FOX season, one that will culminate with the live presentation of SUPER BOWL XXXIX, premieres Sunday, Sept. 12 with doubleheader coverage of seven games, highlighted by Joe Gibbs’ return to the Redskins’ sidelines when Washington hosts Tampa Bay, and Bill Parcells’ Dallas Cowboys against the Minnesota Vikings. In total, FOX Sports broadcasts a 111-game regular season slate, including nine doubleheader Sundays, the traditional Thanksgiving Day game and two special late-season non-Sunday national broadcasts. Each week, coverage begins with FOX NFL SUNDAY (12:00-1:00 PM ET/9:00-10:00 AM PT), America’s most watched pregame show for ten straight years, starring co-hosts James Brown and Terry Bradshaw, and analysts Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson.

    FOX Sports’ 2004 NFL regular and postseason broadcast schedule 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. In addition, all nationally televised regular and postseason games, including the NFC Championship Game and SUPER BOWL XXXIX, will be offered in the 720p (progressive) high definition format, which takes 60 razor sharp, complete pictures per second, producing spectacular moving images. No other network has ever produced as many as six NFL games in HD on the same day.

    The NFL on FOX’ eleventh season boasts 64 games featuring last season’s playoff teams, including: the Seattle Seahawks (13); the NFC Champion Carolina Panthers (12); the NFC North champion Green Bay Packers (11); the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles (10); the NFC West champion St. Louis Rams (10); and the Dallas Cowboys (10). FOX’ 2004 schedule also includes 12 games featuring the Washington Redskins’ crusade for the Lombardi Trophy, back under the direction of the last man to lead the storied franchise to glory, head coach Joe Gibbs.

    Once the playoff teams are determined, the NFL on FOX presents exclusive live postseason coverage, including: an NFC Wild Card Game on Sunday, Jan. 9; the NFC Divisional Playoffs, Saturday, Jan. 15 and Sunday, Jan. 16; the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 23 and culminates with SUPER BOWL XXXIX on Sunday, Feb. 7 from ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, FL.

    This season’s NFL on FOX coverage again kicks off with three regular-season NFL Europe League contests in June leading up to World Bowl 2004, the league’s championship game, Saturday, June 12 (12:00 PM ET), live from Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

    The NFL on FOX’s 2004 preseason schedule features Jeremy Shockey and the re-tuned New York Giants against the NFC Champion Carolina Panthers, led by former Giant defensive coordinator John Fox, on Thursday, August 19 (8:00 PM ET), live from Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte. Eight days later on Friday, August 27 (8:00 PM ET), Joe Gibbs and the Washington Redskins visit Marshall Faulk and the defending AFC West Champion St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.

    David Hill and Ed Goren are the Executive Producers of the NFL on FOX. Bill Brown is Senior Producer. Scott Ackerson is the Coordinating Producer of FOX NFL SUNDAY.

    Following is a complete list of games on the 2004 NFL on FOX regular and postseason broadcast schedules:

    I got a STB about three weeks ago so I could watch MNF in HD next fall. Then I hear that my Vikes will be on Monday night again after two years of no mondays. Now I'll be able to watch them in HD when they play on Sunday. THIS ROCKS! Best $150 I've spent. I can't wait! Finally fox is going to do some real HD.

    This is good news for everyone, but especially for fans of NFC teams that don't make it to Sunday/Monday night football games. (Like the Lions)

    DTV has said any games broadcast in HDTV by Fox or CBS will be in HDTV on Sunday Ticket.

    They claimed they figure "around half" each week.

    So, will Fox HD be 720p/30 or ABC/ESPN's 720p/60 because of sports and their need for faster frame rates?

    13 Giants games on FOX in hi-def! Throw in a MNF match, and that's almost 90% of the season!

    I'm hyper-ventilating! My wife is never going to get me out of the house on Sunday.

    Sucks to be a Jets fan, no?. Wonder if hi-def capable Gang Green fans may want to reconsider...

    Kyle,
    I am looking at the XBR950 LCD to purchase by the end of the year. Is there a newer set I may not know about?

    I'm amazed at how many people don't know where Jacksonville Florida is. The superbowl is coming here yet people say where?
