I agree, if the RSN's HD versions are available nationally (as I believe they advertised), then I don't see why the HD games wouldn't be open for CI subscribers. They might have to add one or two nightly channels with the Canadian feed for some games as they always do, but they certainly should have the capacity. Now this doesn't get in to the subject of the NY and Philly stations that still balk at allowing their feeds on satellites, but those games are often picked up on Canadian stations.
My only real concern is that last year on VS. and the CBC games, the HD feeds were never picked up on any of the 'spare' channels such as 94 or 95. The second VS. games on the HD channel were often Canadian feeds and ended up in SD even though the HD channel was kept on and the HD version was showing on Canadian services. I hope there is not a rule or lack of an agreement which prevents Canadian broadcasts in HD from being televised here.
