    FWIW, my DirecTV guide data shows HD.

    Seriously though, this day and age I can't see getting HD cameras for this show to be THAT expensive any more. Heck, we carry HD cameras around in our POCKETS these days. Yeah, I know a pro camera costs a lot more than what's on our cell phones, but I can't see them being THAT expensive anymore. And it's a one time expense, that I'm sure could be subsidized fairly easy like they do on a sports show. (HD provided by Sony....that sort of thing).

    To me, there's no excuse any more.

    Yeah, they really need to catch up to The Amazing Race. They had all those same excuses for shooting in SD but they eventually did the right thing and upgraded. But then they have better ratings, no? ;)

    But, this has been the same excuse (in general, not aiming this at you) that's been used for YEARS now. If they had been planning and budgeting appropriately, there's no way they, a huge revenue generating empire, couldn't have been able to be finally there with all cameras swapped out for HD.

    As we've argued about in years past, it's not just cameras. There's a lot more infrastructure and computer power and hard drive space needed for HD over SD. Even rolling your eyes at that, the editing/rendering time may be a constraint for HD over SD on a show with such a quick turnaround. Who knows what the bottom line is with CBS?

    That's because CB freak-en S pushes back the start time due to sports. With exception of Survivor finale I refuse to watch anything on CBS that runs on a Sunday because I'm tired of having to pad by up to 90 minutes to ensure I don't miss anything. I buy the show via iTunes, commercial free.

    I love HD and have had HD for many years. I don't care that much that BB is still in SD.

    There is always Glass House in HD. :)

    I'm kindof over it not being in HD, I'll be shocked if they ever go HD.

    Halfway in, and I'm diggin' this group - new and old. Looks like it will be a lot of fun to see who/what's real!

    Just my two cents for any on the fence. :)

    If Big Brother UK can do HD (they began last year), the US should be able to do it. :)
