Last year Directv ran a HD Channel for the masters golf coverage on Thursday and Friday. Does anyone know if they are going to do that this year? I am sure it is no a bandwidth issue as they are able to show 5 football games in HD at the same time but we cannot get ESPN2 HD. But I guess that is another issue.

I believe UHD will carry it Friday and Saturday but CBS will carry Sundays broadcast, all in HD

I was able to pick up the Master's in HD on the off air antenna on Thursday and Friday. It looks awesome. We had a nasty storm come through Central Florida on Thursday and the regular satellite went out for 10 minutes or so, but the off air stayed on the whole time with only a minor interruption. My favorite two sports to see in HD now are football and golf on CBS. They both look incredible.
