CBS Sports Network HD?

Just saw test signals on 594 (94 is CBSSN SD) this morning in VHO3. Does this mean CBS Sports Network HD is finally coming?

This was the shutdown of Olympic BBall channel. same on 596, Olympic Soccer here.. So maybe, maybe not. I know 689 is now testbars but guide ID's as BBCAmerica HD... but "all channels" guide does not define 594 + 596 yet.

Thanks... makes sense

I have not seen test patterns on 594 since they took all the Olympics channels out of the Guide, here in VHO7, but I would welcome the addition of the channel in HD. Any channel, esp a Sports channel, is always better in HD.

On a side note: I am surprised that they took those channels off so soon. It took them months to get the FiOS1 3D channel (1003) off the Guide last year, as well as changing the IFC channels and the Smithsonian HD Channel. For those two, the "Channel has moved.." message took a very long time to get off the Guide, not to mention you could not tune into those channel at all either.

But I do hope that soon, they add another 3D channel in that 1003 spot. Like 3net. I Know that channel is not exclusively loyal to the provider that it is currently on, and I really think that we do need at least 1 more 3D channel.

As of now, ESPN3D is not cutting it anymore. It is a good channel for those once-in-a-while Baseball Games, College Games, and XGames. However, I can't wait until 2014, when ESPN is in their new contract, and starts broadcasting Monday Night Football in 3D (or so I have heard). That should be good.

Thanks for putting up with my little IMHO outburst, lol .

CBS could have forced their hand by having some big name programming on it, like the NCAA tourney. While I would love to have it in HD, I probably would never watch it. Minor league football, hockey, Jim Rome, PBR, lacrosse? No thanks. Many of those are shown on other networks in HD.

I'm totally with you...I hope Verizon adds 3net...that's definitely the 3D channel with the best content...I agree that ESPN 3D is getting stale

According to Customer Support the next HD channel might be univision deportes network 596, I'm not sure how accurate that information is.

the only one of those that is HD is Univision Deportes as Uverse has those channels and they don't have FOROtv and TLnovelas is not in HD.

Been doing that since the Olympics ended. Channels 594/596 haven't been removed yet.

in VHO 7 , both 594, and 596 have been removed from the Guide since a day after the Olympics were over.

Ever since, no test patterns have been put up on either of those channels. Same goes for ch. 1003

I'm in VHO7 and I still have test paterns on both, at least it was a couple of hours ago

I still stick to my previous post. Nothing has changed.

I have noticed today that the test patterns are back on channels 594 and 596. They were taken off as soon as the Olympics were over. At least in my area. The 3D ch. 1003 is not up, as the other two channels are.

Now you can access them by channel up or down, and putting the ch. number into the Guide. However they do no show up in the Guide, and both channels say: "Program Information Not Available."

Can this be an indication of one or two additional HD channel coming soon? Or is it a glitch, and the channels just appeared again here, but Never were taken off of test patterns in other VHO's? Sort of how when the IFC channels moved to another location, and Smithsonian channel as well. Those "old" channel were up in the Guide for months before they were taken off the Guide.

Haha. Here's hoping for both those channels, in those slots, and in HD soon.

CBS Sports Network and PAC-12 HD?

If these two channels would be added that would be awesome.

Re: CBS Sports Network HD?

Longhorn Network HD didn't get national distribution. Pac-12 Network HD will probably not either.

CBS Sports HD would be nice, but I suspect the three remaining slots are going to Cartoon Network HD, ESPN Deportes, and Univision Deportes.

How are we getting 3 slots, 4 if you count BBCA, from two Olympic channels?

There was a 3D channel as well, so that's another QAM with two open slots.

There is no comparison b/w the PAC 12 Network and the soon to be defunct Longhorn Network.

I don't see anything great about CBS Sports Network. They usually just air bottom barrel college games.

This is where I disagree. I prefer watching bottom barrel (as you call them) NCAA baseketball games as they have players who are looking for an education and not just staying a year and moving on to the NBA. So bring on CBS Sports Network.

Be that as it may, if CBS wants it added, they need to have higher ratings. That seems to be Verizon's first indicator.

With the US Open Tennis Coverage airing on CBSSN it would be nice to have the HD channel.
