Baseball question

03-30-2010, 10:20 AM
Hi Folks, Just have a baseball related question to ask.

First my setup: I have America's Top 200, Local=Milwaukee, Fox Sports North, and Big Ten network. When I became a customer of Dish last october(after moving), I called and asked for the package so I could get whatever channels to be able to recieve Milwaukee Bucks games, I recieved whatever I have listed and am able to recieve the pregame, the game and postgame programming(although for every game I have to search for the channel it is on, it seems the games are never on the same channel, one game to the next). The one wierd thing about this is, even though I get the Bucks games on different channels , I recieve the regular programming on FSN North only on Minnesota subjects, never Wisconsin subjects(thats a whole different subject, nevermind).

Ok now it's baseball season, and I want to be able to watch the Brewers. Before I moved to where I am now, I had TWC, but since moving I have Dish. On TWC you had the option of watching the games in HD or SD on TWC. From my setup, you can see I do not have a HD reciever. On TWC every game was on channels 31(SD) and 531(HD)(Unless of course it was a National viewed game then it was on Fox 6).

So the question is, Does Dish also show baseball games in both HD and SD versions?

I work 3-11 pm during the week, so I probably won't be seeing most of the games anyway, but on weekends it would be nice to sit back and watch a game on a Hot and Humid lazy afternoon.

Oh well, Thanks for reading this and if you have any answers, I will be happy to read them.

I am pretty sure they show them in both SD and HD.

I'm hoping that is true, thanks for your reply

DIsh uses temporary uplinks for local RSNs in HD, they will show only the game and if you try to record it, your recording will probably start just before the HD RSN is turned on so it willnot switch and you get a blank screen. To record use manual timers and start one minute LATE.
