Thumbs up UEFA Champions League - HD on Sportsnet

Champions League in HD = Awesome

Finally Champions League group stage matches are available in HD. Both the Man United and Real Madrid games are being shown today in HD on Sportsnet.

Good on Sportsnet for picking up the coverage and for showing it in HD.... I can't say the same for TSN.

Thumbs up

I was very very pleasantly surprised when I saw this yesterday. Also, the fact that they were showing two different games, a big thumbs up!!

Finally some good CL coverage that's not tape delayed to 2 am.

I have to agree with everyone, the coverage is great especially with the different games shown. There is nothing better than watching footy in HD, even better with surround sound since it feels as if your in the stands. Hopefully, they'll broadcast the weekend games in HD one day.

What's everyones prediction for tonight's Inter vs Barca game. I think it will be a good tough game with Barca winning 1-0.

Because Sportsnet offers two games, I guess its only fair that each region gets one #1 game each matchday. Kind of the same thing that happened with TSN and TSN2 in the past, where you need digital or satellite to get a second game.

Sportsnet will broadcast the Premier League games in HD someday, whenever they are produced in HD over in the UK.

I think Inter wins 2-1 today.

Would be sweet if they show 4 games. I know it's asking for too much but it could be done. In some countries they show all 8 games.

I was surprised they put Inter v Barca on only on the West channels. I get all the Sportsnet channels so I like them dividing up matches - more choice. But I wonder how many other people in Canada get all of their channels. Maybe more than I'd originally suspected.

Pretty much everyone who has satellite or digital cable (at least with Rogers), don't know exactly what percentage of people that is.

It's sad that we have to be content with 2 or 3 soccer games during CL and Europa League. Direct Tv is offering [B]FREE[B] CL and Europa League and La Liga Games. The rest is on the sports pack package.

We soccer fan can only dream.....

That crackling noise during the Real Madrid game was annoying.
