    Can you view these games if you are not in that market?

    EDIT: Never mind - Outside of the Altitude territory (anywhere in the U.S. that Dish Network or DirecTV service is offered), Altitude is available in regional Sports Packs, however all Avalanche and Nuggets games will be blacked out. All other Altitude programming is available in these areas.

    Not much point in me paying for the sports pack when most of the programming will be blacked out.

    Altitude HD is part of the SPORTS PACK. "Normal" blackout rules apply.

    Great news, I will have to rely on this channel for hockey a lot now since I canceled NHL CI due to the MSG HD feeds disappearing. Now if only they would get different announcers...

    Sixto-
    What will be used for overlap HD channel when Nuggets and Avs are playing at the same time?

    Thanks for your reports!

    I'm confused. I'm stilling trying sort out this RSN mess. Games on this channel will be blacked out for anyone outside of that local market, correct? How...unexciting.

    RSNs open up if you have the package like CI, LP. or EI. For example, if you have CI, then you can watch the Avs on Altitude rather than channel 7xx.

    Oh I see. Even if I'm not in that market...I can watch the Avs on Altitude via CI. That makes more sense. Thank you.

    Yes if you get NHL Center Ice, though IIRC DirecTV had problems picking up the Altitude feed in the past for the Avs...never had a problem for the Nugs though

    Hopefully, we'll get some Mammoth games in HD also. If not, at least it will be a better SD feed.

    I am so jealous of those that got Altitude in HD! D* (CSR's) had said quite a few times that CSN Bay Area was at the top of the list to be added full time in HD. I am happy for those that have Alt...but still waiting for my RSN to be in HD full time. As usual I guess we can't really put much faith in what a D* CSR tells us regarding new channels.

    The HS football game on now doesn't look too bad. Not sure if its in HD or Stretch O Vision but either way it looks pretty good.

    Colorado Rapids in HD would be great for MLS direct kick too. Maybe next spring in the new season?

    Altitude TV had their first opportunity to simultaneously broadcast the Nuggets and Avalanche in HD last night. The Nuggets looked pretty good on ch. 681, but the Avalanche game appeared to be an upconvert on 682-1. I hope that this is just early season bugs for Altitude.

    I agree, it(the AVS game) looked like a similar game earlier this season when they played in Toronto I think. Maybe it has something to do with Canadian feeds? Eh! A side note, These young kids look pretty good! Puckhounds who hustle hustle hustle. Great to watch in any format.
