    I was hoping to upgrade my copy of Super Bowl XXXVIII vs Carolina with a widescreen version off NFL Network, and to my disappointment, their showing it in SD. I can't believe CBS didn't have HD by early 2004 and use it to show possibly their biggest program in 3 years. What's up with that? Is the NFL Network being stinkers?

    They probably didn't shoot the footage in HD. It would have to be transfered to another tape and converted to HD. Not impossible just time consuming and costly.

    It's NFL Network. CBS did broadcast the game in HD. I have a HD copy of the game on my HDD.

    NFL Network usually rebroadcasts games in HD, such as their Replay games some of which were originally aired on CBS/FOX. The replay of Pats/Colts was on HD. I'm watching XXXVIII in standard def because I hate the 4:3 ratio that non-HD program go in on HD channels.

    May be in the offseason :p I have it as the original transport stream - so it stands at a whopping 24 GB. I will need to re-encode it as MP4 and share.

    Well, that answers my question in a backhand way, that no, it wasn't shot in HD. But I know I viewed Super Bowl XXXIX in HD just a year later, and it seems HD has been around since before 2005.
