No CBS HD?

Why is it that you can only get CBS HD when you have something like CBS East or West? Will I HAVE to get an OTR antenna to pick it up? Normally I wouldn't care, but most of the Buffalo Bills games are on CBS, not FOX.

Better invest in an OTA antenna. :)

Do you think that would help? I know rbinck had a post saying that CBS was going to cover more games in HD this year (until last year it was only 3 a week) but I'm not sure that has panned out yet. I tuned in to the [email protected] game today and that was 4:3 SD with Comcast using the #233 CBS-HD channel. I'd bet the Jets/Bills was one that CBS chose not to cover in Hi-Def, which means no OTA antenna would get it in HD.

Just a thought... :2cents

p.s. As far as I know, every FOX NFL game is in Hi-Def, as are the ESPN and NBC games.

If the OP's local market isn't covered by DirecTV, the only way he's going to get any CBS HD games is to either sign up for the SNT/SF package or get OTA. He must be a Bills fan from the Buffalo area based on his post so there's a good chance that with OTA, he will get to view them in HD from time to time. :)
