    Do they show Preseason games on league pass? If someone knows the answer could they PM me or just post. Thanks

    In most instances, yes, they do show them. The difference comes in whether you have it through DirecTV or through Digital Cable. A couple years ago I had to subscribe via Digital Cable and I had to call them repeatedly to complain because DirecTV was showing pre season games, but digital cable was not.

    After some amount of highlighting the fact that their competitor shows the pre season games, digital cable magically started showing pre season games. I don't know if that's still the case, but I went back to DirecTV and I still get most of the games, with the exception of a few that actually aren't televised. (i.e. the occasional game in Grand Rapids).

    According to NBA.com the Pistons 1st game on TV is vs Denver on the 17th and will be on FSN Detroit and NBA TV.

    However, Boston vs Minn this Wed is on ESPN2.

    I don't show any games being telecast tonight on NBA League pass... The Raptors are playing a Eurpean team on NBA TV @7 PM EDT

    Hopefully us international fans can hear it on the radio if someone can provide a valid working streaming link.

    Yeah, apparently we are getting the shaft this season. It looks like they are hooking us up with a skeleton schedule to start the preseason and then ramping up the amount games they show as the reg. season gets closer.

    Note to NBA:

    That doesn't make me hungrier for the product...it just pisses me off.

    Man, that was a bummer.

    Oh well. Good to see that the new guys were able to perform against pseudo NBA players.

    Its about $140 and they can break up the charges in 4 payments on your bill.

    What is better - DirecTV, DishNetwork, Comcast, other?

    My folks have DishNetwork and I was bugged by the fact that while I was over there in Macomb this past weekend the satellite went out a number of times and took several minutes to get back on, once it wouldn't come back on at all. My brother says that it happens from time to time. What are your good/bad experiences?

    My local cable kept going out for hours at a time back in 1997, so I jumped to DirecTV then and have not really had any issues with the satellite dish since..

    No issues from my end with Directtv.
    I am much happier with Directtv now that they are adding HD channels left and right every week lately.

    FSDetroit in HD is something I am looking forward to, seeing as how FS channels in SD were about the crappiest feeds I have seen.

    We have DirecTV at our house in TN and have never had problems like you describe. Just the occasional outage during heavy rain.
