Are you saying that the ESPNU studio, graphics, etc are all HD when they go to the look in (as if the whole setup is been produced in HD just not distributed) or just the feed from the game is HD?


There were ESPNU graphics on top of the HD game - like the transition graphic was the U logo going into the game. I did notice though that the graphics stayed inside the 4:3 center of the 16:9 game though.

That makes sense, it just means that ESPNU's graphics haven't been redone in 16:9 HD, since the channel doesn't exist yet.

As more games are being shown on ESPN-U, I do hope that we see at least an update to HD soon. I suspect that at some point we will.

Is there any hope to get this channel in HD? It's been frustrating to watch basketball on this horrible SD channel ... and its been even more frustrating because I've noticed that when ESPN / ESPN2 have been doing "live look ins" to the game on ESPNU - the game is shown in HD on ESPN/ESPN2 ... so the game is in HD already!


ESPNU will be HD in August according to Multichannel News today.

Enjoying AT 250 HBO,
