3D Soccer on TV: How It Works

Champions League Watched By More Than The Super Bowl

Fox Soccer Channel "Available In HD"? Not Really
As I told you last week, FSC has started broadcasting in HD, but as EPL Talk points out in this article, that don't mean squat, if none of the carriers have the HD version in their line-up. From what I could piece together, my carrier, DirecTV, currently doesn't have the capacity to add the HD version of FSC. An additional satellite has been launched to increase the capacity, but that will not go online until "late first quarter or early second quarter 2010." Still no joy in HD-ville.
