It's my understanding that CSTV is making this weekend a free preview, but it's up to the cable or satellite companies to pass on the preview. Does anyone know if Dish is going to have CSTV available to all customers this weekend or will it only be available if you subscribe to a package it's included in?

My understanding after reading an article in today's Indianapolis Star, that the game is the being offered to cable companies only for free. Comcast is the only cable company picking it up in the Indianapolis area. The way I figure it is that if you have a CSTV subscripition on Dish or Direct TV you should be able get it on the regular CSTV broadcast. For FTAers CSTV has it's backhauls on AMC 2 and SBS 6 in the 4:2:2 format. That's what I will be looking for. GO IRISH!!!!!!

Don't quote me on this but it seems to me that I read on their web site that CSTV was owned by CBS.

You're correct.
On the CSTV website, they are referred to as "a CBS Company."
