    I just recently got notice of a channel change on my SA TIVO, added channels 95, 96, 97, 98. They all say HDSE. Does this mean we are getting four new HD channels, or will I get another channel change about them being deleted?

    By the way, why does my SA TIVO always keep me informed of channel changes, but the HD TIVO never does?

    I was watching the Oilers-Ducks game on 95 yesterday, and saw a bunch of upcoming sporting events, notably baseball. Does everyone get those, only those who subscribe to Sports Pack, or MLBEI, or HD Pack, or ...?

    It's a free preview weekend so just because I can see it today may not mean it's always available. And the hockey was on OLN, which is part of TC+.

    From what i see those are HD sports channels. 95 is for MLB games in HD. i'm sure during football season they'll also be used.

    I checked a baseball game this weekend on Ch. 95 and it gave me an x721 message, so apparently it was part of MLBEI. I saw the Ducks game last night, though.

    Channel 95 is used for all manner of HD sports broadcasts. If the game they show on 95 is part of a sports subscription (such as a Yankees game on YES for those outside the New York area) you won't be able to watch unless you subsribe to that package. Last night's NHL game was available to everyone because it was on OLN, not a subscription package.
