Sports fans who have stepped up to the plate and purchased an HDTV video system will be rewarded on Saturday September 7, 2002. CBS will broadcast 12 consecutive hours of sporting events including College Football and U.S. Open tennis tournament coverage. Dubbed "Super Saturday" the HD coverage begins with the U.S. Open Men's Semi finals, scheduled to be broadcast from 11:00 AM- 5:00 PM. CBS will then broadcast the Miami vs Florida NCAA college football game between from 5:00 PM- 8:30 PM, followed by coverage of U.S. Open Ladies Finals, which starts at 8:30 PM-11:00 PM.

Viewers, whether watching HDTV or standard definition television, will see the same action, as the broadcasts will be part of a single, unified production with the same camera angles and announcers.

On Saturday evening when the last tennis match is over, if you’ve still got the HD buzz going, remember to mark your calendar for next week’s big premiere of The Sopranos 4th season. HBO will first broadcast the critically acclaimed series in HD on HBO on Sunday September 15 at 9:00 PM eastern on HBO High Definition East.

One of the biggest complaints by early adopters of HDTV is the lack of quality content, but these moves by HBO, CBS and other HD supporters such as Mark Cuban with his HD Net are directly addressing these concerns. Prices have been falling on HD ready televisions and with an increase in the amount of quality of content available this holiday season, it may be the time that HD goes mainstream.
