I've seen the promos for ESPN and the MLB divisional playoff games, but have not heard whether any will be in HD. Does anybody have the inside scoop as to whether we will see them on ESPN-HD?

Ken?

Do you guys know if there is any chance for that?


Will FOX show them in wide 480p?


Who else has the rights this year?


Thanks.

No, only the World Series will be in widescreen.

rb,


FOX holds the rights to most, if not all, of the MLB postseason. And unless something changes, they won't be doing them in HD this year.

ESPN took over some games in the LDS when they bought the Family Channel from Fox.


For the LCS and World Series, it will be Fox Wide Screen

Can someone break the tie? Are both of the League Championship Series and the World Series going to be widescreen or only the World series. I've got to believe the LCS's will be in widescreen. :confused:

I've always assumed we'd see some ESPN HD coverage of the MLB playoffs, but I've also not heard anything. Let me ask.

Fox

- Fox will carry the 2003 World Series in Fox Widescreen.

- No official word is available about the other MLB playoff games on Fox. It should be noted AVS member foxeng works for a Fox affiliate and is privy to network information before it becomes public knowledge.


ESPN

- For the 2003 season, ESPN & ESPN2 will carry a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 14 MLB Divisional Playoff Games, highlighted by 3 primetime games.

- It's not known how many, if any, of these games will be in HDTV. I'm working on this as we speak.

As for FOX, only the World Series will be in widescreen. As for ESPN, that is up to them.

I am very disappointed in the fact that once the NFL season started, we haven't seen a single MLB game here or there on ESPN HD. Of course now that they are on Directv and Dish they don't have to try so hard and we are stuck with the two live events a week (not counting playmakers).


I sure hope they show some playoff action in HD - I was really counting on that when I signed up, I never thought that once football started that was the end of baseball on espnhd.

They've just chosen not to, and that stinks.

Don't forget that there is a Saturday night college game and Sunday night football every week. That uses up both trucks.

C'mon now guys, you're not being fair to poor little ol' ESP-NOT-HD. To expect more than 2 games a week in HD is really asking too much from a mega-corp. that takes our money every month. Be reasonable.

Here's an idea. Everyone who is disappointed with ESPN-HD should cancel it and tell D* or E* and ESPN that they cancelled due to a lack of HD content. If you are truly disappointed with ESPN-HD (which to me is worth it for Sunday Night Football in HD alone) vote with your pocketbook. Buying it, paying for it, and then complaining about it will have no effect.

That's exactly my point. They're on *Saturday* and *Sunday.* How hard would it be to have *one* of those trucks make it to a Wednesday day or night baseball game?


MnGuy: I love ESPN-HD for Sunday Night Football alone, too. That doesn't mean I won't ask for more from a service I'm paying for that has (seemingly) the capability of doing more. It's like having the right to complain about where my tax dollars go. :)
