Tonight will be the first time during the 2010-11 regular season that the Washington Capitals and Wizards play at the same time. And as CSN Washington notes on their blog, the regional sports network will broadcast both teams’ games simultaneously in HD.
As many Caps and Wizards fans know well, this was not possible in the past. Whenever the two teams play at the same time, one of them is shown on CSN and the other on CSN+, which was not available in HD until recently (see “CSN to produce all Wizards and Caps games in HD” – DC Sports Bog).
To find out where you CSN+HD channel is located, Comcast SportsNet has a page on their site where you can look up the location of any of the CSN Washington channels on your cable network.
As noted in that September post on the Sports Bog, while all the games are being produced in HD by CSN Washington, “This is no guarantee that your own provider will pick up the CSN+ HD feed…” So if you’re not seeing the CSN+HD feed as an option, you’ll need to check with your provider.
