I know a few years back, DTV had the Super Bowl on a different channel than the standard CBS or CBSHD. Does anyone know if that is the case this year? We have a national feed of CBS, but it is only in SD. I was hoping to luck into a HD feed of the game tonight.

If one of the local CBS channels that D* carries in HD goes down during the game, D* may turn on 390 (WCBS HD).

Have you tried calling DirecTV and asking for the HD DNS Eligibility Dept.?
