    I'm moving to a new home soon in Stamford and i notice that the local Cable company (optimum online) gets both new york and connecticut local channels. I'm wondering if the CT channels play Patriots games and if it's in HD? Thanks!

    Yeah, WFSB channel 3 CBS carries all Patriots games. However, in Fairfield County, with optimum/io/cablevision, I usually don't get Pats games in HD as they only broadcast channel 2 (NY) in HD (although some Pats games do appear on that channel, when the Jets don't overlap).

    not only is channel 3 not HD - it frequently broadcasts the games with an annoying static. at least last year it did. enjoy

    I think they changed this from last year. At least, my CBS HD channel is the CT one.

    I live in Stamford, the Glenbrook Area. IO sucks because you cant watch NFL Network and you only get BSPN. Direct TV sucks because if you want to watch the Patriots game you have to buy the 300 dollar sunday ticket. Sometimes you get the Patriots game on direct tv without the sunday ticket, but it still sucks you have to pay all that money.

    If the games are on CBS or Fox then it will be on HD! The Channel for the Preseason games is channel 24 on IO!!

    Errrrr, aren't almost all patriots games on CBS (with maybe 1 game on fox and 1 game on nfl network?)... so if i get optimum online, i'll get most patriots games in HD?

    the only HD CBS channel is 702 (NY) - if you want the Pats it has to be low def channel 3
