Just saw an ad on ESPN that claimed the Pro Bowl would be on ESPNHD...Is their any confirmation of this? The website says nothing about it and I know there are many logistical problems producing Live programming in HD from Hawaii.

Yeah this is very interesting. I have a nice schedule of HD events that ESPN mailed to DTV customers and it says nothing about the pro bowl. What about it, Ken, any info?

Do those 2 trucks include ABC production capability? We already saw with the Sugar Bowl that ABC/ESPN sharing HD prodcution equipment is an option... I guess it helps that they are owned by the same company :)

Kudos to NHK for getting those HDCAM's up to Antarctica. The games in Foxboro, MA were a breeze compared to the temperatures in Antartica. ;)

It will be on ESPNHD but not in HD. Just like most of their programming. This goes back to the many threads about how ESPN confuses/misleads consumers regarding there HD offerings. It's like HBO saying "Inside the NFL" will air tonight on HBOHD. It is a true statement, just not in HD.

Yeah, but ESPN doesn't advertise that something will be on ESPN-HD unless it's in HD... At least that's how it's been in the past...

Lost in all this is the fact that the Pro Bowl is the worst all star game of any of the major sports.
