    First of all: When is CES?
    Secondly: Since Comcast owns Verses and it's HD channel (INHD) don't the Comcast customers already get both channels?

    There is currently no HD Golf Channel. Yes, Comcast customers currently
    get HD Versus ice hockey on INHD. There is talk of other Versus programming
    in HD other than ice hockey on the new channel.

    On the Genral Forum - someone is talking about Direct TV getting exclusive rights to MLB package. Can anyone confirm this?

    Just browsing around I found that Direct TV has CSN Chicago in HD 24/7. If DISH doesn't come through by September when my contract is up - I will be forced to switch even though I like the DISH VIP622 features.

    AS i get ready to switch to D* cuz NESN HD probably won't be on E* any time soon I called D* to make sure NESN was one of my RSN, I live in VT. I been told twice by D* that FOX New England is my RSN and not NESN and I would have to buy the sports package to get NESN. I know they are wrong but how can they be that stupid. :mad: Also switching scares me because of the D* HR20 problems. Why can't E* just get me my NESN HD. :mad:

    Maybe we will know more after the CES. I just have to wait until my contract is up, but hopefully Dish will wake up soon.

    But will you get NESN HD with E* if/when they start broadcasting it, is NESN SD your RSN now with E*? Is NESN the RSN on cable there?

    You might also want to check this link, http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageIF.jsp?assetId=P3000004 to see what your RSN's are according to D*. If it also says FSN NE then you might have a fight getting NESN, especially in HD.

    Everyone who has or had D* gets NESN- Cable and E* give us NESN - a D# dealer told me I get NESN- just annoyed thaT d* CUSTOMER SERVICE DOESNT KNOW IT-
    edit- I should approach D* from another direction and ask them what areas qualify for NESN- and they will answer New England and then I'll tell them where Vermont is- on their own website they describe NESN as a RSN for New England.
    I LIVE IN NEW ENGLAND.

    Where abouts are you in VT? I plugged in a VT zip code and you will get both FSN-NE and NESN HD. So I don't think those CSR's knew what they were talking about.

    I'm in St. Albans and the zip for ST. A and Burlington don't show NESN- some other VT zips do show NESN- - I'm 99% sure I'll get it but damn it's pissing me off

    My search above was from running Springfiled, (picked it out the blue) which is in the southern part of the state. Then I ran your zip and Montpelier. Your zip did not show NESN at all, while Montpelier showed NESN SD Red Sox games only, no Bruins. I still don't understand how they determine who gets which RSN's.

    Like I said I know I get it but... If I use MLB I'm blacked out of Sox games so I know the market is right. I'd rather keep E* but I do want NESN HD.

    If it's nearby, simply change your service address to the needed zipcode.

    I had the idea to go to MLB and see what my blackout area is and my zip is blacked for Red Sox games which means I get a Sox broadcast- NESN-- I just want to win the arguement with one of D* CSR.

    No doubt. I am still wondering why this thread was not locked long ago.

    It doesn't matter how bad you want to win or how righteous you think you are.

    If you can find a D* subscriber in your immediate area with NESN, then there is a chance that you can get it too. I'm betting you will be disappointed on both counts.

    Remember that E* and D* can choose any one of several DMA maps and whatever they choose, they must stick with even if the subsequent maps change. It could turn out that E* will offer NESN where D* cannot because of their map choice.
