    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. ;-)

    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.
