Depends on who is playing. The Maverick HD games are broadcast by HDNET but show up on the Dish Special Events channel and are only available to subscibers in the Dallas market. Also make sure you have the NBATV HD PKG on your pay per view. Purchases should say $0.00 and it will list the next game that is to be broadcast.
Yes i have a dish 500 system and get the special events channel.. I have AEP and the HD pak.. Oh yes and i too have the 811.. I had to wait two weeks for my macro hit to my reciever.. If you get nbatv you are able or should be able to get SE channel.. Ther are a few different combination you can have .. If you have multi sports and the HD pak. If you have the NBA pak and HD pak.. If you have A top 180 and above with HD pak.. I know for sure if a person gets lucky enough and get the right csr that they can hit the reciever with the Macro update.. I do not understand why this takes so long but i have only been with dish for 3 month and counting. Hope this helps..
