    Ok so the guide says PGA golf for tomorrows' Pens / Rangers Stanley Cup playoff game...this better not be true...if so enough is enough, I understand real-time golf like masters, u.s open, hell any live pga tourney being that golf is more popular than, well everything in the U.S.... but seriously, if the game isn't in HD tomorrow thats ground to leave because you can guarantee its in HD on cable as VErsus/GF says so on Comcasts cable, so I guess I am beotching for nothing its just our guide screwed up?

    Apparently at least with D*, is that they are taking the VS HD feed not the Golf HD feed. Not sure about E*s plans.

    LinkNuc,

    The normal schedule for the VS/Golf HD Shared Channel is for Golf Channel to get the use of VS/Golf HD each Thursday and Friday evening. While this is true VS is preempting all GOLF content on VS/Golf HD for Thursdays and Fridays until the end of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    Tribune provides data for Dish EPG and it appears that the proper NHL Schedule for the VS/GOLF HD channel is not populated until the Day before at the latest.

    John

    Tonight's schedule didn't even say which game was on till the coverage started. It was the same way with the first round of playoffs.

    You know...I'm seriously beginning to hate this shared channel. Why one Earth do we get stupid ass golf shows late at night, when on the regular VS feed, there's MMA fight stuff on. I wanna see my bloody armlock submissions in HD dammit!

    Still sore about the sweep in 92? You guys even enshrined the loss on the mural in the Sears Tower!

    Let me hijack this thread for a second. If I am on AT 200 with HD essentials, do I need to go to AT 250 to get VS. or just HD ultimate?


    thanks,

    250 with Hd essentials. I don't believe you can get the HD without the SD.

    I usually add 250 for then next two months and then eat the $5 downgrade fee to go back to 200 after the playoffs.

    It was a great game...almost game me a heart attack:D . It was funny how everyone had a white jersey on and the home team wore blacks!!!(to an outsider it looked more like it was the NYR who were at home)

    PENS 1-0 :)

    Thats exactly what I do every year. Hockey is awesome in HD and a lot of the playoff games are on Versus.

    Yup game looked good but and it was a good one, if the Pens win tomorrow fah get abbout it....anyway if things hold true NBC's PQ will be better tomorrow or at least I have seen that Vs hocky is a slight bit grainy and I have a 120Hz Tv...really though it doesn;t make that much of a difference but I notced FSN and NBC Hockey is a sharper pic....
