    Appreciate the heads up Satracer. Thank you for all you do for us. Any new HD is always better than no new HD.

    This should help clear it up. :lol:

    Probably not a better "celebration" you could imagine to correspond to these HD additions...

    I cant quite get all excited for MASN HD 24/7. Orioles and Nats games were already in HD on the -1 subchannels and thats all that will be in HD for a while. Seems like a waste of bandwidth until they get other HD programming.

    They will both increase from 40 games to 105 games in HD each this season. Plus for the games that are in HD the pre and post game show will be in HD.

    MASN will also broadcast ESPNEWS in HD (but that does not really matter since we have ESPNEWS HD anyway).

    They will also be broadcasting a lot of college sports in HD and the 4 Ravens preseason games in HD.

    Hopefully a few other shows on MASN will be in HD soon.

    Thanks for the info Satracer, we do appreciate it.

    But can you at least tell us which ones are coming? From what I've been reading on here we are only getting 2 full time HD RSNs. Has this now changed, are we getting G4 as well, why all this secrecy?

    Thanks

    the problem is there aren't that many other shows on MASN that can go HD. Who would care that Garceau and Marks show was in HD? Os/Nats Classics wont be in HD for obvious reasons. Between those two and ESPNews thats about 75% of their programming lately.

    Here's to hoping that some of that celebration will be for added locals in HD. As always, Satracer, thanks for that tidbit of info. Anything at this juncture is welcome.

    I agree but I am just happy to see MASN take the next step by having a full time HD channel and happy that DIRECTV will carry it. Now everything is in place and we just have to wait for MASN to add more HD programming.
