Anyone else notice the Rangers (on MSG 2) are on HD on 579?

Beat me to the punch. Very cool. Was resigned to choosing between devils announcers or SD.

I'm on DirecTV myself but a friend of mine on FiOS told me about this. Great news for FiOS customers! Didn't expect them to get the alternate channels this quickly.

I suppose they're only going to activate it if there's a game?

MSG SD & HD are all screwed up this morning. Cablevision's way of revenge?

Guide data is there. What I meant by all messed up is the signal is F'd up. The screen was green and full of static.

The channel is only active when there's a game regardless of provider, MSG and MSG+ are the only 24/7 channels.

Verizon carries a simulcast of the main channel when the extra game is not on, so it really is on 24/7 on Verizon.

Interesting. On Cablevision/iO and DirecTV the channels are only active for pre-game, gametime, and post-game.

I know nysports, but that was the only way Verizon could set it up. Cablevision was not happy with that setup when Verizon first started carrying the SD channels.

Verizon is stepping up to the plate in 2012...the only point of MSG 2 is for overflow games so it's good to see it now available on FiOS

The "Press C" issue should be resolved or get resolved soon too.

I wish Verizon would have used that space for MSG2 HD and added another HD channel...I'm not a hockey fan so the overflow games don't matter to me because I'm mainly interested in the Knicks who are always on MSG

I mean if MSG2 is showing the exact same content as MSG HD for 20 hours a day then what's the real point?...the only time it matters is those 3-4 hours when a new game is shown...this is worse then the West Coast feeds of HBO, Cinemax etc...at least those have a 3 hour delay...with MSG it's the exact same content...surely Verizon could have added Cartoon Network or BBC-America HD instead of MSG2

That space was already allocated for local programming in HD. It doesn't count on their nationwide HD space.

National channel adds are not the same as regional/local channel/RSN adds....
