I have been subscribing to HBO for about four years. Before switching my provider from FIOS (damned Verizon sold to Frontier Communication, and everything went to crap) to DirectTV, I had it in glorious 1080P, saved on my DVR. But there was no way to make a copy from it to a blu-ray disc.
Anybody know where I can get a copy of this in high def? ESPN has replayed basically the same thing as "A Football Life: Vince Lombardi"; I believe HBO and NFL Films partnered for the doc. It's out there, but it's pretty bad quality. If HBO or NFL Films ever sold the danged thing, I'd pay for it. But they don't. Of course, the NFL licensed out to a company that felt the Packers 2010 season highlight disc didn't need a release on blu-ray, either, though all the other post season editions for the three seasons before, and every one since, have been.
If any of you guys have a lead on where I could get one-even 720P is fine-I'd appreciate it. I watched this thing constantly, and now I'm really missing it. I've got HBO's docs on Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle still saved, and I own the Yankees three pack of DiMaggio, Ruth and Mantle on DVD.
