Nothing in HD yet, nor anything listed as HD in the guide for the rest of the day, but at least it's not stretch-o-vision.

The baseball score program actually looked good for 4:3 SD.

Does anyone know why FSN FL wasnt added as a 24/7 hd channel today also? I thought it was supposed to be. Until basketball season FSN FL is really the only fl sports channel with hd content

FSN Florida will come along when DIRECTV is ready for it. They just aren't yet. The early list said it would be there, but you know... it is what it is.

It was listed as one of the ones as a roll out today, but I mentioned in another thread that I currently recieve FSN Florida HD fulltime through Comcast cable, and with the exception of about an hour prior to an HD game and about an hour afterwards its just an FSN Florida HD screen saver, so I dont actually think this channel is broadcasting "fulltime" in HD yet.

Yes, but with a lot of the Rays games not being broadcast in HD, I'd love to have them upconverted on an hd feed which isn't available to us right now because its a game only channel. Sun Sports on the other hand has no pro sports at all until basketball/hockey season with the exception of a few marlins games here and there.

This means the HEAT games will be HD (when in). but more importantly.. when the event ends, you dont need to run to change the channel to prevent any kind of screen burn (with the white/blue logo screen) after the games end.
