Re: [HD] VHO-5 WLNY TV (10/55 HD)

said by matcarl:

Summer of 2013 is not what I would consider "within" the year, it's more than a year and probably will get put off even more and when Verizon adds it, it will be even later, so don't get your hopes up

While I am quite cynical about FIOS channel adds as well, there are "must carry" laws that the cable companies have to comply with for local channels.

But does "must carry" apply to HD? I assume carrying the SD feed satisfies the "must carry" requirement.

Dave - any published schedule or information about when the last of the MSG-HD channels will or won't be added? It would be nice to see ALL of the Rangers, Devils, Islanders, Knicks and Brooklyn Nets games in HD once the seasons commence. IIRC, the plan was to get the remaining channel(s) added, no?

On most broadcast channels there is NO SD feed.

true but cable companies can downconvert hd feeds if they have bandwith constraints. for example time warner downconverts must carry njtv here in nyc. they carry njtv in sd only even though he channel broadcasts in hd.

Nets are a YES network property, not MSG.

They were added months ago. Channels 578 through 581.

As I posted that I was thinking that the Nets were probably on another channel, but I wanted to give them some DSLR exposure now that they've upgraded their locale.

Early July is next week. Have they committed to an actual date yet?
