Altitude HD

Adelphia is now airing some of Altitude Sports' Nuggets and Avalanche games in high definition. It's on Channel 703, if you subscribe to Adelphia's HD package. The first HD broadcast was Saturday's Avs-Nuggets matchup.

I'm not a huge hockey fan, but if there's one sport that benefits most from high definition, hockey's it. The difference is huuuge. It's like when Fox introduced the glowing puck a few years ago. Except, you know, not entirely stupid. Football in HD ain't too shabby, either.

Speaking of HD, KOAA/Channels 5&30 and KRDO/Channel 13 are both supposed to/rumored to be/working toward getting their HD broadcasts up in the next month or so (KKTV/Channel 11 and KXRM/Channel 21 are both already broadcasting in HD). Whether that means we'll be getting the Super Bowl and the Olympics in high def, it's too soon to say.

We'll have more in the Gazette when they give us firm dates, but if you're looking for a ridiculously expensive last-minute Christmas gift, this may be a good time to spring for the plasma screen.

CORRECTION: I think I meant "Avs-Islanders matchup" -- although anybody who wouldn't pay good money to see the Nuggets out on the ice in skates is no sports fan. I get a big grin just thinking of Carmelo Anthony in the crease.

Good news about KRDO, and Adelphia HD although it doesn't help DirecTV folks.

"Avs-Nuggets" matchup? How is that possible?? :)

When did Altitude begin to air games in HD (just this season or last as well)
