ESPN, ABC to Play in HD Bowl

ESPN HD, ESPN2 HD and ABC Sports HD are ready for college football’s bowl season.

The three HD services will air 24 postseason bowl games in HD Dec. 20-Jan. 4, concluding with the Rose Bowl -- which will decide the BCS national championship -- Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. (EST).

“Offering 24 bowl games in high-definition raises the bar and emphatically demonstrates our HDTV leadership,” ESPN and ABC Sports president George Bodenheimer said in a prepared statement. “From affiliates of ABC to distributors of ESPN HD and ESPN2 HD, and along with current and future sponsors, the message is clear: ESPN and ABC Sports are delivering the future of sports and technology.”
