    They are part time but the ESPN Alternates do count as added basic HD, yes?

    Yeah was great to be able to watch 4 different baseball games in HD without having to get EI. :) ESPN should do it every Sunday, Monday and Wednesday in the regular season instead of only showing the Yankees or Phillies.

    It's 2011, all sports should be available in HD. DirecTV should be ashamed of themselves for not offering GP and FC in HD. We shouldn't have to pay for GP and FC at all either, they're mostly unimportant non-conference games with small schools, which are free on ESPN3 anyway.

    As long as they are active more than they aren't, they should be.

    If they're substantially sharing with other content, not so much.

    Why DirecTv should be ashamed of themselves? Does ESPN provides GP or FC in HD to any provider? I am not aware of it....

    And, as far as I can remember, it's a free country, so if you don't want GP or FC because they are free on espn3, then don't pay for GP or FC! :nono2:

    Back to topic, looking forward to the 4th qtr 2011 thread! Hopefully a few more basics will be added!

    Okay well ESPN should be ashamed of themselves then. I don't pay for them either, I have Comcast Internet, but all of my teams are in HD for every game anyway. It's just dumb to charge for something that people can get free legally elsewhere.

    You are paying for the service they provide not the content. (Or possibly the content too, if ESPN is charged for it.)

    Cheers,

    well having the room for 4 HD feeds on espn / espn 2 / espn alt / espn 2 alt.

    Is better then in 2010 where the alt feeds where SD only.

    I agree. I was talking about GP and FC though.

    Well all I want is BBCA, The CW, and Fargo's Local channels in HD. I wonder how many quarters will go bye before another of those wishes gets filled.
