    I received an email from HDNet today about this... and I guess I'm wondering what the news is... unless the news is that ALL Mavericks games will be in HD this year. I know there have been HD Mavericks games in past years only available on HDNet in the Dallas market.

    If they are still not going to be available out-of-market, then the announcement really just means more blackout days for HDNet for me.

    The press release on the HDNet site said the games would be on a separate feed - no blackouts.

    Where does it say that? Every reference I see (on HDNet and the email for the press release) says these games will only be available to those in the Mavericks' market.

    I think he means that you will see reguarly scheduled programs on the normal HDnet channel (9422). Last year the Mavs games were on something like ch. 9465. So, that's the channel that will have the "blackout" message on it, leaving 9422 in the clear with normal HDnet shows.

    Edit: Those are E* channel references. Forgot that I was not in an E* forum.

    Maybe he and I were just miscommunicating then. I knew the games were on a different feed than the normal programming... but it still appears as if that feed will be blacked-out for non-Mavericks markets.

    http://www.hd.net/mavsonhdnet.html#channels "Since these games are not part of our national HDNet programming, they will be provided via a special feed and may be aired by your service provider on a different channel than HDNet."

    No problem, Nick. Maybe not everyone knew that.
