Carriage of ESPN-HD is still spotty around the nationâ€™s cable systems, but it appears that itâ€™s enough to have Fox Sports Net considering high-definition services in selected markets.
The potential move is said to be prompted by a fear that ESPN-HD would give ESPN a leg up in dealing with some national advertisers.
Executives from FSN were making inquiries into HD gear at the recent National Association of Broadcasters convention, and the foray into HD wouldnâ€™t be without precedent.
HDNet has supplied hardware and crews for HD productions of regional FSN events.
