    Hi all,

    I just purchased ESPNU about a week ago for the college basketball games. I have tuned in about 3 nights, including tonight, and every game and ads, etc. are all SD - I have not seen a single HD channel broadcast. I am looking at around channels 720-723. Am I looking in the right place, or is this just SD since it's usually smaller college broadcasts? If it's SD only I am going to cancel...

    Thanks for your help!

    Its actually called ESPN Full Court and yes its SD only, ESPNU is only 1 channel and its HD on 208. Unfortunately, once the season starts the package can't be canceled...

    http://www.directv.com/sports/fullcourt

    Notice at the bottom if you click "Additional Details" the terms and conditions state: Sports subscriptions cannot be canceled, transferred, refunded, or credited (in part or in whole) after the season starts.

    Oops you are right Joe, I meant Full Court.

    Thanks for the reply. As a result, I called DTV just now. That's ridiculous in 2012 to have a premium sports channel that's all SD. I told them I was cancelling and would like a full refund. They told me to check for it on my account in 72 hours, it would be removed and refunded!

    Thanks for your help.

    Your welcome. If you have an Xbox 360 and a ISP that supports ESPN3 you can watch all the Full Court games through it and there very good quality, widescreen and very close to HD much better then SD lite on Directv and no additional charge. Also, the Xbox 360 app was just updated yesterday and now supports WatchESPN although only a few providers offer that.

    Thanks. I see some but not all of the games are on ESPN3 on the Internet also.

    Just to follow up, I got an email confirming a credit of $110 on my account just now!
