    Does any provider have espn2 hd yet? Maybe the only people who can watch it are the guys at the espn studio.

    Right now it does seem to be something akin to the tree falling in the lonely forest...

    DirecTV doesn't have ESPN 2 HD yet. Still waiting. Unless they JUST added it tonight.

    Thanks Adam.

    I did mean to ask if they got espn2HD yet.

    Of course they haven't. What is ESPN thinking? Has anyone looked at the programming schedule for ESPN's hd offerings? They don't have enough fill one channel with HD content. And we can only watch 3 and TILT so many times. Why would any provider bother to put up the extra cash for a HD channel that has so little programming. I really don't blame Dish or Direct for not rushing to get the duece HD on the air.
