    I just turned to channel94 or 95 and I see the Yankees/Tigers game in HD? Is there a preview this weekend again?

    I sub to EI but not Superfan stuff.

    No preview. Somebody probably forgot to "flip the switch".

    Are you in the Mariners market? The M's game was suppposed to start at 7:05 pm PT. They probably turned it on and the Yanks are running late because of a rain delay.

    Did you buy the half season of EI?

    Superfan was free with the half-season package. At least, that's what they told me when I bought it. And I'm getting all the HD games that they don't foolish blackout...

    96 would be the MPEG4 (spotbeam) version. 95 will have the MPEG2 national version. If the Yankee game ever ends. They are in the bottom of the 7th...

    Nope. But I will be checking in the next few days and see if I am in fact getting that FREE.

    I did notice both 95/96 did show Mariners/WhiteSox, one Whitesox broadcast and one Mariners I guess.

    But I think the previous poster is probably correct. They just forgot to flip the switch. Why is the Yanks game sooo long lol. Too bad their winning.

    Hey thanks! I am thinking maybe I will get the HD games now. I would never have checked unless your post and now I notice I am getting channel 731HD.

    Gosh I hope I wasn't getting this all year round. :rolleyes: I know at the beginning of the season I wasn't so maybe they just added this in the second half?

    Thank u

    There is nothing on HD like baseball in my opinion!

    I don't have the Superfan this year (just got HD last month) but fully intend on having it for '08. Do any of you guys know if they plan on expanding it? I check the program guide and it seems there are only a couple of games each day on the HD channels. Thanks, Freddy

    Um, no.

    I will repeat. 96 was the local MPEG4 spotbeam coverage. 95 was the MPEG2 national coverage. Both Mariners broadcasts.

    Both would be available to you as a local Mariners customer. The Yankee game ran over.
