5. There's a lot more RSN's that D* carries part time (live games and their pre-post games only): FS Indiana, FS Wisconsin, FS Kansas City, RS Utah, FS Carolinas, FS Tennesee, FS Houston, and FS Oklahoma. I know for a fact that FS Wisconsin is full time on cable, per a stay in a Milwaukee hotel room 2 years ago, I dunno about the others.

Fox Sports Ohio/Cinci.
Full time HD, but only part time HD on Direct TV. (Cavs, Blue Jackets, & Reds, depending on blackout/location in Ohio, ex; no Reds games in N. Ohio, Indians territory, Tribe carried on STO full time HD)
No college sports, UEFA, or anything else in HD on FSN Ohio


i think fs tennesee is still just a subfeed of fs south i know it was a couple years ago

I don't agree with the first statement.

D* delivers more full time RSNs then part time.

Full time
FS Arizona
FS Detroit
FS Florida
FS Midwest
FS North
FS South
FS Southwest
FS West
Prime Ticket
Root Sports Rocky Mtn
Root Sports Pittsburgh
Root Sports Northwest
Comcast Bay Area
Comcast California
Comcast Chicago
Comcast Mid Atlantic
Comcast New England
YES
NESN
Altitude
MSG
MSG Plus
Sports South
SNY


The part time ones are only a handful and games only. There are exceptions like the ones you mentioned, but most of the RSNs are in HD and full time.

Such hopeless negativity and pessimism. Why do you gotta rain on everyone's parade with BS statements that you can't back up?


Calm down. I didn't say it wouldn't. I said not all test channels do.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I don't remember that...

Sixto, care to jump in and explain????


There was but there was a lot of doubt. No signs in on line guides, etc. plus I think one didn't even exist.

TCM is coming. All signs point to it.

Much longer than I thought if true. But they are wrong about it being an exclusive, and I don't think they just mean the date....

Looks like it may be coming then. That's good news. I've been looking forward to this one. Looks exclusive to me though. Just guesswork here so far.
