Well, we have gotten one CSN-NE HD game this year via DirecTV (11/7 vs. Denver on channel 95).

Hopefully things get straightened out before gametime tonight.


The Atlanta game last week was available on chan 96. I just sent an e-mail, I am assuming I will be getting a canned response for it, but if you are going to launch an hd channel and NOT show the ONLY programming that channel shows in HD, it's not all that smart.

Mine says " to be annouced" Why isn't scheduling the Celtics game for tonight??


Yeah, there was nothing on the HD channel last night. I was wondering what the deal was.

..just got off the line with D*....asked the CSR for a supervisor, she said they weren't available; the supervisor wanted her to give me an address to complain to....anyways, it was the same old line about some locations would get it, others wouldn't,etc.,etc.

I don't think 620-1 is going to happen in this area (RI)....I think it is the same old problem thats been going on ....that RI is not considered a local area, etc. As of now, a lot of RSN's (that preside in the 600's) recently added as HD channels are broadcast similar to what is happening with CSNEHD (620-1), i.e., " To Be Announced".....

So will have to scavenge for Celtics games on ESPN, TNT, NBAHD, channel 95, as before......


But if you've got Sports Pack, you should be able to get it, right? I couldn't get NESN HD until last month because I'm out of the restricted Boston area that had it for months, but now I have it, so now it should be the same with CSNE HD, I would think. :confused:

Absolutely. NOBODY is getting the "national" 620-1 right now -- it has nothing to do with being in RI. Obviously the channel isn't "on" yet, so I think the other poster is a little confused as to why we didn't see the game last night.

It has nothing to do with the fact we couldn't get NESN outside the Boston DMA until last month. Directv just launched it "nationally" so the rest of us in the region could get it -- which we now do -- and it's the same with CSN (even if 620-1 is only for HD games; it's not a 24/7 HD feed like NESN).

The difference is this channel simply isn't working yet, or they messed up yesterday. There's no other reason, so I'd just be patient and hope they get it ironed out asap.

Look on the schedule on Celtics.com and it should show you what channels every game is on.

Home games only on 620-1.

Away games are occasionally on NBAHD 601, TNTHD/TBSHD, or ESPN1/2HD.

All non-Nationally televised Celtics away games will be SD on 620 only, unless you have NBA league pass and can pick up the feed from the local provider elsewhere.

But hey, it's better than nothing. None of this is Direct TV's fault - mind you. Comcast SportsNet New England is a bunch of buffoons. This is the same channel that dropped the video feed with 4.5 seconds left in OT of the Celts-Raptors game at 6pm because they neglected to inform the simulcast transport carrier to extend their coverage if the game went into overtime. Morons.

...got Sports Pack (620SD, etc-have had it for several years); that's not the issue....I think it may be Comcasts' fault; all I know is the the people at D* have no clue about this issue....

The Heat-Celtics game, Friday, is scheduled to be shown on 95, hope there isn't a blackout; Sunday at Orlando is NBATV, so the next 2 are good, anyways....

Yep, our local 96 went away as well yesterday with the addition of Sun Sports and FSN Florida.

I checked the online guide via directv.com and it shows the game listed there too. Cross your fingers. This should be a pretty good game too with Wade back maybe 100%.

I am being blacked out on 620-1 and the League Pass channel. I am not in Heat territory, and as such I am getting the CSNE SD broadcast on 620 and in League Pass -- but am getting a 727 in error on the corresponding HD channels.
