    Lancaster,...
    Yep, NHL Network HD and in SD are both turned on today.

    I guess the 'trick' is on us; still no MSG HD or FSN NY HD though...

    Again, don't read into the logos appearing on the D* website or any other clues. As long as the Dolans own MSG, they will be making it EXTREMELY difficult to bring this to D*. Their MO has ALWAYS been, protect your interests at ALL costs.

    Why? You think DirecTV just picked logos out of a hat? There are serious legal ramifications for misuing a logo. If there was not a deal close to being made, the Dolans would be yelling from the treetops and probably suing at this point.

    Doesn't mean the deal didn't die completely but there had to have been something or trouble would have been brewing by now.

    How about simply the contract effective date is Nov. 1st. I still cannot believe it is not imminent.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are threatning lawsuits by this point. Hopefully not and they are working on finalizing an agreement.

    I would suspect real soon, we're either going to see the logo gone or D* carriage.

    Now that the NBA season has started I think the added pressure by basketball fans for these channels will make it happen.

    Besides if the channels launch now, look at how much money Directv has saved by waiting for the NBA to start....while us NHL fans suffered.

    This is not the first time that D* has had logos and the channels didn't come to fruition right away. Do I believe there are discussions between D* and the Dolans, yes. Do I beleive the Dolans know those logos are out there, yes. Do I believe MSG/FSNY is immenant, NO!! I would think it is at least equally likely that those logos get removed as it is those channels showing up any time soon.

    And as a HUGE Rangers fan, I REALLY hope I am wrong and I think while these are signs it might be coming, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Just last night I saw another of those Optimum Online commercials touting that they are the only place to all 9 NY area teams in HD (Mets, Yankees, Giants, Jets, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, Islanders and Devils)

    I thought it was reported on here somewhere that Verizon FIOS has MSG HD and FSN NY HD.. am I wrong?

    Personally, I haven't seen that Optimum commercial in quite a while and I've watched every Rangers game this season (that was available from the MSG feed) on CI.

    Also, on the(bottom) front page of Newsday today there was another IO TV ad with same content mentioned by ELVee above. I just can't see Cablevision putting so much resource into this advertising if things were to change soon.
