NEW YORK and DALLAS – HDNet announced its schedule for exclusive national

HDTV coverage of the MLS Cup Playoff series, including both Conference

Championship matches the weekend of November 5 and 6. HDNet’s coverage

begins Friday, October 22 with the first postseason match featuring the Los

Angeles Galaxy (No. 2 seed) at the Colorado Rapids (No. 3 seed) at 9:30 p.m.

ET, live from Invesco Field in Denver.

On Saturday, October 30, HDNet continues its Conference Semifinal coverage

with Game 2 of the Eastern Conference series between the MetroStars (No. 3

seed) and D.C. United (No. 2 seed), who will meet again following Sunday

night’s regular season finale in which 15-year-old rookie sensation Freddy

Adu had two assists in a heated match between the bitter rivals.

On November 5 and 6, HDNet will wrap up its second season of “MLS on HDNetâ€

with exclusive national high-definition coverage of both the Eastern and

Western Conference Championships. A final schedule of matchups and dates

will be determined pending the results of the Conference Semifinals.

"For the second consecutive season, MLS fans watching the regular season

games on HDNet have been treated to an incredible high-definition

experience, and we are pleased that HDNet will continue to give our league

the national coverage throughout the MLS Cup Playoffs,†said MLS

Commissioner Don Garber.

"HDNet will be the only place for soccer fans to watch the exciting live

action of both Conference Finals in high-def, so we encourage people to call

their cable or satellite provider today to sign up for HDNet," said Mark

Cuban, co-founder and president of HDNet. "Watching in HDTV is the best way

to see the players up close, follow the movement on the entire field, and

feel the playoff energy right from home."

Announcers Glenn Davis and Marcelo Balboa will handle the play-by-play and

color commentary for these games, as they have all season for HDNet.

HDNet will also produce a special program, “MLS Behind the Net: 2004 Season

in Review,†featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the 2004 season, including

interviews with both players and coaches.

The live broadcast schedule is listed below (all times are Eastern). Please

This forum is about HDTV, not "TV". Go troll somewhere else.

Do people actually watch soccer on HDTV? :D

I won't, but I think it's cool they're offering it for those who enjoy the sport. No need to shout about it in the thread title, though.

Even if you don't like soccer you should still check it out. As we know HDNet does the best HD broadcasts of pretty much anything. They raised the bar on MLS games. The crowd is constantly in the rear speakers with the announcers in the front and you can hear the fans chanting, banging drums and blowing horns. I think its better than CBS 5.1 (don't get ABC 5.1 yet). Just spend about 20 minutes and you'll notice. PQ is amazing also.

not only does HDnet coverage look fantastic but the overall game coverage is the best i've seen/heard in this country!! Marcello Balboa gives A-1 color commentary & i can't wait for the playoffs to get intense!! and no worries of HDnet pre-empting any part of the games to cover Little League WS!!!

I'm excited that their showing some of the playoff games on HDnet, their coverage is always fantastic. But I'm a little dissapointed that they had to pick the dc united home game I already have tickets too. HDnet should know this and broadcast the home game for the metro stars instead!
