When you say free does that mean free to those who have digital cable, or does it mean free to those who have the digital gateway, or does it mean free for everyone that has an HD box? I bet it's only free for those who have digital cable. Also why is ESPN-HD going to be free and not Discovery? It doesn't make any sense to have all the channels free except one. With exception to the Movie channels.
My speculation is that they are making ESPN free so if it comes down to it they can pull it if the fight with ESPN and Fox Sports turns ugly. Remember one of the options is to have ESPN and Fox Sports be its own tear.
It's good to hear about InHD though.
Also has anyone heard if/when Fox Sports West is going to do HD?
