Cox Takes Path 1 to HD Baseball Telecast

4/12/2004 8:45 AM Eastern

Cox Communications Inc. used Path 1 Network Technologies Inc.’s "Cx1000" video gateways to air Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres’ opening game at brand-new PETCO Park in high-definition.

In addition to Thursday’s clash -- in which the San Francisco Giants prevailed over the Padres 6-3 -- the MSO will air about 150 sports events in HD this year.

Cox already aired the first-ever HD college-baseball game from PETCO March 14, when host San Diego State University topped the University of Nebraska 6-2.
