    So it's March 31 . We were told that ESPNU would be in HD .What is the reason
    that its not in HD yet ? I have had two price hikes on my program package with no new channels added . I pay $114 plus tax . And thats before all the extras .

    another broken promise by DirecTV.. what do you expect? They are sweeping this under the rug like they did the Vancouver Olympics.

    Was there an "official" promise by DirecTV?

    I think the original press release from 2009 said something like "end of 1st quarter 2010".

    I read on here that directv has room to turn on some new HD channel without useing D12 because the NFL Sundy Ticket season would be over to free up space .

    To those upset: What do you want? An apology? A lollipop? A hug? You'll get nothing.

    It's not here, everyone with a sense of reasoning knew it wouldn't be on, and Directv doesn't care how much we complain.

    I beg to differ. On the DIRECTV site it clearly states “now with the capacity for 200+ HD channels”

    While of course DirecTV dropped the ball here, it really doesn't matter as long as it in place for college football season. I highly doubt there is a lot of HD programs being shown on ESPNU right now. I bet it is less than 10% of their current programming this month is in HD.

    You are correct that they announced it would be available in the first quarter of 2010 [link], but they still have several hours to meet that deadline. :rolleyes:

    Unless theres more college hockey to be shown on ESPNU (the frozen four is on ESPN2), I dont care until college football season.

    I mean, what the hell are they gonna show between now and then? College Baseball? Baseball is the sport that requires HD for enjoyment the least.

    I love how people throw around the term "broken promise" as if DirecTV actually promised something.

    When they made the announcement I am sure they had every intention of airing ESPNU HD by March 31st. But going into a nerdrage hissy fit over DirecTV not being able to predict the future and delaying a few things for a month or so is ridiculous.

    Actually, D12 is not up and running yet, nor in it's projected broadcast location. That is a statement of fact. Just because D* has advertised that they NOW HAVE the capacity for 200 channels does not seem related to D12's status.
