Well,

It looks like CBS will be doing 5 HD games per week according to their schedule. This is definently an improvement from past years, but some fans will still not be seeing HD coverage of their teams.

Denver @ Buffalo, 1:00 p.m. (CBS HD)
Pittsburgh @ Cleveland, 1:00 p.m. (CBS HD)
Kansas City @ Houston, 1:00 p.m. (CBS HD)
Tennessee @ Jacksonville, 1:00 p.m.
New England @ N.Y. Jets, 1:00 p.m. (CBS HD)
Miami @ Washington, 1:00 p.m. (CBS HD)


NFL on CBS Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 16

Houston @ Carolina, 1:00 p.m.

5 is better than the 3 the last few years but not as good as the 6 they talked about.

Buffalo Bills vs. Denver will not be in HD here since, you guessed it, CBS local is owned by LIN tv. :mad:

IMHO:

This is 100% irresponsible of CBS.

FOX made the investiment what, 3 years ago now... to make sure they had enough equipment to cover EVERY game in HD.

Most of these stadiums are state of the art now, have been retrofitted to make it easy for the broadcasters to do what they need to do.

CBS is one of the largest media companies out there...... there is no excuse that they have not purchased the equipment necessary to cover all of the games in HD.... really no excuse at alll.

I truely hope in the next TV package deal NFL creates, that it is stipulated that it MUST be filmed/offered in HD.

I agree completely Earl and was about to post the same thing until I seen you already posted it.

As big of a network as CBS is and as much money they make off of the NFL it is crazy not to offer every game in HD.

Actually... looking at that schedule... I am very surprised that this is not one of the 5 HD games... The Bengals are going to draw a large audience this year... and I know out of the games listed... this would have been a game I would have watched... not now... not in SD...

What makes me angry is that CBS has not steped up to the plate... and unfortunately... I know there will come a week where I will have to watch the Dolphins in crappy SD... it is time for CBS/Viacom to step up and deliver the goods.

It would seem to me that if they were that worried about the cost they could find a way to recap some of the money by donating/selling the older equipment that would be replaced by the HD upgrade. It's not like the equipment used for these events is cheap, worn out, or even unusable. I am sure a lot of universities or other entities would love to have access to this equipment.

CBS = Cheap Bas#%*! Station

This is my opinion, otherwise I do want world peace!

That's not really a true statement. The game is being shown in HD by CBS, and you can receive it with an antenna. D* just doesn't carry WIVB-DT yet.

I have seen it reported that the current contract does require all games in HD by 2009.

What I found odd about the schedule is that there are 5 games in HD at the same time in Week 1 but only three at a time in Week 2. Why can't they use the same switching for an early game and switch to HD when an early game completes to a late game.

I believe that since CBS has the AFC package, AFC interconference games should get first dibs at HD. That would cover just about every divisional matchup and interconference and divisional games mean a lot more towards playoff berths.

If you are paying out the bunghole for an AFC package then why promote the other conference? Who cares about ratings, the NFC stinks anyway. (sorry Earl)

I still steadfastly refuse to purchase anything from a CBS NFL advertiser until all their games are in HD and have written CBS that several times.

The good news is that most people will be happy. The bad news is that some won't.

I can already see that the Houston @ Carolina, 1:00 p.m. game is not in HD so I'll have at least one problem game.

Don't count on the games listed to actually be in HD. All HD games are confirmed the week before. So we won't know "for sure" until Wednesday or so the week of the games for sure which ones will be in HD

This is probably 99% confirmed. It's up on the CBS sports web site which from what I've seen in the past, doesn't do much changing to their NFL schedule once they have it set. I'd post a link to it but can't cause I don't have enough posts.....

If I were D* - I'd be making that argument directly to the NFL claiming that SD broadcasts in this day and age are negatively impacting the NFL brand and they should be pressuring CBS to add that 6th game.

Can't they just borrow some equipment for the day?:confused:
