Where did YES Network HD go?

I am curious to know what happened to the YES network being broadcast in HD. I havent seen one N.J Nets game yet , and I live in the region for them. I saw a whole bunch of thier games last year on Ch.95 , but seems like they dont show any YES games anymore. I see that the games are shown on the YES guide as being in HD, but im not getting any of them. Are they showing up on another HD channel that im not seeing , or is this because I am only set up with the 3lnb dish still ? I m curious to know if anyone else is missing the YEs in HD . Im scheduled for a new dish in Feb. I hope this helps with my HD content ! Thanks .

YES HD is not a national HD channel on DTV yet. It is regional to NY, and you need the 5 LNB dish to get it.

They show many baseball games on 95 in the summer, but that's not the full time YES HD. The full time YES HD is only spot beamed to the correct area right now, but again, you need the new equipment to get it.

Same goes for NESN HD.

Rumor has it that both YES and NESN HD will be added nationally later this year, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

I had a feeling it had to do with the 5lnb dish. I know that YES has the interactive set up so you can watch different camera angles and stuff like that. I just hope I can get it in time for the Yanks. I have my fingers crossed for my Feb 14th appointment to get the new dish along with the h-20 receiver installed. I hope everything goes as planned. Thanks Hitdog042 !

You do not get YES full time HD, which is what he's asking.

I live in NJ and I watched the Nets play the Bulls the other night on 95. I only have a 3lnb dish. I would still love to have the NY Fox sport net HD and MSG HD. I am so sick of seeing the commercial "Only on cable." Blasted Cablevision. They are the reason why no media provider should ever own a sports team. I wish the NJ Devils would play on YES.
