I pay $2 a month for the Cable Card for my TiVo.

I have not used my surround system in a while and decided to use it last night to watch the Islander game. I noticed that even though my receiver lit up Dolby Digital, I was hearing the announcers from the front surrounds. Not sure if Islander games were always like this.
So just to double check, I switched to the Met game on SNY, and I also heard the announcers through the front surrounds, when I know for a fact it was not always like that in the past.
The Yankee game on YES did have only dialogue coming from the center speaker.
Was wondering if anyone else noticed this, and is it the networks, or is it Cablevision?

Displays are like 100% cotton t-shirts. Always buy a size larger than you think you'll need, as they tend to shrink over time.

CBS owns CBS Sports Network, Showtime, the Smithsonian Channel and is a co-owner of The CW.

I have a PS3 now, so I guess I do have Blu-ray. ;)

CBS also owns the former TV Guide Network, now known as Pop. Cablevision does not currently carry this channel.

Cablevision vs FIOS

My daughter just got her own place near pelham bay park. I offered to pay her first two years of "triple play".

Cablevision silver, free multiroom dvr + phone + 50mps Internet is $155 total after taxes and NO contract.

FIOS Extreme, quantum dvr + phone + 50mps internet is $212 total after taxes with 2 year contract. heavy taxes of $25 plus they charge $20/mnth for DVR

Is the PQ of FIOS worth $700/yr extra?

you're much better off posting your question in the fios forum where people actually have fios and likely had Cablevision before.

I had CV in Huntington , changed over to fios 1+year ago, and still have CV at the beach as fios is not/will never be offered in Montauk


my observations having have/had both... I can't see a diff in PQ... no diff in tel. service, and internet is def faster with fios... but I have 75/75 with fios, and whatever standard they give u with CV , which is prob 20/5...


if it was me, I'd go with the cheaper service... when my fios contract is up, i'll see who gives me the cheaper $$$ and go with the,,


I will say u get more stations with fios... but most of them I don't watch, so no advantage there

Not showing up yet in FIOS's OnDemand (ch 1000).


I purchased the DEAD50 streaming webcast to be safe, it appears it will be available through MLB.com or MLB.tv


I am still trying to figure out if I can view it through my TiVo Roamio.....


Good luck!

If you figure out anything more on this let me know.

I reached out to Cablevision about this today, 3 times but the wait was too long so I never got an answer.

I'm 16 months into my '2' years fios contract, when on Friday nite CV rep comes to door... he gives me a pretty decent deal the gold package with 50internet, and phone including something like 500 mins to a bunch of diff countries... bottom line 160bucks... that's about 50bucks cheaper then fios... they also will pick up the fios penalty for leaving early ...upto 250 bucks


I did see this morn, they are charging me 40 bucks to move the telephone number from fios to CV... well with one email to CV advising them I'm 'rethinking' moving view the 40bucks, they give me a one time courtesy of the 40bucks...


bottom line I'm getting CV best pack for approx. 50bucks less per month then fios...


I will add that the fios internet is prob faster, but won't be noticeable with emails, surfing/etc... and u do get a number of tv stations on fios that are unavailable with CV, but for 50bucks, i'll suffer...
