    Not only that TWC doesn't have ESPN2 HD, but also my TWC still has ESPN2 in analog (not even digital), and for some reasons, the quality picture of this channel is the worst of all at my local area. I actually had to tune in to Univision sometimes to watch the games.

    Do you guys (with TWC) have ESPN2 in digital at least?

    In my area (NYC), the picture quality at ESPN2 SD for the world cup has been substantially better than it used to be. I am not sure if it is digital or not. Better than Univision, that is for sure. However, it is still a far cry from HD.

    Dressler from TWC answered the email that I sent him on Saturday night:

    "We have a deal with espn, which espn is refusing to comply with. Sorry
    for the inconvenience,but we are still trying to get the service on the

    I doubt it will be on time for the remaining games of the first round, this guy has been saying this for a long time now.

    I have TWDC and on Friday they had one of the games on ESPN HD which looked a lot better then today's HD telecast on ABC. I progmed my DVR to tape any thing soccer in HD on ESPN HD.....
    I hear the second round will on ESPN HD any way.Still is good to get ESPN2HD this way we might get SportsWorld in HD where it used be on VOOM..

    More bad news for TWC subscribers???

    I was watching the Argentina vs. Netherlands game, and they announced the two round-of-16 games on the weekend (the afternoon games that will not be broadcast by ABC) on ESPN2, not ESPN. That means no HD for us (TWC subscribers once again).

    Can that be right? I checked all schedules on the web, including on ESPN.com, and they all list all games from Saturday on on ESPN (not ESPN2), with the exception of one quarter-final. Please tell me that the announcers made a mistake!!! I had been worried about that because I saw ESPN2 and not ESPN on TWC website, but I thought it was a mistake by TWC.
