Last year Dish put the first two days of the masters on the hd event channel. Does anyone know if they will be doing that again?

I don't think they have the rights to do that. Your Local CBS on the digital channel only should be broadcasting the thurs fri games, So if you have CBS HD via dish you'll get it that way, otherwise you'll have to check to see if your local station does the retransmission

IIRC, last year the Thursday and Friday programs were on the Special Events Channels. They were USA promotions.

Its all well and good that CBS is broadcasting the Masters in HD on Thursday and Friday but we as E subscribers will not be able to watch it. They are broadcasting on the USA network which is digital only. Maybe they still put it on a special events program. :confused:

If we subscribe to the HD pack, we get the event for free automatically right?

Any special hoops we need to jump through to receive this?

Wiggy,

Where did you find out that Dish will be showing The Masters on the special events channel? I can't find it noted anywhere.

Use your remote to go to Guide. Go to channel 9466 and then to 12PM PDT or 9AM EDT on Thursday. It clearly says Golf is on.

I'm using the Model 6000 the program guide does not go beyond a few hours.

Sure it does, it goes for a day and a half. Just go to guide and hit the right button, BROWSE, and let it go to 12:00 on Thursday. You will get Retrieving Program Info and there it is.

Hint: Go to the dish 6000 program guide and get on the HDEvent channel. Enter the number of hours you wish to jump ahead. Enter 12 for example and then press the right arrow button. It will have to retrieve, but it should jump directly to 12 hours later in the guide.

Now that is one cool tip. BTW it works with the 811 as well, but it is almost instantaneous because of it's 2 day guide.

Cool. Watching other people play golf. All the fun and excitement of playing it, without any of the fun or excitement. Next thing you know, they'll televise other people driving. Oh...I see. Nevermind.
