Just checked the Directv guide and CBS is covering my Minnesota Vikings vs. N.Y. Jets game tonight. On the HD sports guide it show the game being broadcast in HD. Only problem is the Directv guide doesn't show that it is being broadcast in HD. I hope they are broadcasting in HD, but either way I am watching my beloved Vikings. GO Daunte. Is anyone else showing this game in HD? Any other Viking fans on this forum?

It's being broadcast on CBS in HD so unless you have Directv local HD you better get an antenna.

Vike fans? Now way..Im from Atlanta...GO VICK :yippee:

I also live in Atlanta. Go Vick and go Daunte. I like the Falcons as well. I get locals from NY and LA on Directv. But it doesn't show the HD icon on the guide for the game. I will find out tonight but just wanted to know if anyone else was showing it in HD on their Directv guide. I get the Giants games in HD on the same channel so I am hoping it will apply here also.

My DTV guide does not show the game being aired in HD, however I use the online HDSportsGuide and it has the game listed as a HD broadcast. So far all the games on the list have been broadcast in HD. Go to http://www.hdsportsguide.com. You will be able to print a HD Sports Schedule for the next 14 days. It even shows you what resolution (720p or 1080i). It's a great site. Enjoy

Fox showed the NE vs NO game in HD, this is the first football game i wacthed on my 55 grand wega, with Fox, CBS ESPN HD and ABC MNF i am waiting for football season to kick off, my wife won't like it though.
I had dish network last year and i have to use antenna to watch all these football games, signal drop was very painfull, this is why i got cable now with all HD games will be through local cable.

Bold, bright and beautiful. It was fun to see my Vikes in HD - even all of the penalties.

Yeah, Mike Tice is going to chew some butt about those penalties. Need to get it together before regular season. Even though they lost the game I still love the way the team looks this year. Should be on our way to Detroit. Go Vikings.

Mrm64!,
You got waivers for CBSHD!? If so, HOW!? I was denied by CBS after 5 tries! I have an OTA antenna 35' in the air and still cannot get a signal!

Smithkid years ago I applied for waviers and all were approved. I live too far from towers to pick up reception from OTA.
