The following news release is from Fox Soccer:
"Fox Soccer Channel, Fox Sports Net (FSN) and Fox Soccer Plus will feature blanket coverage of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg, with eight live and exclusive English-language match telecasts in high-definition from March 9 through 17."
Will FIOS step up and add FSC HD in time for these matches????
Here is another recent news release:
Fox Soccer ready for World Cup, HDTV
"Broadcast giant Fox is ramping up coverage for the upcoming World Cup and is finally making the plunge into high definition.
For soccer and “football” fans in the U.S. and abroad, it’s about time. The world’s most beautiful game rarely looks like it in old-fashioned standard definition. Faces are blurry and the grass looks dull green.
Only problem is, Dish Network is the sole cable or satellite operator in the U.S. to start showing Fox’s soccer programs in HD. Negotiations are still ongoing with carriers such as DirecTV, Time Warner Cable and VERIZON FIOS. The hope is that they will add Fox’s high-def soccer channels to their lineups very soon."
"Soon" is NOW! Add FSC HD.
FWIW, this was posted at avsforum.com today:
