Ok, so you might not be able to get the Super Bowl in
HD via your
cable provider, but if you live near an ESPNZone you are in luck. The ESPNZone's in New York, Las Vegas, Washington,
D.C., and Baltimore are all going to be fully high definition in time for the big game February 5th. Now word on the
exact equipment or resolutions, but ESPN is going with Philips LCD's, plasmas and projectors.
The upgrade is more than just screens however, as each location is equipped with HD-compatible satellite and cable receivers, not to mention all the cabling and switching equipment that had to be upgraded. Chicago, Anaheim, Atlanta and Denver ESPNZone's won't be ready in time for the Super Bowl, but will be upgraded later this year.
I've never been to one of these, but I've driven past the Las Vegas location so many times in PGR3 I feel like I have. Any HDBeat readers planning on getting their 720p fix at ESPNZone?
