MSG HD is Coming

Message 1 of 55
(3,227 Views)

I was at a Verizon store today and I happened to ask about when I would be able to see MSG in HD (not expecting an answer) but I was told you have it already, then I was told she would check. So after my transaction I was told that Nov. 30th is the Day!!!!!

I only hope that that is true!! But it would be great if it is.

It's a NY thing, Hockey, Basketball on Madison Square Garden Network which has only been available in SD may finally be available in HD.

Big news for Tristate area sports fans.

I think I would rather have BBC America HD. Anyway there are to many blackouts on MSG from what I have heard.

AVS Shows what I want coming soon. I hope MSG does not bump it.

I guess that might be fair for all those that have had a fit about DAC3 and our VHOs get 1.9 first. Bump E!Smiley Tongue

There are no blackouts on MSG for whatever region you are in. In the Buffalo area, MSG shows every Sabres game not on a national network. Same thing goes in the NY area for the Rangers, Devils, Islanders, and Knicks. The only "blackouts" in these regions would be on Versus or NHL Network, if they were showing a game to the rest of the country that's already on MSG.

I guess the only thing left for Verizon customers to wonder about is MSG 2/+2 games in HD. These were only on Cablevision on "iO Sports HD" but I've heard that they have recently shown up on DirecTV in HD. I didn't think Cablevision would have given up these feeds to anyone else, especially right now.

MSG is the only way we Buffalo Sabres fans can watch our local hockey team.  The only way we could watch the HD broadcast was to subscribe to Time Warner, everyone else is stuck with SD.

 

 

I love hockey, but even that love is not enough for me to transfer back to Time Warner.

I am not in that area. But this is what I was refering to. It could be totally wrong. But I would still rather have BBCA HD.Smiley Happy

Actually there are Blackout rules for MSG, they just are unlikely to kick in.  Thinks like low ticket sales.

Low ticket sales only affect TV blackouts in the NFL. None of the leagues on MSG have blackout rules that have anything to do with ticket sales.
