Here's another article of interest on this subject- http://www.explorehoward.com/news/68694/absent-games-has-verizon-thin-ice-with-caps-fans/

 

No one ever seems to mention Richmond or Hampton Roads. Smiley Sad

Guess I'll be making plans to head to a bar tommorow that will carry the Islanders game...by the time this does get fixed, the CSN+ portion of the Caps schedule will be done--and I will be counting the days to when I can call Comcast to get hooked up and have FiOS disconnected...I've complained about this ever since I got FiOS almost THREE YEARS ago....I'm glad they finally listened to somebody's complaints.  But it's too late...I'm going to go back to Comcast after hockey season is done--only because my CenterIce pkg. won't transfer...

One more Caps game left on CSN+ this season. Will we finally get the channel next week, or will we still be waiting? Will Verizon's solution include the April game on the Comcast Network? What channel will this solution appear on?

I'm just full of questions today....

Good news! I just saw on another forum that Friday's Caps game has been moved from CSN+ to CSN and the Wizards will be on CSN+ instead. Since that was supposed to be the last CSN+ game for the Caps, we'll be able to see the rest of the games this season. Then hopefully, by next season this thread will be resolved.

Thanks for posting this. I went to csnwashington.com and it does show that the Wiz - Magic game is now on CSN+, and the Thrashers - Caps will be HD on CSN. Maybe they had a problem getting an HD truck in Orlando. CSN has their own HD truck for home games.

 

There is one game in April scheduled to be on the Comcast Network, and ironically it's the Thrashers at Caps. I hope Verizon's "solution" won't have to share a channel with MASN2, and will be able to show this game. Verizon is saying now that they will have a solution in place "very soon". In any case, thank you to everyone who has posted here over the season. We were able to get Verizon to listen to us and finally take action to get the rest of these games that are available to them. I consider this to be quite a feat considering how difficult it is to get their attention. In the process, we also got the attention of Ted Leonsis and the people at CSN. Hopefully this will result in a better product from CSN next season.

 

I don't think we can possibly ask for a better product from Ted...

Dan Steinberg from the Washington Post posted this on his twitter this evening:

 

"Verizon FIOS will announce today that all counties in the Metro area will get CSN+, starting tonight"

This is great news! According to the CSN website, CSN+ is channel 334 in Howard, Anne Arundel, and Baltimore Counties, as well as in the Tidewater and Richmond areas and it's on channel 1 in Fredericksburg, Charles, Montgomery, and Prince Georges Counties.

Mike Holden derserves all the credit for getting the ball rolling on this and getting a solution for us.  MY calls to Verizon over the last three+ years didn't help.  Big props to Mike Holden. No CSN+HD, but at least I'll be able to watch CSN+ games at home from now on and not have to travel to BFE to find someplace that has the game on.
