    Does anyone have any information as to what programming in HD we might expect this fall from Dish Network? I saw the Cubs and Rockies game this week and even though I'm not a big sports fan the HD made it very interesting. Any chance of any NFL games in HD or dare I ask... maybe a Superbowl HD broadcast? OK, I know the latter is a stretch but the live broadcast just wet my appetite for more.
    Thanks,
    Jerry

    CBS is going to be airing a college football game each week in HD. In addition, they will probably air select NFL games in HD. As I recall, they did a game on Thanksgiving last year plus the playoffs and Super Bowl. Unfortunately, I believe that Fox has the Super Bowl this year which makes HD unlikely.
    CBS also broadcast the US Open tennis tournement in HD last year and a repeat appears likely. That starts at the end of August.
