Astros Going HD

 Spring Training notes from Alyson Footer on

Astros going HD: While announcing the 2008 Astros television schedule, FSN Houston revealed that all home games will be produced in high-definition. In addition, select road games will also be shown in high-def, carried on FSN HD and KTXH HD.

“We’ve made a commitment to give Houston sports fans what they’ve been asking for by continuing to increase our production of high-definition programming,” said new FSN Houston senior vice president/general manager Steve Tello. “Astros fans this year will enjoy more games in high-definition than ever before. Together with our new broadcast partner KTXH, our telecasts promise to be among the best in Major League Baseball.”

FSN HD is available to high-definition customers in Houston on Comcast Cable Channel 302, DirecTV Channel 639-1, and Dish Network Channel 366. KTXH-HD is available over-the-air and also is carried on DirecTV Channel 20-1. A complete Astros HD schedule will be announced later.

FSN Houston will carry 130 games and four Spring Training telecasts, while KTXH My 20 takes over as the new broadcast home for Astros baseball with a 31-game package.

So I guess this is the year I get serious about looking for an HDTV. Probably not going to happen until after the bar exam though.
