    As I understand it - no way to get the game. The only way you might be able to get CBS thru D* is to live in one of the "designated DMA's" - there are seventeen I think thruout the country. Look on channel 82 - it will explain it better than I can.

    You may have to do what I'm doing - going to Radio Shack and picking up an OTA antenna for the game.

    I you live in a market where a CBS O & O (owned and operated) staion is the ONLY CBS station you can get, or if you live in a "white" area where you cannot get ANY CBS station, you are automatically eligible to receive the CBS HD feed from DirecTV. If not, you have to get waiver from your local CBS affiliate, many of which are being suprisingly cooperative.
