The first NHL game in HDTV was broadcast last night (October 4, 2001) with an amazing 1080I picture. Keeping in mind that the format of HDTV is just really starting to take off, this broadcast was very significant to sports fans (at least the ones with the most high tech TVs) all around the country tuned into Channel 199 on DirecTV to watch the action between the LA Kings and the Phoenix Coyotes.

Could The US War on Terrorism Mean A Peak In Home Entertainment Sales? September 11, 2001, changed everything.

The general population, Americans especially, are more likely than ever to stay at home looking for entertainment since the World Trade Center and Pentagon tragedies.

Staying at home seems safe and watching TV helps the world deal with its pain and anger over such unthinkable acts.

It is that time of year again. It is the time for a new season of NHL Hockey. Just think about it…. the blood, the guts, the scoring action, the playoff race – I can’t stand the anticipation. This year the ante has been upped by broadcasting pioneer and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban. For the 2001-02 season 65 NHL games will be broadcast in high quality HDTV on HDNet, channel 199 on DirecTV. Tonight’s game featuring the Los Angeles Kings versus the Phoenix Coyotes (10:30 EST) is the first of the broadcasts.

Panasonic introduced their new PT-50PD3 HDTV plasma TV today which boasts the claim of having the highest contrast of any plasma to date at 3000:1. Contrast is a key issue in flat panel designs with one of the biggest knocks on the super-slender monitors being their lack of black levels as compared to traditional CRT TVs. The PT-50PD3 is HDTV capable for both 720p and 1080I sources and is priced at $15,995.
