HD Sportsman June 7-13 – World Cup Edition

Jun 8, 2010 by

hdsports_6-7

Finally, a respite from the relative lack of events as the FIFA 2010 World Cup kicks off in South Africa on Friday. ESPN2 and ABC have coverage all weekend, and the ESPN Networks and ABC will carry the event to its conclusion on July 11. Elsewhere, the Stanley Cup will be decided this week on NBC and the NBA Finals continue on ABC. One note on the World Cup Coverage, ESPN’s site doesn’t indicate HD coverage, but it’s my understanding that all games will be carried in HD. If that’s not enough for you, ESPN3 (formerly ESPN360.com) will carry nearly all the games online as well.

SPOTLIGHT
ABC’s coverage of what may be the biggest game of the opening round of the World Cup when England and the United States square off on Saturday. Coverage starts at 1:30 p.m. (720p).

Here’s the rest of the week, big games in BOLD.
