Looks like the NFL game on CBS on 12/10 is not in HD. Other HD channels are fine. Currently the CBS on Channel 6307 in HD normal has the black bars on side. Is it normal to at times have something like an NFL game that I would expect to be in HD not be. I am new to HD and am curious. I can fill the screen with the stretch function but generally do not like it that way.

CBS shows three games per Sunday in HD and, as I recall, none of CBS early games are in HD today.

They do plan to increase the number but there is no set timetable.

Thank you. I am a bit surprised that a major network would not do HD for NFL. Oh well. Thank you again for helping a newbie.

The Jaguars-Colts game on CBS was not in HD -- the PQ in SD sucked -- but
in spite of that, the Jags won anyway 44-17, so it was a good day after all! :)

You should be seeing the Broncos-Chargers in HD right now.

Raiders Bengals game here on the left coast was not in HD either. Very annoying to watch football in narrow screen now-a-days.
Cmon CBS, give us better service..................

All Fox games are HD.
No, they aren't. FOX does up to 6 games a week in HD. Some weeks they have a 7th or 8th game depending on the matchups that week... and on those weeks any game beyond #6 is in FOX Widescreen, not HD.

I think we've had this discussion now about a dozen times just in the last month... maybe we should have a sticky or something? :)
