I'm really hoping this is sorted for this year, but again -- not holding my breath.
As far as MSG HD as a channel outside the NY area, I think the way this works is that you get all the content except the games, which are blacked out in favor of the sports package. This is the way YES HD works here in LA for both DTV and FIOS.
If Gary Bettman and his much taller lackeys had the beginning of a clue, they would insist that every signal exported by every NHL team was available in HD. The difference it makes for this sport is bigger than any other. It completely changes the way the game is presented.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder
of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.
