2007 is shaping up to be the real year for HD, as more networks announce plans to launch HD channels than ever before. While DirecTV waits for it's new birds to launch, cable operators try to figure out a way to fit all the new channels in their lineup. This week the big news is for BigTen college sports fans, not only are they getting a new network that will exclusively cover their conference, but most of the programming will be presented in our favorite format. Programming highlights include 35+ football games per season, 105+ basketball games and Big Ten championship events. Now we just have to wait to see who will carry the new channel.
