RSNs in HD Chart version 2.0




Note: Dsp. indicates an ongoing programming dispute, channels marked are excluded from the total count.

About
The above chart details national carriage agreements with the top television service providers in the United States for all presently available or announced HD channels. Providers listed include the two major DBS carriers and the top terrestrial providers, including Verizon and AT&T's fiber services. Other providers have been excluded because their footprint is simply too small.

A tip of the hat to all the AVS members who have contributed to the spreadsheet over the years, and a special thanks to URFloorMatt, CycloneGT, nataraj, sansri88, and Ken H for their prior work keeping this thread and chart alive.

Subscription Sports Packages
This chart also tracks subscription sports packages with HD coverage. All cable providers marked above and Verizon FiOS offer their sports packages through iNDEMAND's three HD channels; Team HD, Game HD, and Game 2 HD. As such, they offer a limited amount (one to five games) of HD coverage on any given night with their package. DirecTV broadcasts significantly more HD coverage to its subscribers, typically all the HD games available in each package.

iN DEMAND began offering nine total HD feeds for its subscription sports packages on September 16, 2011. Carriage of these additional feeds varies by provider and market. For more information, see here.

RSN Carriage
A separate chart has been created for tracking high definition RSN carriage for the providers listed, but please understand it is currently a work in progress so errors are expected.

Most cable providers and Verizon FiOS only carry RSNs in their designated market areas, however there are a few that are available nationwide.

DirecTV, Dish & AT&T U-Verse carry nearly all RSNs nationwide which can be added to base programming packages by subscribing to an additional add-on (usually a Sports Pack/Tier) or in some cases subscribing to the highest base package offered. All blackout restrictions still apply.

3D Channels Carriage
This chart tracks 3D channels carriage for the providers listed.

East & West feeds
Where a "West" feed is marked, that means the provider offers two separate feeds of the same channel, one on a three-hour delay from the other. A reader on the West coast should probably swap the words "East" and "West" on this chart, and assume that if a provider does not carry a secondary feed of a given channel, the feed missing is the East coast feed. Yes, like most sports coverage, this chart too has an East coast bias.

Wide vs. Limited Carriage
Since cable operators roll out channels on a market-by-market basis, the default selection is "limited availability" unless a press release or someone here indicates otherwise. Channels listed above as "wide" are available to at least 50% of markets/subscribers.

Current Version
The most current versions will always be available for download via a Dropbox URL which is updated instantly the same time changes are made to the files.

The spreadsheets available on Dropbox are an Excel 2007 version, if you use an older version of Excel a Compatibility Pack can be downloaded free to edit in Excel 2000, XP, or 2003.

It is insane that DirecTV is not providing Sundance and WE in HD. What is taking them so long to catch up with cable in HD channel availability?

I thought it was also insane that AT&T U-verse didn't pick up Sundance, WE, IFC and BBC America in HD until just this past Fall. Up until then, I thought they would never pick up any of those channels in HD. Plus I also ruled out the possibility that they would ever add BBC World News to their lineup, until they not only did last February but also in HD, so you never know.

I doubt Univision Telenovelas HD is even available as Bright House likely would have picked it up when they added the SD version.
considering TWC did announce it to be added in HD in Southern California before the mention of it being added was removed when the channels were launched by TWC. it might exist

You missed the point. No Charter system has Univision Telenovelas in HD.
Oriolesmagic, I apologize. WVVOLFAN must have made Univision Telenovelas HD limited for Charter by accident. All I knew was the Charter all digital transaction is now 50% complete and should have just said that all limiteds for Charter are now wide.

forhire,

Maybe you could post a link or mention the specific local area where you saw Univision Telenovelas listed in HD for Charter? Might help for clarification.
WVVOLFAN, please change Univision Telenovelas HD from limited to unavailable for Charter as I now don't see it in any Charter channel lineup. I'm settling the smoke and should have caught your error.

AWE HD is not carried in most of Charter's footprint. It is only found in NC and LA. Keep it limited. The rest are wide, or will be wide.

As for SEC Network alternates, Charter is carrying both SEC Network HD and SEC Network Extra HD in their territories, both inside and outside the SEC footprint. Charter looks to be wide for both channels.

What I've seen from Time Warner Cable, the SEC Network alternate channel will only be in SD for them.

As for Comcast and Xfinity 3D, the main channel was mostly 3Net programming, but had programming before that. Xfinity 3D 2 I've only seen on lineups in the Pittsburgh area, and Chattanooga, TN. It looks like 3D programming as a whole has bombed.

SEC Network HD on Directv now just added today.

No alts in the guide at this time may show up later near the time they are needed or maybe over the next few days.
