    No additional charges, you will get ALL the new HD, HD Premium, and HD Sports RSNs... blackout rules still apply on the RSNs.

    How can you tell if something is Mpeg2 or 4?

    You just have to know. For now, HD locals below 70, and HD RSNs are MPEG4. Everything else is MPEG2. All of the new HD channels will be MPEG4.

    Not sure where the CSR pulled this list from... but SNY-HD and YES-HD are already up (have been for some time).

    We already get 2 KCBS, 4 KNBC, 5 KTLA CW, 7 KABC, AND 11 KTTV Fox in MPEG4 spotbeam. They are not remappings of the MPEG2 HD channels in the 80s.

    What Kayser is talking about is MPEG4 national coverage for the Los Angeles Locals for DNS.

    True but only for select people in your Region! It will become available for everyone once D10 go online. (blackout rules apply)!

    Locally in the NY market, but not nationally. The HD RSNs that are currently being spotbeamed locally, will go to national feeds with D10.

    I found another list, but it is getting to be like the TLE's and I can't be 100% sure if the info is newer or older than the last info I gave. This list is exactly the same except there are not dates (months) set for MGM, Showtime Too, and TLC.

    I'm hoping this list is older, but there is not a way to verify this right now.

    I hope I am not adding on to everyone's confusion, but I probably am.

    Versus/Golf will be in the Choice Xtra package. No word yet about grandfathering them, but since the HD is actually "new" programming (unlike the SD version) I think it will not be grandfatherd. :confused:

    After the comment earlier about YES, I checked my H20 and found both YES and NESN are coming down as HD even though the actual programming seems to be upconverted. The banner at the bottom on NESN states its HD. This is the first time I have seen either of these, though I don't watch the RSN ofter.

    mpeg4 should take a lot less space on your drive...so the percent remaining should give you an idea...

    Unfortunately this sounds right. Hockey in SD is tough after seeing it in HD.

    Of course I can recite one of those "I walked 5 miles to school in the snow when I was a kid" kind of sayings. While in college in the 60's, I actually did watch hockey on an 8" black and white .
