No black out in Kzoo either yee haw! Now if we can just get fsn plus 669 to open up 669-1 for the Tigers home games that would be great.

So why in the HE** can we not get our home games in HD. FSN sucks...

First I hear how we cannot get the away games because FSN doesn't have to capacity to show both home and away games in HD...we don't even get to see Versus.

Now tonight...we again are screwed out of HD for our freaking home game and again...cannot see Versus.

FSN-South is pathetic.

Good for you Scott...I am glad at least someone is getting it in HD.


Sorry to hear it. And definitely FSN-South's problem. Kinda like FSN Midwest with the Blues. They announced back last summer that they would have all of *5* Blues home games in HD all season. Hopefully these smaller FSNs will get their act together.

Well, I jump to the conclusion as if they are doing this game in HD one would expect that game 4 will be in HD as well. Series will be over at that point. ;)

Seriously though if they are doing away games in HD then you'd think the remaining home games would be in HD as well. We'll see!


According to FSN's web site and my call into the station last week, neither game 4 nor game 5 are being broadcast in HD. No HD = BS.

Understood. Game 3 wasn't supposed to either. Wasn't listed as HD on either the NHL site or the Red Wings site and wasn't listed as HD in the guide but there it was in HD. So I'll hold out hope. :) But it will probably be dashed...

I spoke to someone there today who patiently explained to me that there aren't enough resources available to broadcast tomorrow night's game in HD. It's a combination of too many events being on the air at the same time, even if they aren't Detroit events. Baseball, NBA season's final night, and NHL playoff games...so there's either no truck available to broadcast the game in HD from the arena, or they don't have enough on the network end. Not sure the details, but he assured me that tomorrow's game won't be in HD and that the Vs. HD feed will be blacked out in Detroit ("unless someone falls asleep at the wheel"). But, the good news is that they did add Game 5 in HD.

Yup, just on FSN Plus for the next few weeks as the Wings and Pistons playoff games get priority.

When the NHL and NBA playoffs get to the exclusive network level (Versus, NBC & TNT, ESPN, ABC) Tigers will get all the HD love :)

I'm trying to tonight, but MLB EI is screwing things up for me it seems.. hmmph.

If the Wings game is in SD in Detroit tomorrow night, I'm SO glad I live out of market and can see it on Vs in HD (although I would rather hear Ken and Mickey)

When you're dealing with FSN, it's almost always not enough resources on their end. Most SD games are produced in HD, and just sent out as SD.

I think Game 4 is in HD. I was watching Tigers Live postgame and they were showing what the schedule for today looked like and they had "FSN HD" next to game 4. Of course the Tigers are on FSN +.

Just a reminder to you Tigers fans that FSN+ can also be in HD, channel 669-1. There were a couple Red Wings games on FSN+ this year and one of them was in HD on the -1 channel. So be sure to have both in your channel guide just in case.

The FSN employee with whom I spoke said that there was NO WAY tonight's Wings' game is going to be in HD. In addition, FSN Plus games aren't in HD unless someone makes a mistake, as nobody in Detroit other than those of us with DirecTV have an FSN+-HD channel.

Well, they made a mistake a couple months ago then when the Wings were in HD on 669-1 which is FSN+ HD. There *is* a reason why DirecTV actually has an FSN+ HD channel. ;)

Yep. If you notice, 669 is actually CSN+, not FSN+. They just stick FSN+ there when they can. 672 isn't ours either. I think that because FSN+ Detroit is used so infrequently, DirecTV just doesn't bother giving it a regular channel number. Which is pretty crappy, because it would be nice to have a consistent place to look.

At least it's on. Dish doesn't have tonight's game at all.

At least the HD version is static. It's always 669-1.

Sucks about Dish.

Well, no HD so far. Probably be in SD. Game 3 was just an unexpected bonus to be in HD.

Looks to be in HD. Pre-game is so the game should be.
