  • Broncos in High Definition

    I just saw a bit of a press release by FOX indicating they're going to air about 6 NFL games a week in high def. Because they air the NFC games the Broncos will only be in two of those: Oct 10th vs the Panthers and Oct 31st vs the Falcons.

    Anybody know if CBS will be doing anything similar for the AFC games?

    I keep considering getting an HDTV but I've been holding off until there is enough content to make it worthwhile. And the Broncos games in high definition would probably make it worth it.

                Do NOT by an HDTV now

                They will all become much cheaper by the end of the decade, plus the content is only emerging just now. Also there are even newer technologies which are of higher quality (being developed in japan) and could render hdtv crap

                  I dunno. When I was in college in 1993, my comm professors told us to make sure we understood how hi-def worked, because of FCC legislation that would madate it by 1997. Then by 1999...then by 2001.....

                  I think that the FCC either misjudged demand for it, or doesn't understand the particulars of switching over from analog to hi-def/digital broadcasting. They are all lawyers, not engineers.

                  Anyway, I just don't think there is enough demand at current prices for the equipment for a complete switchover by 2006. If people's TV's work fine, most of them don't have the desire or budget to spend money on a new TV that has features they don't want or understand.


                  I personally don't care about hi-def. I have seen it. Its nice. But not even close to being a necessity. It won't improve the quality of my life or the quality of the shows on the TV. Its akin to everyone telling me that I HAVE to get a DVD and home theater set up. I am "missing so much" in the movies I watch. Well, a sucky movie on DVD is just a better looking sucky movie. A crappy tv show in hi-def will still be crappy, just crap with a lot moe detail.

                    I don't understand what makes it better.

                    Are the colors more vibrant or something?

                      Without being an engineer, I do know that aside from a different screen ratio, it also has a lot more dots per line and lines per screen than current TV. This is sort of like the resolution settings on your scanner or digital camera. The higher the higher the DPI setting, the sharper the image. With TV, the more lines per screen, the more detail in the image being broadcast.

                          HDTV will be the standard here in the states so whatever Japan is developing won't really have much of an effect here. I plan to buy a high definition setup in the next year or so regardless of price. It's just like computers; if you keep waiting to buy the new technology waiting around the corner you'll never end up buying anything because there's always something new around the corner.

                          The only decisions for me are when and what. When will there be enough content for my needs? (The Broncos in Hi-Def would be great!) What technology will I choose? Plasma, LCD, LCoS? Hi-Def via cable, DirecTV, Dish, Voom, or over the air?

                          While I am definitely at the other end of the spectrum, I fully respect your position. I love the clarity of HDTV and it definitely enhances my enjoyment of my favorite movies and shows. But if it does nothing for you, I wouldn't think of trying to shove it down your throat. To each his own...

                            It not that I feel peole are trying to shove it down my throat. Its just that I don't understand how this will effect my life. I mean, that's a lot of money that I can get a better return on by splitting it between savings and investing.

                            Its the same with a DVD or my own cell phone. No one can explain how they will have a positive effect on my life.

                            Not my cup o tea.

                            Or maybe I AM just a cheap bastard, like everyone tells me.

                              Aye it must be that last one!

                              I'm the opposite end of the spectrum, I love all the newest technologies. However, I don't have the money to go out & get a new tv at this point...I'm still paying off my other toys
