NFL HDTV schedule?

I'm debating whether to get a HDTV tuner card, mostly to be used for watching football. In Cleveland, CBS usually airs the Browns games. How can I figure out if they broadcast the Browns games in HD?

All the ABC and ESPN games are HD. The FOX and CBS HD games are determined on a week-to-week basis (although I believe the main doubleheader game is usually HD).

Every game I've ever seen on Fox has been in HD.

Not necessarily. Definitely depends on your local cable/satelite provider. All the Monday Night Football games shown on my Time Warner Cable were not in HD all last year. Hope that changes this year!

Well I assume that if the OP lives in the Cleveland area, he can get his local ABC (since it is a major market) in OTA HD.

MNF and all ESPN games are in HD.

All FOX games are also in HD.

Only CBS's nationally televised games and a few "big market" games were in HD last year...hopefully they'll change that policy this year.

But as one poster noted, it depends on your market...sometimes a local station will forget to "flip the switch" (for lack of a better term), even though the network is offering a HD broadcast. This happens to a lot of primetime shows as well (I had a few episodes of "24" last year that I didn't get locally in HD for this reason).

Strange thing is the the total population of the Triad area (three cities) I live in is nearly the same total population (over half a million people) as Cleveland. That's why I can't understand why TW isn't broadcasting the MNF games in HD here.

Looks like there will be 6 FOX HD broadcasts and 3 CBS HD broadcasts every Sunday. Acc'd to posters in the avsforum, that is the same breakdown as last year.

Yep. I never had any games in SD. Not even doubleheaders.

I wish that was the case here. 1st Fox is not in HD on my cable, so there is half the games in SD, and in TERRIBLE SD at that. Then CBS would only broadcast 1 game of their doubleheader in HD, which is weird since I thought they recorded all games in HD. Hopefully this year CBS will change and Fox (actually the local owner) and Cox can come to an agreement.

Cusm, you should get DirecTV. If Fox truly does own your town's station, you could get a waiver for the LA feed in HD for Fox and you could get yours OTA, provided they are doing HD. Then you'd get even more games.
