Can i complain now? :D

I wouldn't subject myself to watching the Knicks and I'm not the biggest hockey fan. I just live in NYC and have a greater comprehension of the evils of Lil Jimmy Dolan.

He doesn't want any competition for anything he owns. Look up how he stopped the NY Jets from building a new stadium because it would take concerts and such away from the garden.

In the words of Miracle Max, it would take a miracle, for us to see MSG and FSNY in HD anywhere but cable.


No complaining till 12/4 now. :D. Per the other thread MSG HD and FSNY HD will be up and running next Wednesday.

For now, I will believe satelliteracer. He said there are no contract issues and no technical issues, just that they are scheduling it for midweek for support reasons.

He is saying the miracle has already happened. Can you just wait until the date he says it happens before you imply he is full of it?

I am not saying anyone is full of anything. I am sure D* wants to provide the channel. AndI am sure satelliteracer is providing the info he receives.

It is Dolan who can not be trusted.

I understand Orioles owner Peter Angelos has kept the Nationals off of tv in your area of the country or at least did for a while.

Jimmy Dolan is like him, except he owns 2 sports teams, the arena, and the stations that broadcast 5 sports teams in the NY area and a competing television provider.

Im just hoping for ESPN News and ABC Family at some point soon!!

Disney and the other kids channels would be nice too, but not as important as ESPN News... :)


I don't get the fascination with ESPNews in HD. A lot of the highlights on Sportcenter are not in HD. The NHLHD version of NHL on the Fly has highlights of games that were broadcast in 16x9 in HD and shows them in 4x3 SD. :confused:

How about some locals for the Mobile-Pensacola market that was promised by the end of 2006? The Cable networks carry ABC,CBS,NBC in HD.
