Athens, GA (Sept 3, 2008) - In a story posted on "Todays News", CBS Sports is ready to broadcast all of their NFL game broadcasts in Hi-Def, with a caveat from Ken Aagaard, Executive Vice-President of Engineering, Operations and Production Services of CBS Sports:
“All of our trucks and game sites will be HD. Everything will be produced in 16×9, 1080i HD,” Aagaard (pictured left. “Our issue right now is that we may not be able to distribute completely in HD. It depends on our networking. There are occasions where there will be issues. For example, in a double-header, a late game may start in 4×3 until we can free up distribution equipment from the earlier game to get the HD signal out. It’s very possible we will have no problems all year. Still, there’s a multitude of circumstances were we can’t transmit in HD, and these may surface during the season.”
The question is how many people are paying for a hi-def signal now through their satellite or cable providers?
