I would guess at this point it will just be upconverted SD until they can budget for new cameras, but I could be wrong. I'm fine with that solution for now. KSL news is just upconverted SD and it looks fine to me. Not as good as true HD, but acceptable.

I don't know where we could find out how many games are going to be in HD.

If you notice they are all away games. I wonder if that has to do with which arenas have the equipment necessary to broadbcast in HD. IIRC, when I looked at the schedule a few weeks ago the schedule showed these same games in HD. Maybe now that FSNUTHD is up, there will be more.

I have heard (although I don't have a press release or anything) that KJZZ plans to broadcast in HD beginning in April of 2008. Their webstite just says "Not yet, but soon". http://www.kjzz.com/about/faq

At the start of the season Larry Miller was on the radio talking about when KJZZ would be broadcasting in HD. He said all the games are actually filmed in HD, but the station only broadcasts in SD because they didn't have an antenna for HD.

Anyway, we should be seeing all the FSN games in HD now. However, all I'm getting on this FSN Utah HD channel so far is a black screen. The guide lists it as "To Be Announced" and the screen is black (when the Jazz game is on the FSN Utah SD channel).

Has anyone actually watched anything on the FSN Utah HD channel yet?

There has been one Jazz game in HD on the FSN Utah HD channel to my knowledge. It looked pretty good.

I finally saw HD on this channel. The Jazz were on last night in HD. Normally this channel has nothing.

Yeah, they've had HD a couple times now. Few and far between though. Like you said, most of the time the channel has nothing, and "To Be Announced" listed in the guide...

I'm still hoping Larry makes good and upgrades to HD in April. The playoffs and championship run would be great in HD!!

Unfortunately I don't think FSN-UT carries much (if any) playoff games.

I think TNT/ABC/ESPN have those games, and what they don't pick up is then picked up by KJZZ...

This evening's away loss to the Mavs was in HD on KJZZ OTA channel 14-1.

All of the playoff games that are on KJZZ will be in HD.

I wonder how long it will be until D* adds KJZZ to their SLC HD lineup?

Wow KJZZ is broadcasting in HD now? Yeah, Directv needs to get this added ASAP!

Use OTA! If your in the valley and within 35 - 40 miles of the transmitters it works great. Personally I think it's much better (live or recorded) than what is being sent from the birds.

I don't have an OTA HD antenna. All I have is my Directv...

Hopefully Directv will have KJZZ in HD soon.

Bad news guys... I sent the following email to info@kjzz.com today:

"So I heard that Jazz games will be broadcast in HD on KJZZ now. Will they be in HD on Directv? What do I have to do to get KJZZ in HD on Directv?

Thanks."



I later received the following reply:


"You will have to tell Direct TV to give us an HD channel. So far they say they are not going to do it.

I don't know who we need to contact at Directv, but we need to get a campaign going. It's almost the playoffs and we won't have KJZZ in HD! BTW- Comcast is supposedly already carrying it and their customers will be watching the Jazz in HD on KJZZ starting tonight...

Who can we hound at Directv?

So that channel is a LIL channel.... you will probably get it someday, but I wouldn't bet on it for this years playoffs......Hopefully most of the games will also be broadcast on a national channel and you will be able to pick up their games in hd that way. (tnt and espn are goring to broadcast a lot of games) Or, can you put up an antenna?

I'd go pick up a cheap OTA antenna and see how it works. I am 30 miles or so from the broadcast towers and I get the OTA digital channels great with an antenna in my attic. I can only get 1 or 2 of them in analog, but he digital comes in great.
