Notice the difference? Analog picture on the left, HDTV on the right. Many of us know Comcast has an interest in televising the NHL on a national level. This article, although a few days old explains why hockey is so good in HD. I have a HDTV and swear by it, the difference is well worth the additional cost, especially if you are a sports fan. From AudioRevolution,
On television, no sport gets more benefit from HDTV than hockey. The contrast of a gleaming white surface and a fast moving black puck is inherently hard for the new fan to watch on traditional TV. Increase the resolution to 1080i and the motion is easier to follow and the puck is easier to see. The more rectangular shape of the movie theater-like 16:9 aspect ratio screen is much more analogous to the rink than a virtually square 4:3 television screen.See comments for additional pictures.
