So we'll have to wait on the HD announcements.
What a coincidence, was just looking today to see if ND games were going to be on HD this year ('99 Grad). Awaiting my Samsung 5668 on pre-order from TVA Powerbuy, and just got the confirmation call a few days ago. Hopefully it arrives before the season starts! After 1.5 years of researching HD tvs, I guess I picked the right time to buy! :)
I checked ABC and ESPN info....found the same that RemyM did for ABC. 3 games...one of which will be the Miami at FSU game...the other 2 have not been named. I'm guessing they'll wait until later in the season and pick the best match-ups to put in HD.
The ESPN/ABC Press release also says, and I quote "Every ESPN Saturday and Thursday prime-time telecast -- ESPN College Football Saturday (for the third consecutive year) and ESPN College Football Thursday (for the second straight year), respectively, will be offered in high definition on ESPN HD. For the first time, every ESPN2 College Football Saturday game will be offered in high definition on ESPN2 HD. " So it looks like there are going to be a ton of ESPN games in HD....good for all CFB fans! Too bad most of the ND (away) games are on ABC. :(
But GREAT news about NBC! Thanks radiocranium and George Thompson for the info and the confirmation. I'm surprised it's taken NBC this long...given the exclusive television contract and all. They spent a chunk of money to put lights on ND stadium during the renovation, you'd think they'd invest in the high dollar camera equip and trucks for their only college football presence and one of the cornerstones of their sports coverage (always mention "Notre Dame Football" when running their ads for NBC sports).
I can't wait for the start of the season!
