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.

Yeah, KJZZ is officially in HD now. It's channel 657 on Comcast (the KJZZ HD channel).

I set up the rabbit ears and got the OTA feed last night, but hopefully Directv will pick it up and give us an HD channel.

It doesn't really make a difference when I'm at home, but if I'm out in the middle of the desert in my motorhome I want to be able to watch the Jazz in HD...

FSN-UT is broadcasting 60 of the 82 Utah Jazz games this year.

Has anyone since how many of these will be HD? I saw a press release from last year stating they were aiming to broadcast all Jazz games in HD after KJZZ when HD in April. Anyone find an update?

The only thing the Jazz have released so far is on their website at www [dot] nba [dot] com/jazz/schedule/2008_09_jazz_tvschedule [dot] html and it states only that the HD games will be released at a later date. I hope they are all in HD, but after reading a little about FSN HD last year, it was mentioned that only 10 games or so from each team on each FSN feed would be in HD. But that was last year. I believe FSN Utah only showed 3 Jazz games last year in HD.
