    Just noticed that ESPNU and ESPNews are now in HD on Dish.

    That will certainly make me happier when basketball season rolls around next year! Heck even football.

    ESPN and 2 were. But not the U and News.

    I know it was a common complaint around here this season so I figured I'd brighten the spirits of a few folks! :)

    Did they used to be but they got bumped because of a dispute with Disney? I thought I remembered something about that.

    Did Disney channel get upgraded back to HD as well? I tell you what, watching Phineas and Ferb in standard def DID NOT FLY with my kids, part of the reason we switched to Direct. ;-)

    It will be based off your DISH account info. You sign in with your DISH account and that verifies your provider carries WatchESPN.

    Will HD be for all packages?

    I believe so. All packages that have ESPNU should have it in HD. At least that was my understanding.
