Hey guys, just thought I would let you know that WWE will NOT be going HD in the UK. That comes as a major surprise as Sky Sports has TWO HD channels dedicated especially to HD broadcasts. The only reasons I can think of are that -

1) It would cost too much for WWE to beam a HD broadcast across the Atlantic.

2) Sky Sports only seem to broadcast in HD when THEIR cameras are on location.

Also, the Royal Rumble will not be broadcast on Sky Box Office HD, again, another surprise as the Ricky Hatton vs Floyd Mayweather fight was.
