Versus now in HD

If you have DirecTV and HD, you now get Versus in HD (technically the HD bandwidth is split between Versus and the Golf Channel).

I don't know what this means about cycling however. But to a great extent, they are limited by the feed that they are provided - yeah, I suppose the mobile studio could be in HD, but who cares. For lesser events that are broadcast in tape delay, it might be easier as there is no uplink required.

Bull riding in HD baby...bull riding in HD.

I am a bit ticked it is a shared channel...both ways because I have missed some HD golf I wanted to see because of the switched and I missed a show on Vs I would rather have seen in HD because of golf. Ehh....I do like the new HD channels.
