    Has anyone heard if games will be shown on HD Net again? I haven't seen anything either way. On their website (hdnet), there used to be a page about MLS on HDnet, but it is not there anymore. Could have been taken off because there is nothing to show, but wanted to see if anyone knew for sure. I was stoked when TW offered HDnet, but if they don't carry MLS games, channels aren't as cool anymore.

    Yes they will be showing games.... if im not wrong HDNet signed a multi year deal contract with MLS (3 years i Bleieve).... that is the reason why im going to get an HD receiver for my DirecTV satellite before the MLS season starts. i basically have

    ABC, ESPN 2, FoxSports World/Fox Sports en Espanol, MLS Shootout Package, Yahoo platinum and now im ready to get an HD reciever since i bought a flat screen HD TV... im also plaing on buying Tivo... I rule!!!

    If you have Direct TV, they will be coming out with a new HD/Tivo receiver in the next few months that will be the bizzomb! Something like 40 or 60 hourst of HD recording! I would hold out for that if you are getting HD and want TIVO. I have cable so that option is unavailable for me (but I do have TIVO, and it rules).

    Yes, it was a three year contract. From the original press release:

    "Major League Soccer and HDNet announced a three-year agreement to broadcast live HDTV coverage of MLS games."

    Thanks, I emailed Mark Cuban, and he also said MLS would be back.

    No real need for shootout if you already have ESPN2, FSW, and HDnet? Three games out of 5 most weeks.
