After pioneering the launch of HD in India, Tata Sky today announced the launch of ESPN HD on its platform.

ESPN HD will be part of the HD Gold pack and will be made available just in time for India’s historic Formula One Grand Prix to be held this month. All subscribers who have currently subscribed to the HD Gold Pack will be able to enjoy the channel at no extra cost.

And compression on these channels will also reach an all time high. Might as well watch it in SD.

I hope that HD transmission will be ad-free. If ESPN can substitute Steve Slater, then it will be सोने पे सुहागा :p

It seems ESPN HD is telecasting some promo ads for every 5-6 laps for 10-15 secs....

In a way its good as SD channel shows around 1 min to 1.5 mins of ads for every 5-6 laps...
