From the Montana Television Network:
Beginning with the September 17 Big Sky opener against Eastern Washington, MTN will broadcast Montana football games in high definition. The HD format has become a staple of sports broadcasting and Montana will join the ranks of major colleges with HD productions.
"Viewers have been asking for an HD broadcast and we're proud to provide it to them" said Hermes. "This is the sort of quality Montana athletics and Montana viewers deserve and I'm sure fans across the state will enjoy the crisp clear signal high definition provides."
Talk about long-time-coming. Griz fans have been waiting for the upgrade for years and were especially embarrassed after Montana State games started getting the HD treatment on ABC affiliates. Now the Griz and CBS have leveled the playing, er, viewing field.
Today's kickoff is at 1 p.m.
