Digital tape (DV Tape) is not the same as HDTV. Digital tape just recorded the standard 480 lines clearer.

I watched a HD live broadcast in 1987, presented as a prototype, at a media fair in Berlin. That was analog HD. The system never went into production.

But what make you think that the original material is recorded in TV resolution?

Ahh, late 80's & early 90's HD... the recording and studio equipment was easy enough for producers to get, but playback equipment was rare and too expensive. Most of the time, digital HD content was downsampled to very high quality laserdisc media and played back on analog equipment capable of splitting the video signal into rgb components or at least Y-C separated luminance/chromanance signals. I had a rather massive Pioneer rear-projection TV that displayed somewhere around 650i resolution, if you could feed it a good enough signal. It had a hybrid analog/digital picture drive system that could display 16:9 aspect ratio if the input was generated correctly (or detectable as letterbox in 4:3) and it could crop/scale/stretch 4:3 almost undetectably to 16:9. Pretty impressive in the 90's! I kept it in use all the way through the digital HD conversion before finally changing over to a 720p plasma screen around 2010. By then, it was probably one of the last of its kind still in operation. The analog circuits had to be re-aligned periodically with a test pattern laserdisc, and it had a "service mode" that turned on an internal pattern generator to help align the picture tubes and digital processing that drove them. Nowhere near plug-and-play like modern digital TVs and monitors!
