    any ways likely one of area FSN will likely go away or get down graded to a part time over flow.

    Are HD cameras used there yet? I know in the Tour de France, the networks airing coverage have no control over the feeds, cameras etc. So they had no control on whether the Tour was broadcast in HD or not.

    Not gonna happen. D* has never downgraded a channel to part time.

    No, but RSNs have been dropped before they went off the air.

    How does this compare to the problem up here in Portland Oregon with CSN-NW? I understand there is a Major difference in quality of programming Lakers v Blazers. But. What else is there? Or is that reason enough that CSN-NW has not "given" the channel to DirecTV or Dish?

    well FSN prime ticket may be come just a part time feed with fsn san Diego going full time. On lot's of cable systems FSN SD is a game only feed.

    But if prime ticket get's cut down you may just have FSN WEST and SAN Diego with a few over flow feeds / feeds to cover area blackouts.

    Not gonna happen. It'll remain how it is now. FS SD only has one pro team. FS West and Prime Ticket have several.

    It was relevant to your post about not downgrading RSNs from full time to part time. And to Joe's point about one going away potentially.

    As I understand, CSNNW is available but the price is unreasonable.

    HD cameras are used at the Giro (hence the 16 x 9 SD pictures we are getting), but Universal Sports is not yet in HD from any provider. I was in Amsterdam two years ago during the Giro, and it was shown in HD in the Netherlands.

    All of the cycling events on NBS Sports are in HD.

    While the Giro is not shown in the US in HD, the SD is actually better now that Universal Sports is on DirecTV than it was when Universal Sports was a sub-channel on my local NBC station.

    I was hoping that Universal Sports would have been in HD by the start of the Giro. Since that did not happen, here is hoping it will be in HD before the start of the Vuelta a Espana.

    That is essentially my point.
    How much will DirecTV pay for the LA Sports station?
    Will that price drive up or down the CSNNW price?
    What is a reasonable price for a Sports Channel in LA? In Portland? In Philly?

    Time Warner doesn't have 80% of the la market. They may have that much of la proper but they don't have that much of the la Dma, much less the lakers territory.
