Sabres home telecasts go HD

Ask, and ye shall receive.

On the video scoreboard thread, a reader wondered what the installation of a new high-definition system in HSBC Arena would mean for Sabres telecasts this season. The reader theorized that an HD scoreboard wouldn't be of any use without HD cameras and the other equipment that would be compatible with producing broadcasts.

So I had the chance to ask around at the arena today, and learned the Sabres will televise their home games only in HD. Although road games will remain in standard definition for now, more and more away dates will be upgraded in future seasons.
