    I saw a new D* commercial last night with the guys from Entourage. It was the same type that we have all seen already (Shatner in ST4, Lloyd in Back to the Future, etc). In this one, at the end Turtle says something like "and you know I've got to have my Knicks in HD."

    Does that mean he is subscribing to cable?

    Huh?

    Let's see. NBA Channel. When they play the Lakers, Clippers (since they are in LA).

    The OP is correct, the commercial is misleading.

    Yeah the Entourage boys are in LA, which changes thing a little bit, but the fact is here in the NY area you see a lot more of the Knicks (and Rangers) in HD on cable than you do on DirecTV.

    And outside NY you don't see a lot of the Knicks in HD either.

    Because you see more on cable means it is misleading????

    They turned down one game at the Lakers. He says he wants to see his Knicks in HD. All it says is that the Knicks are on that night in HD.

    I give up. This knick-picking is over the top. Go watch a soap commercial and nit-pick it.

    Oh, and the country doesn't see much of the Knicks because they suck.

    if they are seeing the knicks in HD i'd like to know what channel they are watching... b/c i've been waiting on MSGHD and FSNNY-HD for quite a while.

    I think any D* sub in the NY RSN area with HD and who's a Sports fan caught the error. I saw it during the VNC-Duke game on CBS ch. 80 last night and it stood out like a sore thumb.

    Well, this is interesting. I was checking the Guide data and it shows a NHL game, Penguins @ NY Rangers, for 7PM EST on Mon. the 19th. I'd have to believe a HD game from the Garden would only be provided by MSG, unless this is a Vs. game.
