    Dish - ESPN Family

    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! :)

    Re: Dish - ESPN Family

    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. ;-)

    Actually yes.. DisneyEast is now HD. Time to record some new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the boys!

    Double win for my family!

    Lots of good stuff coming to Dish customers through new ESPN deal -- including WatchESPN app.

    http://espnmediazone.com/us/press-re...ing-agreement/

    "Additionally, for the first time, DISH customers will be able to access Disney’s authenticated live and video-on-demand products, including WatchESPN, WATCH Disney, WATCH ABC Family and WATCH ABC using Internet devices in the home and on the go."

    So all of their customers will get a password for watch ESPN I'm assuming or how will that work?

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

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