Why Isn't ABC NBA Playoffs in HD?

Hello to anyone that will listen...why isn't ABC NBA Playoffs in HD? ESPN, owned by ABC, etc., is broadcasting many in HD? Why can't ABC? Frustrating......

I was wondering that same question myself. even last night's game, heat/wash was not in hd

Which will probably mean that the finals will not be in HD either. What's w/that?! :mad:

ABC should be broadcasting the finals in HD. If you remember during the college football season that none of the regular season games were in HD. They did broadcast their bowl games in HD. We will see if ABC delivers.

I just find it hard to believe that ABC is not broadcasting in HD. CBS and FOX showed all NFL playoffs in HD....just never ceases to amaze me that they are not keeping up with the times.....they will show Desperate Housewives in HD......but not their sports.......

ABC will show the finals in HD just like they did last year with Detroit/LA. The conference finals will hopefully also be in HD. Unfortunately they don't feel that the extra costs of HD live broadcasts is worthwhile for the first/second round playoffs.
