    FYI I posted this in one of the NHL threads but CSN Chicago and the Blackhawks announced the end officially of the no home game on TV deal starting with a game on Nov 11.

    Does any one know about CSN + ? This is for the overflow games that will be broadcast on 668? Currently there does not appear to be an HD signal even though it it is a home game for the Bulls. This will also be an issue with any overflow Cubs or White Sox games pushed to CSN +. Will the HD signal be broadcast with the new satellite?

    Thanks.

    Very odd that CSN Chicago had the Bulls on CSN+ in SD, while NBAtv had an HD feed of the game what was provided by CSN Chicago.

    I'm in Central Iowa and watched a few pre-season Cubs games on 640 in "HD". The quality was awful. It appeared to be an SD picture with too few pixels that was enlarged and stretched. Is this what people mean by CSNC Widescreen? Will the picture quality of regular season games be any better?

    CSN has not shown any preseason games in HD, these games are shown at 480p upconverted to 1080i.

    Regular season games will be 1080i.
