As a football fan, I am wondering whether the MLS Direct Kick product will be offered in HD.
it was last yr,but as usual not every game in HD like we all hope.
I posted this elsewhere ... it may be good news. I'm excited about it.
HD was available last season, but there weren't a whole lot of teams that were broadcasting in HD. I watched a quite a few Sounders matches, just because their home games were in HD.
MLS made a mandate this season that the home team produce the game in HD, doesn't mean that the broadcast will be in HD.
So far the following announcements have been made:
KC Wizards, all in HD on an OTA
DC United, home in HD on CSN Washington
RB New York, home in HD on MSG
Seattle Sounders, all in HD OTAs
SJ Earthquakes, all in HD on CSN Cali and Bay Area
Columbus Crew none in HD on cable channel
Philly Union, home in HD on OTA
I've been monitoring schedules for TV info. I would assume that the LA Gals and Chivas will get at least home in HD, if not all on FSN West/PT.
The last I read on this (pretty sure on Bigsoccer) the HD feeds must be provided for Direct Kick. So I guess who knows what that will actually *mean*, but it's promising. Especially because ONN looks absolutely terrible.
DirecTV already has all the HD feeds I've listed and uses those. You prolly read my post on bigsoccer.
The OTAs, DirecTV will jsut move to a CONUS beam for the game, the RSNs are already CONUS, so those will be used more.
For example, if a game is on CSN Washington and KCs local channel, DirecTV will most likely use the CSN feed. However, if KC is the onyl feed, then they will duplicate the LiL on a CONUS beam
