Comcast Users: 1st half not in HD?
According to the Big Ten Network website and the Comcast guide, Big Ten Network will be showing Indiana/Akron from 6pm-9pm on channel 67 or 256(HD). They will be showing NIU/Minnesota from 9pm-1030pm on those same channels. The full game is on the secondary Big Ten channel, 692. Not a huge deal, but still sad that the first half wont be HD.

Good grief, who cares. Just be glad you can see the game if you want to unlike the old days when there was maybe one or two telecasts a year.

I haven't looked at my TV listing but I'd be disappointed if the first half was in SD as well. Maybe you haven't watched a SD football game in a while but it looks like **** compared to HD.

It's not like he said "I'm not watching the game if it's not in HD". I can be thankful that the game is televised and disappointed that it's not in HD at the same time. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Yeah, seriously. I'm going to be watching in a 4" square pixilated computer window because I won't pay Dish Network $6 a month for BTN.

I am very glad that I am able to see the game. Heck, I watched the Tennessee game(among others) the last 8 years on a crappy computer screen. I will be watching no matter what; just thought it was interesting info for those that enjoy HD. I don't even have an HDTV, but I always watch HD on my standard def TV whenever I can. Once you get used to it, it is really hard to go back. Anyways, GO HUSKIES!!

It's just for BTN and CSN. I was going to get it for the Cubs but I stopped watching them in May. There's another sports package that includes more for $10. Regardless, seeing as I wrote my state congressman to try and prevent BTN from forcing their way onto basic Comcast, I'm really not eager to give a penny to the BIg 10/11/12
