Here’s Your Comcast Sportsnet 2014-15 TV Schedule

The Capitals and Comcast Sportsnet have announced their TV schedule for the season. We’ve got the full list below, but here’s what you need to know now:

  • CSN and CSN+ will air 70 games, with NBCSN picking up the remainder.
  • I count 9 games on CSN+. If you don’t get CSN+, start dating someone who does.
  • Your boys Joe Beninati, Craig Laughlin, and Al Koken are all back.
  • Alan May is back as well, though it’d be better if he were between the benches for every home game.
  • Rob Carlin and Brent Johnson’s gigantic wristwatch will be doing post-game stuff as per usual.
  • The press release threatens, I mean promises, more programming from Brian Mitchell.
  • Five out of eight preseason games will be broadcast. I will recap zero of them!

Thoughts? Feelings? Plans to meet up at the house of someone with CSN+ in HD?

  • “If you don’t have CSN+ in HD, start dating someone who does.”
    Hi. My name is Ben. I don’t have CSN+ but I am willing to bring beer and cuddle if your into that during hockey game… I also like long walks looking for meteor fragments and photoshopping. #RMNBDatingService

  • FIVE televised preseason games? Oh god. GIF’ing starting early this year.

  • I upvoted myself because I heard that girls like confidence!

  • Brendan Hall

    Is CSN+ on DirecTV? I’m not even sure if I have it or not. I know I have the sports package through DirecTV.

  • Hey, guys! Let’s talk some hockey!

  • Yes. Usually it’s a split of the channel. So for me CSN is 642. CSN+ is usually 642-1.

  • Brendan Hall

    Sweet. I was in a panic for a few moments. LOL! Thanks…

  • Follow me on Twitter – if you ever have any problems, let me know, and I’ll tell you where the game is. Deal?

  • Do you get CSN+ in HD on DirectTV?

  • Brendan Hall

    Deal! I think I follow you already, but I’ll check.

  • I know BMitch is bad, but I feel there is not nearly enough outrage about Chuck Gormley. How is someone that awkward on live TV?

  • If I recall correctly, I got an HD and Lo-Def channel for CSN+ last year. The HD channel blinks on and off every 10 minutes to a black screen, the other looks like a 16-bit Nintendo game and is abnormally loud.

  • This is just my opinion, but I think he’s really improved over the last two years. Remember: he didn’t have much experience doing live TV shots and he basically learned that on the job. I’d be waaaaaaay more awful. I really think he’s done a commendable job and has really grown a lot in that role.

  • jp_daddi0

    Ponying up and getting Center Ice this year. Unfortunately, Comcast Sports in South Carolina only allows me to watch bad sasha on the reg.

  • VeggieTart

    Why couldn’t they have more of the away preseason games on TV? I will be AT all four of the home preseason games. Oh, well, better than nothing.

  • I can’t defend that.

  • erunaheru

    Ugh, CSN+ is always a dice roll for me on Comcast. It gets pawned off on TCN, which is HD, but at least one game a year it randomly shows the stream from some other channel instead, usually boxing. Sometimes the on screen guide even says it’s Hockey when it is clearly not hockey.

  • VirginiaPatriot

    Darn, you’re limiting it to females.

  • Sarah

    Are you saying you’re a guy with CSN+? Hey there, VirginiaPatriot!

  • VirginiaPatriot

    😉 Dang, if I were single, I might have had something going here! CSN+ AND the Center Ice package (FIOS programming package, get your minds outta the gutter!)

  • Sarah

    Rats. All the good ones who have CSN+ are taken.

  • JenniferH

    WHEEE!!! I AM SO EXCITED!! I saw that my milk expired on October 8th yesterday and said aloud: “That’s six days after the first episode of Vampire Diaries airs and one day before the 2nd one airs and one day before Hockey officially starts. OMG!” (Yeah, I’m a TVD fan too.) And then I squealed with joy.

  • Narcissism is one my many great traits

  • Sarah

    It’s a winner every time.

  • VirginiaPatriot

    They only want us for our hockey coverage. 🙁 Sigh.

  • Sarah

    On the plus side, this at least answers the age-old question of What Women Want.
    At least, RMNB women.

  • Shmoo

    Nah, let’s not. Kick returns or GTFO.
