Well, I imagine that the local affiliates do not have 15 year agreements with ESPN SN. Plus DirecTV may bring them in HD eventually. You could also try an antenna setup.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

As to HD, the SEC Network station in my area has always been the best run station in the area. First will all new technologies back as long as I can remember. It is NBC.

And it carries all material other than NBC in SD. SEC games, Jeopardy, WOF, Oprah, etc. All are feed in HD, all are broadcast in SD.

The station said that it has one HD receive system, which NBC provided and which NBC requires be locked on NBC. It would have to buy another HD system to provide syndicated material in HD. That is, according to the station, several years away. The other stations in this market are certainly years behind that. No local station has ever shown anything in HD not from its network.

My local station is run by Sinclair Broadcast Group. I wrote to them asking if there were any plans to go HD over D*... Not even the courtesy of a response.

Sinclair illegally owns two stations in my area (ABC and Fox). It is the worst ownership group in broadcasting. Arrogant, unresponsive, rude, and greedy.

The sad thing is that if I started my own 4 watt radio station the FCC would have me slammed to the pavement and in jail within a week, but Sinclair has been in open violation of the law in two dozen markets for 15 years, and they do nothing about it.

last year I watched my local Raycomm channel on OTA in High Def. I was just glad the game was in HD, not some crappy SD lite from the beginning of time.

I just flipped ahead on my Directv On screen guide to Sept 5 and a couple things showed up

1. the SEC game on FSN South, Sun Sports and FSN SW have HD logos :D
2. the SEC on CSS game is on ch 630 Comcast SportsNet New England HD no HD logo but in the schedule, hopefully games won't be blacked out on that channel here
3. no HD logo on the early regional game but didn't have one last year even though they were in HD

some thoughts on yesterday's coverage
I was at the Hogs game vs Missouri St so I didn't get a chance to watch much of the other SEC games
but the HD quality of the SEC Network game was outstanding
Directv needs to add ESPNU NOW!!! SD is bad enough but the U's PQ is terrible!!!!!!!!!

AGREED! We should have had ESPNU in HD on DirecTv LAST year. Come On DirecTv get with the show. They also need to move ESPNU's Channel down to where the ESPN Channels are around Channel 210 or 211 where the other ESPN Channels reside.
