ESPN President, George Bodenheimer, announced plans to provide a high-definition simulcast service of its premier network, ESPN to be launched March 30, 2003.

ESPN HD will include 100 live telecasts in its first year featuring Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, and the National Hockey League -- produced and distributed in high-definition HDTV.

The resolution on ESPN HDTV will be 720p like parent company ABC. Where can you see ESPN in HDTV? This is no answer yet as ESPN is currently in negotiations with Cable and Satalite providers.

"ESPN is making a significant commitment to spur the growth of high-definition television," said Bodenheimer. "Sports will be a key driver of HDTV, and it is only fitting, that ESPN plays a leadership role in serving our fans, affiliates, advertisers and rights holders in advancing the adoption of digital technology."
