Best Buy would have to have a Directv 4K set up in order to see it.That would be awesome if it was. Would make an extended shopping trip to Best Buy and watch it on one of their display 4K sets. I have never seen 4K in action, but am afraid if it looks as good as people have said my impulse buying would kick in!.
some markets may not have any local spots but there are some not that they are any good.I heard it has to do with local commercials. I honestly don't remember any local commercials during the game last year. But if thats the case, couldn't DIRECTV insert them like they do with the "cable channels"? Of course that would probably take a lot of planning.
They have used 4k cameras for a while..games get downrezzedHonestly, I haven't heard anything either. It's not like they couldn't do a 4k broadcast, but with all of those cameras, it would be one hell of a nightmare to figure out.
When was the first hd superbowl?One of my contacts from AT&T / DIRECTV emailed me overnight and said at this time there are no plans to offer the SuperBowl in 4K. While not an official response from their PR department, I do trust this source.
According to Wikipedia it's XXXIV in 2000 on ABC (720p). NFL uploaded the game on their YouTube page but it was only in SD so who knows if they saved it in HD.
