The FIFA World Cup 2006 is being broadcast entirely in hidef on ABC, ESPN and ESPN2. Unfortunately, the vast majority of games in group play (round one) are being broadcast on ESPN2. Comcast does not offer ESPN2 programming in hidef. Or at least they didn’t.
I called and complained. I’m sure others did too. Low and behold, I get up this morning to ensure I’ve correctly recorded the ESPN game for viewing later in the day and notice there is an ESPN2 channel (736) in the hidef lineup section. Huh? Sure enough, about six days late but Comcast must have realized their error and put ESPN2-HD in their lineup (ast least during the World Cup). Nice work.
