    So far, so good. Replays, highlights and will be great to watch NCAA Basketball games. I just wonder how good the streaming of live events will be.

    I like it because I didn't buy one of those stupid HD boxes (Comcast) for my upstairs TV and as a result all of the broadcasts were in SD. This allows me to watch sports in HD without having to pay anything extra (outside of the XB Gold).

    How do I download this?

    Unplug that tiny black box and just go with local channels. I do it on gameday and whenever I watch The Office.

    Comcast sucks hard for requiring that.

    Yeah, I've done that before, but for the games on ESPN, ESPN2 it's kind of a no win situation. Comcast does suck.

    I only had ESPN HD at my dad's place. I've never had it here, so that doesn't bother me as much.

    I hate the damn tiny remote you have to use.

    Anyways... you think you can help me with this ESPN3 stuff? Idk what I'm supposed to do. I'm interested to see how it is.

    I don't know much about the ESPN3 stuff, but I do know as long as you have Xbox Live Gold you're entitled to download it from one of the main windows on there. Once you download the update that is required it's just a matter of getting into the program to find the game/highlight you want to watch. I haven't noticed any other up charges or additional payments that need to be made in order to have this feature on your Xbox.

    Yeah, those freakin' remotes are the cheapest pieces of crap around.

    Any word if this is coming to PS3? This sounds like a great idea if the quality is decent.

    I've not tried going to ESPN3 via the PS3 browser yet.

    It'll probably hit ps3 later, like everything else.

    I like the format a lot. Very smooth. Also like how with all the game boxes open you can just kind of be on one (without selecting) and it'll start streaming before you actually go in to it.
