    I don't have that package but I am going to upgrade so I can record something.

    When I go to "All Channels" on the guide, I show channel 158 for CBS Sports Network but id doesn't have the HD emblem on it. Is that the HD channel or is on another channel?

    Don't know if it matters, but I'm have a Hopper and am on the Eastern Arc.

    Thanks.

    There are channels and HD versions of channels that are hidden when you do not subscribe to them. It's there and you will get it in your guide once it is in your subscription package.

    That is because those two HD feeds are on 129W not on 110W or 119W which are the satellites that serve PR.

    CBS Sports Network was rebranded in 2005. CBS purchased CSTV, which launched in 2002. Thanks.

    CSTV, now CBS Sports Network also does website management for many NCAA sports teams, including many in the B1G. Although not as big as ESPN Family, they do broadcast many college sports (Football & Basketball mostly). They also have a very good college football show during the season.

    Odd, cbssn was added but ESPN-U is still SD !! This sucks if you follow college sports! "that player might be xxxx but with SD I can't tell!!!!!" Crappy ABC contract huh?

    CBSSN wasn't "added"... it was a rebranding of a channel Dish already carried... and this happened years ago.

    The reason we don't have ESPNUHD (and some other Disney/ABC channels) is because of the two companies not being able to come to an agreement... it isn't like Dish chose CBSSN over ESPNU.

    Some of us have said all along, if you have something better, get it and be done. I understand 100% not being happy paying full price for less. But at some point if it really bothers someone, drop Dish. They offer what they offer and if you can't get them to change, use another service.
