HDNet to Carry Major League Baseball
Posted 28 March 2002 - 06:47 AM
The 2002 HDNet MLB broadcast schedule begins with the Detroit Tigers-Minnesota Twins game on April 13.
HDNet, which is on DirecTV channel 199, originally reached an agreement with MLB in September 2001 to broadcast 12 games to viewers in HD format for the reminder of the 2001 season.
"Watching an MLB game in high definition is the next best thing to being in the ballpark," said Mark Cuban, co-founder of HDNet. "We had great success broadcasting Major League Baseball games during the last month of the 2001 season, and we look forward to working with MLB and Fox Sports Net to bring fans more exciting HDTV baseball action in 2002."
HDNet produces its MLB game broadcasts in conjunction with certain Fox Sports Net regional outlets, sharing audio and graphics with FSN's standard definition production units.

I watched some hockey broadcasted in HD, the hockey didn't look as good as I thought it would.
