Major League Baseball and HDNet (channel 199 on DirecTV), the all-high definition sports and entertainment network, have finalized plans to broadcast 80 Major League Baseball games in High Definition during the 2002 regular-season. The 2002 HDNet MLB broadcast schedule begins with the Detroit Tigers-Minnesota Twins game on April 13.

While 80 total games is a relatively small number in comparison to the 160 games played by each major league team, HDNet’s deal will give HDTV early adopters more of the beautifully shot programming they crave. And much like the 2002 winter Olympic coverage by HDNet, these 80 games may help build both an increasing base of HDTV viewers as well as spark more interest in HDTV with the TV networks and league execs with the major sports.

“We are continually striving to take advantage of new broadcasting technologies in order to provide our fans with the most exciting Major League Baseball coverage” said Tim Brosnan, Executive Vice President, Business for Major League Baseball. “This agreement with HDNet will give Major League Baseball fans the chance to watch their favorite teams and players in the highest-quality broadcast format available."

HDNet, the world’s only national network broadcasting all HD, all the time, produces its MLB game broadcasts in conjunction with certain Fox Sports Net regional outlets, sharing audio and graphics with FSN’s standard definition production units.

The April live broadcast schedule is listed below (all times are Eastern). The HDNet Web site at www.hd.net lists additional games through May.
