My friends at the Colorado Springs AVS forum tell me KRDO/Channel 13 was broadcasting some of the football games and the Tournament of Roses Parade in bright, shiny high definition yesterday. I've called the station to see if they're in a testing phase or if this is the real deal. Either way, it's a good sign for the Super Bowl (not to mention for "Lost" fans).

If you have any money left over from Christmas, this would be the time to go get a new TV.

UPDATE: Just talked to Joe Reed, KRDO's chief engineer. He confirmed it's just going to be live events for the time being. That means yes to the Super Bowl, no to "Lost." A big step in the right direction, anyway.

UPDATED UPDATE: Just talked to Neil Klockziem, KRDO's general manager. He said the HD equipment arrived at the last minute and crews installed it on Saturday. The station is waiting for the equipment needed to rebroadcast primetime programming that's delayed for the Mountain time zone. Klockziem said the station should have that capability soon.

Awesome! I've been wondering why KRDO shows up in "high-def" under the menu in Adelphia but nothing is in hi-def. Hopefully tonight's Orange Bowl will be high-def!
