Here on Long Island - why don't we get the MSG Networks in HD?  Is it some lame Cablevision thing to try to make a reason for people to subscribe to their lousy service by holding back the HD channels?

They have been telling me for a year they are getting it but I think they keep on saying this to shut me up.  In the beginning they didn't even have MSG and Cabelvision gave them hell before letting them have those channels.  {please keep it relevant}

That is correct. Cablevision will not let Verizon carry the HD versions. They claim that they took the initiative to produce it, so they don't have to sell it to other providers. We'll see what happens when MSG is spun off as a separate business, supposedly by the end of the year.

I'll post here to make it official:

 

Please return CSN+ Mid Atlantic to Howard County, MD FiOS channel line up.

 

I joined FiOS in January 2009 and we got CSN+ on channel 1 through the end of the Caps' 2008/09 season. Now it has been taken away.

 

The Washington Capitals and Wizards play their home games at Verizon Center. If it's worth paying for the naming rights to their arena then is it not worth carrying all their games?

Come on VZ - TCN Philaedelphia [edit] Comcast has made it perfectly clear that the channel IS available if VZ wants to purchase it.  Tonight is ANOTHER Flyers game we'll be missing even though your sales reps in August when we signed up VERY clearly said "all Flyers games are on Fios".  {please keep your posts courteous}and add TCN.

First, every big cable and sat provider except Verizon carries CSN+ in MD and VA. It baffles me why Verizon would think this channel is important enough to carry in the DC Metro area, but not include it for the rest of the CSN DC area. DirecTV has even figured out a way to carry games from The Comcast Network (DC) without carrying the whole channel.

 

Second, carrying The Comcast Network in the CSN Philly region would make Verizon a true competitor to Comcast. The lack of some Flyers, 76ers, and Phillies games is the only thing keeping a lot of people from leaving Comcast. This baffles me too, since we all know that Verizon execs are smart enough to know this.

 

I just don't get it. I have to go now so I can go to a sports bar to watch the Caps game.

Please add CSN+ to AA County Maryland.  It can't take up much bandwidth, it's the blurriest channel even on Comcast.
