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

I'm lucky as I can get WIVB-HD via antenna very well on my HR20 so I'll be enjoying them in HD. Can you get channel 4 via antenna?

The issue is that CBS was first to start doing HD football, and thus has an older, less-capable network than Fox who got a later start. That's why Fox was able to jump in and quickly do 6 games per week in HD, while CBS has been slowly ramping up. Even games that are broadcast in SD are usually produced by an HD-capable truck, with HD cameras. CBS just doesn't have the capacity at their master control center in NY to handle all of the games in HD.
