ESPN America Hd is now available in the UK and Ireland for the first time. The new channel gives fans access to the best sporting action from the US in HD quality. The introduction of the channel brings the number of ESPN channels available in the UK to five, in addition to ESPN, ESPN HD, ESPN Classic and ESPN America. The launch also means ESPN is the only sports broadcaster, other than Sky, in the UK to offer two HD channels. ESPN America HD will be available to existing ESPN subscribers who have a Sky HD subscription at no extra cost.
