you know the anticipation BUBBLE is on the SCHNEID when the last post was at (prior to mine) was at 8am on Sunday morning..

Easily my favorite post in this whole thread.

I had no idea what the word "SCHNEID" meant. I did a search, expecting the answer come from the Urban Dictionary and be some hip term I was too old to know.

It was a joy to find out that "off the schneid" is a baseball term meaning to stop a losing streak, and even better, comes from the Yiddish word "schneider" for tailor, or "one who cuts the cloth".

I wonder if this is related to the fact that in many card games a "schneider" is to beat someboy that got zero points. In Gin Rummy (for money), the stakes would be "penny a point, dollar a game and double for a schneider"

Probably right. One of the other definitions I found referenced cards. I can't remember the context but I'd bet this is it.

Several of the most requested/anticipated channels have been added this year, so one can expect a less frequented thread, and now that IONEHD is available, we have no national channel in testing, nor any rumors of upcoming ones.

TWC SportsNet launches next Monday, but it has it's own thread at this time, so some anticipation is taking place there.


Speaking for myself, I'll be ranting about CW HD-DNS this weekend given that their first Season Premiere is next Tuesday (I've warned folks that my rant would be coming by then multiple times, so no complaints!).

Aside from that, a topic of discussion that interests me, or better yet, a channel appearing in testing, I expect to be a casual viewer of the thread this week. :)

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.


But people in Oklahoma, Houston, Louisiana, Arkansas, and N. Mexico actually get FSN Southwest HD as the main feed, with FSN Oklahoma, Houston, etc. as a territorial thing.

In Ohio, FSN Ohio is NOT in HD at all except for the previously mentioned games.

I was familiar with the term, but not the spelling. In my usage, it'd mean any breaking of a bad streak (winless/scoreless/goalless) or initial points/runs/hits whatever.

I'd have spelled it "snide", and if you google "off the snide" you'll find a lot of other people would too, but I accept the Yiddish origin and appropriate spelling (I'll try to remember that for the future).

Full House in my bar on Sunday for the NFL, and the Yankees...Day 1 with NFL Network's RED-ZONE on TWC...GULP DIDNT deliver!!

TWC didn't turn on RZ and NFLN till the evening.

However it was anticipated and expected, that nothing would go live till this Thursday's game per print media. They all touted that the 27th was NYC light up day.. Wasn't gonna cave-in and put myself back into a $300+ pinch to turn on my commercial pricing for ST..I'll wait 1 more week for TWC's Red-Zone!!

Anticipation...noting but anticipation !!

Given the addition of more HBO channels last year, access to HBO Go, and the vastly improved HBO On Demand...there is a new reason to be happy with choosing DirecTV:

Apparently Dish Network is raising their HBO subscription fee $2, to $18.

This is one thing I never understood, Canada can get all our channels and shows but we can't get any of theirs.


I'm in the Detroit market. CBC affliliate from Windsor, Ontario is CBET Ch. 09. All the cable providers have it; right now, Bright House Networks and Comcast carry the HD. (I'm not certain about Charter.) Exception is AT&T U-verse not carrying CBET in high def.

If DirecTV reached a new agreement with somebody, well, who might it be, oh, I don't know, let's just say...

...the PAC 12...

...don't you think they'd have it on by the weekend?
