I am hearing that has been added because of something to do with Sirius. (In other word Sirius had a hand in bringing CSTV to Dish) :)

I wonder if CSTV is going to be a factor since ESPN announced that they are starting a 24 hr college sports channel, ESPNU? CSTV may have a real difficult time competing with the resources that ESPN has available.

nope - I would guess it has more to do with the Mountain West Conf getting football and basketball on CSTV (they just switched from ESPN). MWC has a bunch of teams around Littleton - coincedence? I think not...

NEW YORK, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- INHD, cable's most widely distributed
all high-definition network, has teamed up with CSTV: College Sports
Television, (http://www.collegesports.com) to broadcast numerous top
collegiate sports telecasts live, in high definition, starting with the
Brigham Young at Stanford college football match-up Saturday, September 11,
2004 from Palo Alto, CA (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT). The announcement was made by
Senior Vice President of Programming of iN DEMAND Networks, David Asch and Co-
Founder and Executive Vice President of CSTV, Chris Bevilacqua.
The agreement provides INHD the right to air the events in high
definition, while CSTV will simultaneously carry the standard definition
broadcasts. The co-produced telecasts will include regular season football,
basketball, ice hockey, baseball, volleyball, soccer, water polo and swimming
events, as well select conference tournaments and NCAA National Championships.
Under the agreement, INHD has also acquired rights for encore presentations.
This is the second consecutive year INHD will produce live college sports with

best possible viewing experience available on television."
"High-definition telecasts enhance the intensity, energy and pageantry of
college sports, making for a more compelling viewing experience for fans,"
said Bevilacqua. "Our partnership with iN DEMAND is consistent with CSTV's
mission of using the latest technologies to connect college sports fans with
college sports anytime, anywhere, anyplace. These telecasts will bring
viewers closer than ever to the action."

Not to be a wet towel on this celebration, but let's wait until the channel is announced and available. I still remember how we were *sure* to be getting YES Network back in March or April ... :(

I somewhat agree with what you are saying, but YES Network was never in the testing stage as CSTV is. There is even EPG data in the stream.

YES network was uplinked on channel 411 back when it first launched for a few weeks. :) It obviously never came to pass. But that doesn't happen very often.

See ya
