There seems to be something going on with channel 96. It says something like upcoming program from 7pm-1am, but title unavailable. Those times would fit the 3 games scheduled for ESPNHD2 tonight.

Give it up, just give it up. I'm in agony seeing all of you agonize about this station not being on tonight. For your own piece of mind, please watch something else.

Who's watching? I've moved on to inane speculation on AVS Forum. Nothing like it!

Well, let's face it, neither ESPN nor D* ever SAID D* would be carrying it tonight or anytime soon. It may be that a lot more carriers have agreements and they won't be showing ESPN2-HD for 6 months or more.

=NLK=
You know I havent seen any statement from ESPN on carriage deals. Makes you wonder if they have ANY deals in place.....As been said above how inept can ESPN execs be....LOL this flub might force out Eisner sooner than expected.

The sad part is, as of right now, you're right. It's on the air - everyone is a bit puzzled why it's not being relayed by the two carriers. Perhaps some phone calls to D* and Adelphia are in order.

Would it be possible that ESPN would only have a feed at CES? Doesn't make a lot of sense.

They said on the SD broadcast to call D*...so that's what I'm doing...they're "checking" on it... :)

Maybe I need to reset my receiver!

Why, so the CSR's can tell us that the channel doesn't exist?
