    NBC Universal Sports?

    I watch it on 4-3 OTA in the Wash-Balt area. I just wish they'd: A) Show some curling, and B) Show up in my OTA TV Guide

    Big Ten to Expand?

    I have no dog in this hunt (Hail to the Towson Tigers, We're true to the Black and Gold) but who the heck went to a 17,000 student high school? :D

    Which WD EHD is better?

    With the 211, you only have one DISH tuner and one OTA tuner. You can watch DISH while recording OTA, watch OTA while recording DISH, or watch something on your DVR while recording both DISH and OTA. I use it mainly for time shifting and watching commercial free. With a large enough EHD...

    How much did you pay for your first C-Band dish?

    Paid about $2000 w/install for a KTI 10 footer and a Panasonic IRD in 1990. Added Ku for about $300 a couple of years later.

    But sucking looks a lot better in HD!

    No Whitesox in HD on 429? ADD HD RSNS ALLREADY!

    I sent my monthly complaint about the lack of ANY MASNHD and got a reply that was more on point for why DISH does the HD shuffle than why they don't carry MASNHD at all: ______________________________________________ Thank you for your e-mail. We appreciate your feedback. We currently...

    Multi-Sports Package - 29 Local Sports?

    I picked up the sports pack last fall because my alma mater-Towson University-was playing Northwestern in football and I needed Big 10 to see it. Since then I've enjoyed it for out-of-market college sports and coaches shows and the like. Also the CFL. I was surprised this winter by the fact...

    MLB Network campaign against DishNet

    I agree, to a point. I don't mind DISH having part time HDRSNs or occasionally missing an HD broadcast. I do mind the selectivity of which RSNs they are going to contract for in HD and the fact that this year I'll see none of my RSNs 315 or so HD broadcasts. I admit that it is true that...

    Changes coming for RTV programming

    That's because TV Land Canada in actually Canadian owned and they pay to use the TV Land name. I'm no expert, but they do have to carry a percentage of Canadian content in order to exist. They used to carry "Smith and Smith", a sketch comedy show from the early '80s featuring Steve Smith (Red...

    DISH Network sues DIRECTV Over Ads

    The Gong Show I've Got a Secret (actually, either company could use this one. The secret is: XX% of my national HD services don't show any real HD programming.)

    Statement from DISH - Not Getting the New HD?

    I'm pretty sure that they can give you the 1000.4 Eastern Arc dish-one dish for 61.5/72.7/77. I haven't been upset with the reception, signal strength here has been fine. Good luck.

    Statement from DISH - Not Getting the New HD?

    Did you proceed with the cancellation or did you lockdown that free upgrade? :D

    Charlie Chat Monday Night

    But he'll put it on 118 and make everyone take a $95 upgrade! My personal question continues to be "Where's MASN HD?" :)

    Over 275 MLB games in HD. How many will E* show?

    MASN plans to show virtually all Nats and Orioles games in HD. Since I'm sticking with DISH, I'll see NONE of them. Boy I hope MPEG4 SD is a HUGE improvement over my old setup. :rolleyes:

    MLB Preseason games blacked out?

    What I don't get is how often "classic" games are blacked out. I understand blacking out live games, I'll even accept the rebroadcast of a current game being blacked out, but a game from three years ago shown in January should not be subject to blackout. Since they are blacked out sometimes...

    Los Angeles is now one step closer to bringing back the NFL

    Which is fascinating because I would have argued the exact same thing about Oakland when the Raiders were in LA. There must be something about Al Davis which makes fans like him more from afar... None of the Canadian venues would be of NFL caliber except Toronto and the refurbed BC Place...
