It's hard to say, especially with a change in ownership at Directv in the works. I'd like to be more optimistic, but I'd say there's a 50-50 chance of getting ESPN HD before the start of Sunday Night Football. I'm hoping for ESPN HD, Discovery HD and Cinemax HD being available by the end of the year, but who knows at this point.
"Any ideas when DTV will get ESPN HDTV ?" Question from JMarino
As you can tell from posts on this forum, we HD fanatics are a very impatient lot. It's been all of 22 days since the launch of ESPN-HD, but to many of us it seems like an eternity. Unfortunately, I'm reminded of info from our moderator several weeks back when I believe he said in essence it could be Mar. 30 -- now of course a missed date -- June 30, or even Sept. 30. The only sure thing seemed to be DTV would get it in the future. So I guess we need to continue trying to be patient, I stupidly counsel.
