HD Weekend Sports Outlook: 6/13 – 6/15

HDTVThis is it, the final weekend for the NBA Finals. Even if the series goes to 7 games, it will end on Thursday. The future HDTV weekend schedules look bleak, at least until the NFL kicks off it’s pre-season in August. Tune in to ABC-HD on Sunday to see if the Lakers even up the series, or the Celtics take a commanding lead. Maybe one more championship will make the Boston fans go away for awhile.

This weekend is chock full of PGA US Open coverage. There are five separate high-definition broadcasts between Friday and Sunday, three of them come in the afternoon on Friday.

Major League Baseball is entering another batch of inter-league play this weekend. This time, Sunday night baseball is featuring the Atlanta Braves as they take on the Los Angeles Angels. There is also a game mid-afternoon on Fox on Saturday, depending on your region, and Red Sox vs. Reds on Sunday.
