More 2006 Cards TV News – 28 Games in HD

Between them, Fox Sports Midwest (17 games) and KPLR WB11 (10 games) will televise 27 regular games in high-definition this season. ESPN and Fox will add even more.

Admit it. You are either dying to test out your new 42" plasma HDTV on the 2006 Cardinals or perhaps need the final bit of justification to finally make the big purchase. Either way, you now have what you need.

Fox Sports Midwest and KPLR WB11 have announced the specific Cardinals games to be broadcast in the ultra-realistic viewing format this coming regular season.

Between the 17 midweek HD games on FSNM and the ten weekend tilts on KPLR, many Cardinals fans will get the treat of seeing at least 1/6 of the regular season in high definition. Also, note the home opener of the new Busch on April 10 is part of the HD package.

Add to that the potential of HD coverage of at least three games on ESPN, including Sunday night, April 9 from Wrigley Field, plus Fox Network's eight Saturday games and that should be enough to push you over the acquisition edge.

Those who subscribe to the MLB Extra Innings package on cable and satellite should check your schedules, but with proper HD equipment, many of these games should be available in that viewing format also.
