I have the standard STO channel, and on Direct's website it lists HD Available, but I do not list an HD feed of this channel. Will one be on before tomorrow nights game? Have they carried this channel before?

You may want to post this in the appropriate DirecTV Forum instead of the Dish Network Forum.

Rumors are D* will be adding it on channel 657-1 as a game only RSN for now. We'll find out tomorrow morning. Later this summer it will go 24x7 on D* (once D11 is operational).

No Hd Indians Game On Sportstime Ohio!!

Just heard that tonights Cleveland Indians game on channel 657 (STO) will not be in HD. Tomorrows game will not be in HD either. This is sad! They say it is due to bandwidth issues.
One of the best teams in MLB and no HD. Betcha Royals, D-Rays, Twins will be in HD. :mad:

Ok, it's safe to say a dedicated channel (657-1) won't be up for STO-HD today. What HD channel will the Indian's be on tonight? They are playing on STO, but there is nothing in my guide on channel 96 and it's 6:15. T-minus 45 minutes till first pitch!!!! Help!

I remember last year, channel 96 would often go live an hour before game time to show the pregame show with Bruce Drennan. Well, Bruce is on the 657 SD channel, but still nothing on channel 96!

DirecTV will NOT air tonight's Indians game or tomorrow afternoon's Indians game on STO HD. Bandwidth constraints is the reason, because of the many NBA, NHL and MLB HD games. They should have room for the April 4th STO HD Indians game. DirecTV customers can voice their displeasures at DIRECTV - E-mail Us.

Any special reason that Directv continues to pick on Cleveland sports fans?

The Indians are one of the best baseball teams and are a no-show in HD, while lesser teams seem to be available in HD.

Go figure !

Guess it makes sense, all the HD PPV channels are down tonight, that's what they usually do when they have a bunch of game only RSN's fire up.

That's really unacceptable. I guess Directv is truly the parttime hd sports leader.
