    The Chiefs-Pats game is supposed to be shown in HD on channel 706-1. However, as of 9PM Central Saturday night, the program guide for 706-1 where I am in Texas reads: "Upcoming: Raiders @ Chiefs HD Live 1 PM ET."

    What does your Program Guide say?

    Raiders - Chiefs in HD on 706-1

    Pats - Chiefs on 706

    Probably a programming error. I wouldnt worry about it.

    Get a cheap HD antenna for backup . I got one for 10$ from ebay hooked up and all local channels come in HD .

    IF you gotoa store its like 100$ i think.

    CBS does not carry all their games in HD like Fox does. Betcha tomorrow's game is not in HD because of CBS, not because of DTV.

    The Pats-Chiefs in HD is not on 706.1 on my listing either.

    I am in California and mine says the same. It does not list the Pats-KC game in HD. If they do not show it in HD then I believe there is a conspiracy!!!!!! just kidding. It problaby is an error on the guide. Go PATS!!!!!:singing:

    The guide is still not completely correct. According to tech support, it should be by tomorrow and the CBS games will be in HD.

    I think the league pressured CBS to go 100% HD. Last year they didn't have have every game in HD.

    All tv`s like the old one can still use a antenna and view tv. By 08 all local channels are in HD so all you need is a TV can use HD transmission.
    its similar to the old antenna we got with crt TV.

    this is a good link , mine is just a cheap one which a hdmi connector which i plug into the TV. i have used once when cable was down.Its a great backup. Also, all prime time events like games are relayed in HD so even if you not get alot of HD during regular times , prime time event are in HD.After feb 08 all channels will be in HD.
