    Will the Hall-of-Fame game be broadcast in HD? It is on the NFL Network which is not presently HD. Last year they would simulcast on channel 99, but as of this moment it is not listed on the guide. Earl....any info?

    The NFL Network broadcasts their HD on the special events HD channel 95

    When is the game?

    Not currently listed on chans 95-99, but I'm guessing they will be determined soon and in the guide.

    Cheers,

    I've noticed that events to air in the 90's don't show more than two days in advance.

    Once NFL Network gets its own HD channel, this becomes moot. :)

    I wouldn't expect it to show up in the guide until probably Friday or Saturday (assuming it will be carried on 95 which I'm guessing it will).

    And yes, very soon NFLN-HD will have it's own channel as will all the RSNs-HD which will eliminate all this channel 95 crud.

    refer to this thread for pre-season week 1 games and their times/channels/HDness in the sports programming forum on dbs talk...

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=91401

    As described in the post the preseason schedules will be in that forum and the regular season weekly schedules will be in this one since it will be tailored to NFL Sunday Ticket...thanks to gct for posting the schedules.

    My installer is coming 8/6 - so I'm gonna miss the HOF game in HD! oh well pre-season games aren't that exciting anyway, its the only one I'll not be able to watch, and the broncos play the following monday in HD...

    I just read last night (sorry, I can't remember the link) that D* will show most of the NFL preseason games from the NFL Network. I believe Sunday's game is included.

    Do you have to have the $12/mo sports pack or the NFL Sunday ticket to get the NFL network? Can I get it in HD with just the HD package? Thanks.

    FWIW, I do NOT have sports pack or NFL ST, and I received ALL NFL Network games in HD on channel 95 last season. :) I do believe that the NFL Network HD channel will be part of the HD package.

    Cheers,
    John

    NFL network is included in the base programming package, Choice, the sports pack is required. All you need is the HD package to receive the NFL Network in HD when it is on channel 94 or 95. When the 24/7 HD channel is launched you will also get that.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    It shows on my Ch. 94 also but doesn't have the HD logo. Is it a re-broadcast of SD programming or HD version of the game?

    It also shows the MLB extra innings logo, and as a pay-per-view at this time. I suspect all of these anomalies are wrong, and it will be a normal, free, HD game.

    Sweet! How was the quality of these HD games on the NFL Network last year? Discovery HD quality or crappy NBC golf quality/

    I would say it was closer to crappy NBC golf but not as bad. Since it will be MPEG4 this year hopefully it will be much better.

    MUCH better than crappy NBC coverage. From what I remember last season, ALL of the cameras were HD cameras on the NFL network.

    I still find it incredible that NBC combines SD cameras with their HD cameras in the golf coverage. I wonder if they think no one will notice! :lol:
