Does anyone know if we can get this channel? They advertise it all the time, but I can't find it anywhere. :(

I do not think so.... I'd think Comcast wouldn't want to share such a channel (license it) for they are not friendly with one another - and comcast wants as much value-add programming to influence folks to subscribe to their network.

Well, i'm in Maryland, and if you're referring to Comcast Sportsnet HD, then yes we do get that channel, its like 249 or something. Just check the guide. That having been said, i have YET to see programming that looks like its HD on that channel...

EDIT - WOW disregard my post, i thought i was in the Comcast section, not DirecTV...sorry!

I think sports is the exception because it's not Comcast Original Content, and it's part of the regional sports networks that Directv has elected to carry (and pay for) and re-distribute to subscribers.
