NFL 2007 In HD
For the coming NFL season, the FOX network will continue to broadcast up to 6 NFL games per Sunday in 720p High Definition. The CBS network announced on 4/24/07 that they will broadast up to 6 NFL games per Sunday in 1080i High Definition.

Here’s how the season works out:

NFL 2007.......1080i-HD...720p-HD...480i-SD

CBS (AFC)..........100............................7
ESPN (MNF) ......................17...............
FOX (NFC).........................99.............. 8
NBC(SNF).............17............................
NFLNET..................8............................

A week-to-week review of the NFL 2007 Schedule shows us:

1. We will now have 94% of the NFL 2007 Season Games in HD.
2. Of the 256 games played this year, only 15 will be braodcast in SD.
3. Through the season, FOX which has the NFC, will have only 8 SD games.
4. Through the season, CBS which has the AFC, will have only 7 SD games.
5. Weeks 1, 5, 6, 9, 12 and 15 will be 100% HD -- zero SD games for those 6 weeks.


HD Games for the season, on a weekly basis:
Week 1: 16 of 16 games in HD
Week 2: 14 of 16 games in HD
Week 3: 14 of 16 games in HD

Excellent news, thanks for the info, with this and further HD programming in September, I believe this will put D*TV ahead of the curve. I'm certainly excited, I can now justify the cost to my wife of our D*TV bill for premium channels. :)

Peace and blessings,

Azeke

I just hope the few none HD games are not the Ravens. If they are that is going to suck.

I moved this to the HDTV Programming forum...

As the announcement and the stats are more "alligned" with HDTV programming in general... not just DirecTV the service provider.

Just to add a little to the fine work done by gct...

I went through and applied the "visiting team's conference's network" to each Sunday 1pm and 4pm game to find which networks would have the SD games for that week. I counted any games over 6 for those two time slots as an SD-only game.

HD Games for the season, on a weekly basis:
Week 1: 16 of 16 games in HD
Week 2: 14 of 16 games in HD        one SD game on FOX (1), one on CBS (1)
Week 3: 14 of 16 games in HD	    FOX (1), CBS (1)
Week 4: 13 of 14 games in HD	    CBS (1)
Week 5: 14 of 14 games in HD
Week 6: 13 of 13 games in HD
Week 7: 13 of 14 games in HD	    FOX (1)
Week 8: 12 of 13 games in HD	    CBS (1)
Week 9: 14 of 14 games in HD
Week 10: 13 of 14 games in HD	    FOX (1)
Week 11: 14 of 16 games in HD	    FOX (1), CBS (1)
Week 12: 16 of 16 games in HD
Week 13: 15 of 16 games in HD	    CBS (1)
Week 14: 15 of 16 games in HD	    FOX (1)
Week 15: 16 of 16 games in HD
Week 16: 15 of 16 games in HD	    CBS (1)
Week 17: 14 of 16 games in HD	    FOX (2)

Notes:
1. I counted the Week 8 Giants/Dolphins game in London as a FOX game, but really don't know what's going to happen there.
2. Weeks 11-17 are subject to flexing. I just looked at what the schedule says as of now. I don't know if they would flex a game from a network that would not get to show what was originally the late game. Your guess is a good as mine on that.

{below is an excerpt from Wikipedia speaking to the flex rules}


During the last week of the season, the league can re-schedule games as late as six days before the contests so that all of the television networks will be able to broadcast a game that has playoff implications.

Both FOX and CBS have the right to "protect" 5 games (each) when flexible scheduling for Week 10-15, 17 are in place. This allows FOX and CBS to protect at least one marquee game to show on a national scale. Both networks are also allowed to move a 1:00 p.m. ET slotted game to 4:05 p.m. ET or 4:15 p.m. ET during this time of the season.
