Any of tonight's games in HD tonight at all?

Not seeing anything on 94/95. This feels like the dark ages with all this HD pouring in.

CBC has not posted an HD schedule yet, but last year the early game (usually Toronto) generally was in HD, and all others were in widescreen SD.

sigma957,

I think CBC has HD capabilities for East and West games now.

Here is what I have been looking for. I have a local Cable co. FIOS, that carries INDemand for CI. They have added a channel called GameHD and here is the schedule for OCt. It looks like I will be getting a game or two a day in HD besides what I get on HD net.

Dish subscribers watch channel 548 HD and tell me if you see quick breakups when the camera goes into the corner of the zones, if you look at the plexiglass you can see the image pixelate. Not enough bandwidth I assume? Even in HD-Lite?

Dish also screwed up on Colorado/Nashville. No HD, they should have already knew that anyways.

I am watching the Toronto/Ottawa game and just got infuriated when I saw the "available in HD banner" go across the screen,

I have the HDnet coverage and INDemand Game HD of the Rangers vs panthers. The Indemand feed is Florida FSN. The HDnet PQ and of course DD 5.1 sound is far better than FSN Florida. The FSN feed has a LOT of artifacting and HDnet is flawless. I am guessing PQ on the Game HD channel will vary depending on PQ of the broadcaster.

yep, very disappointing. i have both the sports pack with all the rsn's as well as center ice. getting rsn's in hd loses a lot of its appeal if every hd game is blacked out, especially when i know the sd version is not blacked out.

i am holding out hope that this is an issue with comcast versus d* and that we'll get the hd version when fsn stations or nesn are involved.

Almost all of the RSN's are not available in HD yet.

five are, including three that broadcast nhl games. the blackhawks were blacked out on hd tonight. tomorrow, both the bruins and capitals play on rsn's that have been lit up in hd nationally. i would guess comcast washington will black out the caps high def game. hopefully, nesn will not black out the bruins.

I have Center Ice and the Sports Pack and CSN Chicago HD was blacked out for the Chicago-Minnesota game. How lame! While the SD feed via Center Ice was okay for SD, even if the game wasn't actual HD on CSN, it would still be upconverted SD.

Let's see if DirecTV gets their act together with NESN. If not, time to make some calls.

Noticed that too. I know a lot of time D* gets blame for stuff that is out of their control, but a lot of times it is their fault. So, who is to blame for the deal last night? How is it possible that the SD version is not blacked out while the HD is? This seems like a D* screw up to me. Not to mention D* screwed up CBC's HNIC feed by putting it up on two seperate channels.

Still looks like E* is working on their CI HD listings still, has they are changing everyday, I like how we can get home and away feeds in HD of the same game coming up.

Let hope E* carries this over to his NBA League Pass HD also

Just received a weird response from DirecTV regarding last night's snafu:

Quote:


Thanks for writing. I will be happy to assist you with this. I’m very sorry to hear about the problems you’ve experienced watching the game in High Definition (HD).

Normally, the Blackhawks vs Wild SD game on CSN Chicago would have been blacked out to you, because it was an out-of-market game on a Regional Sports Net, but during the NHL CENTER ICE free preview, we are allowed to show it. Unfortunately, the HD feed was not covered by the free preview.

DIRECTV did feature three games in HD last night, the Panthers vs Rangers on channel 96 or 79 (based on zip code), the Avalanche vs Predators on channel 97, and the Blues vs Coyotes on channel 96.

I know this can be frustrating, and that blackout rules can be somewhat confusing, but I hope you understand that sports blackouts and game availability are controlled by the leagues, sports associations, and networks that purchase the rights to broadcast individual games. To protect their rights, we must enforce the blackouts and availability mandated by them.

Is this not an outright lie? There were no HD hockey games last night for those that had HDNet blacked out and had to watch via MSG.

The only game I saw last night in HD was on HDNet. That was it. The other two games I could only find the SD feed. So maybe it was a lie.

Definitely a lie, I checked there a few times throughout the evening. I even had to hunt to find my Devils in SD since D* listed channel 766 as Upcoming: Islanders v. Sabres all night. It really had the Devils though. Hopefully tonight will usher in the new HD era, if D* would start providing CBC and TSN HD, I might have to give up complaining altogether.

Still not going to see it in HD on a dish.
Home team is Sabres - MSG Buffalo [HD for cable only]
Away team is Islanders - Fox Sports NY [HD for cable only]
Next question?
