Hi, I am new to the forum and a long time Dish subscriber.

I am upgrading to an HD set and I was shocked yesterday to hear that Dish does not carry NESN in HD.

Is NESN HD a seperate channel? If so, how many subscribers must they be losing from Red Sox fans?

NESN HD is operated by COMCAST and is not made available to the satellite companies, and this is not available on cable. It is however available on select cable systems.

NESN HD is a seperate channel from the regular NESN and is operated by COMCAST who is footing the bills for the HD Telecast.

On CableTV there is no NESN HD chanel, instead NESN HD preempts IN HD or INHD2.

Select games MAY be made available to Dish Network later on in the season. Which is good news.

All the cable companies that are carrying NESN-HD help pay for the HD.

And yes NESN HD is available as a 24/7 channel now, go to the website and it will list which cable systems are carrying the channel 24/7

NESN HD also wants the same policy has HDnet, no down converting according to a buddy who works there.

Comcast won't even give NESN HD a full time channel even though they have at least 10hr a day in HD on game days. Comcast didn't even help buying equipment. EMC is the one who started to help in 2004, and even help convert all tapes to digital storage.

Look at FSN New England, Rainbow Media spent a bunch of money to do almost every Celtics home game in HD, and Comcast only carried 60% of them even if the Bruins or Sox preseason didn’t have a game.
