    Help please. I live in Baltimore and I know I get MASN and CSN. What is the difference in those two feeds?

    MASN and Comcast Sports Net are two different channels. MASN is not doing HD now. They have the rights to the Orioles and the Nationals. And Comcast Sports Net has the rights for the Capitals and the Wizards.

    By the time I woke up, it was all "Paid Advertisement." I guess I'll be back when the Terps are playing.

    I live in the spot beam territory so I've had this channel for a little while now. This is anecdotal rather than empirical, so I could be wrong, but I can't really think of very much actual HD programming that's been on this channel. Maybe I've just been flipping through the guide at the wrong times or my memory is shot.

    So far the only thing that has been on in HD are the Saturday afternoon fox sports net college football games. They should have the Wizards and Caps as soon as the games start up.

    I'm confused. I've had Comcast Sports net in HD on 629 for quite some time now. How is this new?

    I think they lit it up for everyone not in the DC DMA.

    Correct. It was not available in Baltimore until today. Just in time for the Wizards!

    No. It was MPEG4. It launched on SAT 99 spot beam with the D.C. locals.

    It is just available to everyone now.

    Lancaster,...
    The only thing worth watching on CSN DC is when the Rangers play the Caps and the game is blacked out on MSG, and CSN DC is one of my RSNs..

    This channel is now also mapped to channel 681. Is this channel moving?
