    For sure ESPN knows that they have something that a significant minority will want.

    Right now I’m with DirectTV, but if Charter Cable or Dish comes up with this and my provider does not, I’ll switch as soon as my obligation is complete.

    As a dish network dealer, according to our dish network rep they will prolby have it. But it may be costly, possibly 15 dollars a month. I think it gonna be pretty lame if every new cable channel that goes HD is gonna charge you extra to view.

    I’m with Robert on this one. @ $15/mth, ESPN HD would have to all of my favorite sporting events in HD. And even then…

    Any service provider who gets an exclusive would be enough for me to switch—but not at that price point.
