Re: Free NHL PREVIEW

said by aaronwt:

Are any of those channels using MPEG4?

Actually, ALL five (Ch. 1470 through Ch. 1474) of the NHL Center Ice/Major League Baseball HD Season Package Channels are now MPEG-4. They are all located at 297 MHz (QAM RF Ch. 36) and only decode audio on MPEG-2 clear QAM tuner TV sets. So customers with QIP 6200 and QIP 6416 boxes will get no free preview in HD, but will receive SD channels only.

As was mentioned Fios will ship a free 7xxx upgrade to anyone who subscribes to the package.

Definitely very cool of them to do that. Sooner they get those old boxes out of circulation the better.

A reminder NBC is streaming both games on the web, »nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/45340521/

and if you don't have Verizon Wireless you can use the NBC Sports Live Extra App to watch either game.

You're right all 5 HD channels are MPEG-4. I just had an issue with this trying to watch them on a non-Xbox 360 Media Center Extender since it doesn't support MPEG-4 and the same goes with the TiVo HD. I wonder when VZ moved the first two of these channels over to MPEG-4.
