Does anybody know if they are ever going to give us Wisconsin subscribers FSN North - Wisconsin as a full time channel? One thing that annoys me about the current setup is that half the time when Brewers games are being shot in HD, DirecTV doesn't carry it.

you are not allowed to complain about this..

not according to the posters here..

you must take what you get and be happy..

because your payment isn't as good as others who post here..

if you don't believe me just ask..

they will inform you..

I guess that Wisconsin subscribers to D* are just second class citizens.

We better just get use to it.

Really, I have not noticed this to be the case at all. If I look at the schedule on the Brewers official website, all of the games they said would be in HD, were available on FSN-WI HD. How do you know games were shot in HD but not on DirecTV?

I haven't had a problem not getting games scheduled to be in HD in HD either. My only problem has been having to sub to EI to get the Brewers in the first place, but that's not a discussion for here.

I don't have HDTV yet.

I would like my regular FSN-Wisconsin FULL TIME.

I just don't see what's so hard about that.

I don't care to watch stuff about Minnesota sports teams.

From what I understand FSN Wis is just a cast off from FSN North and it's basically just lit up for Brewer/Bucks games. I don't expect it to go full time anytime soon.

Yeah, I realize D* thinks that.

But if someone over there would just take a minute to look at the two channels they would see they do in fact have different programming.

It is a battle those of us in Wisconsin will never win.

If they would just give us the Brewers Squeeze Play's during the season, and the Brewers Classic games in the winter, I'd be happy with that.
