    You'll need an HDTV or HDTV monitor & set-top-box, and a TV antenna to get the signal. Most all viewers within 50 miles of these stations can get the game in HDTV. The current entry level price for such a system (via authorized Internet retailers) is less than $3000.
    Update: Through special arrangement, the PBS DTV station in Denver, CO will carry the CBS HDTV feed. And thanks to Mike I for the Orlando TW Cable info.

    Just to add since WKMG Orlando's tower is not quite complete yet, they have the equipment in place to pass all CBS hd signals and have reached agreement with Time Warner cable in Orlando to carry the HD feed for the superbowl

    I believe Sacramento/Stockton channel 25.1 is also on the list of HDTV CBS broadcasters.

    I have a wonderful proof of this theorem but, with the 1536 kb/s bitrate DTS soundtrack, there is no room on the DVD to write it.
