Some people have landed on the blog today after searching for things like “what channel is the caps game on tonight”. There seems to be a bit of confusion about what channel tonight’s playoff game vs. the New York Rangers will be on and that’s understandable.
As recently as last night, the guide on my FiOS was telling me Comcast SportsNet was going to be carrying poker and basketball instead. But don’t worry if you saw that too. It’s incorrect and today, in the guide on my FiOS at least, the Caps game is now listed as being on CSN.
Brian Potter with Comcast SportsNet also tweeted this today: “#Caps-NYR Game 1 tonite on CSN at 7:30. SportsNet Central live at Verizon Center from 6-7, Capitals Central at 7 and full postgame coverage.”
Caps blogger Mike Vogel also posted some info on the Dump ‘n Chase blog, sharing a Comcast press release on the Caps First-Round TV Schedule. For those outside the CSNWashington area, this part specifically might be of interest: “*Please note that VERSUS’ coverage of Game 1 of the Capitals-Rangers playoff series on Wednesday, April 13 – which is subject to local black-out – will be Joined in Progress (JIP) following the completion of their featured game, Phoenix at Detroit, which begins at 7 p.m.”
