    Who knows what channels the Superbowl will be broadcasted in HD on? Im sure I can pick it up OTA on CBS, however Im not setup with an antenna for that yet. Will ESPN HD be covering it or perhaps one of the multiple NFL Network channels (the ones that play the game of the week in HD) on DirecTV?

    im pretty sure it's being broadcast on CBS only. Though i do not know for sure, I would bet money it will be in HD.

    At over $2 million per 30 sec commercial, I don't think that CBS or the NFL will allow anyone else other than radio to broadcast the game simultaneously.

    ESPN is owned by ABC. There is no chance that CBS will relinquish their rights to a fierce competitor.

    Plus, CBS has made it quite clear in their HD "It's all here" commercials that you will only see it in HD on CBS!!!

    CBS only. OTA for most, via satellite for D* and Dish users in O&O areas.

    I spoke to a D* rep today and she said that an announcement will be released within two days as to exactly when CBS HD and FOX HD will start being offered. Definitely in time for the Superbowl though.

    Fox has to start providing HD programming before DirectTV can transmit it.

    Yes D* means DirecTV. It's a pun of Echostar (Dish Network) often being abbreviated as E*.

    Before you get too excited and start sprouting wood, it isn't available unless you live in a city where the local CBS station is owned by the CBS network (stations known as "O&O"), or if you live where you can't receive a local CBS signal and qualify to receive a distant CBS signal by satellite.

    The cities that have CBS O&O stations are: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Salt Lake City, Austin, Texas, and Green Bay.

    Many cable companies offer CBS-HD also. Comcast for me.

    And Los Angeles.

    I just cut and pasted the list from DirecTV's web site. I think the reason the list excluded New York and L.A. is because people who live in these O&O cities will be getting the CBS-HD feed from either the N.Y. or L.A. CBS stations.

    This will be the biggest HD presentation ever I believe so far, than we have The Grammy's on CBS HD and The Daytona 500 in HD on NBC.

    This is the third or fourth time the Superbowl is in HD. I know CBS has done it at least once before, and so has ABC. It will be "biggest" only in terms of how many people will be watching the HD.
