Not that this second gripe is with DTV but ABC Sports has got to be the worst. 3 top games on Saturday and not one of them is in HD.
Mich v. ND - nope
Iowa v. Iowa State - nope
and worst of all Texas v. OSU - NOPE
If ABC can't get their act together and start giving people games in HD when ESPN can they should just resign from their contract.
What a terrible weekend of HD for me.
This post was made a year ago, (2005), by Hawkeye7, and all of the same college games will be played this year and broadcast in stunning high definition.
ABC has Texas Vs. Ohio St. at 7 pm on September 9. ESPN HD will show Iowa at Iowa St. on Sept. 16th at 11 am. And NBC will show Michigan vs. Notre Dame at 2:30 pm on Sept. 16th.
Since ABC isn't carryng Monday Night Football anymore, they are putting more into college football. Every Saturday they will broadcast a primetime game in high definition.
Notre Dame plays 3 times this year; at Georgia Tech, (Sept. 2), at Michigan St. (Sept. 23rd), and at USC (Nov. 25th).
USC will play 3 times, (Notre Dame, Cal, and Nebraska), and UCLA during championship week at 3:30 Chicago time, (no mention on whether it'll be in HD or not).
Michigan could play 3 times, (Notre Dame, Penn State, Minnesota maybe)
Ohio State could also play 3 times (Texas, Iowa, Minnesota maybe).
So, last year ABC only broadcasted the bowl games and conference championship games in High def. This year they are adding their primetime games, and I'll bet they'll even have some of the big games in HD this year too. Putting this with their broadcast of the ACC and Big 12 championship games and the Rosebowl, they are putting together a nice High Def. line up. So with CBS broadcasting everyweek in high definition the SEC games of the week, and NBC showing the Notre Dame home games you're bound to see a lot of HD college football broad cast over the air this year.
If you've got cable it gets ever richer, because of ESPN HD and ESPN 2 HD now offered by Comcast. Both these channels are going to have a couple of games each week in HD. We're steping in the age of High Definition here, and the networks are satisfying the demands of the patrons who enjoy their service.
I think that all if not most of the Bears games this year are going to be in High Definition on Fox and NBC, as they were last year with Fox and CBS. Its going to be a great fall, I feel like we're getting a treat. I can't hardly wait!
