With competition looming from MASN, it looks like Comcast SportsNet is starting to show overflow games outside of the 50 mile radius of Washington. For several years, when there was a Caps game on at the same time as a Wizards game, the overflow game was typically shown on News Channel 8 or CN8 only within the 50 mile territory. Outside of the area, these games were only available via NHL Center Ice or NBA League Pass. Last night, the Caps game on CSN+ was blacked out for me where it never had been before. Later in the evening, I looked at the CSN website where it listed all of the channels where CSN+ games are shown, and it said that Richmond had it on channel 43. While the channel hasn't started yet, and no one at Comcast known when it starts (surprise!), it's nice to know that almost all Caps and Wizards games will be on basic cable thoughout the region. The bad part is that unless your particular system is carrying the CSN+ feed, the game gets blacked out on NHL Center Ice, and you may be in for a MASN type battle just like the last two years. We'll see what happens.
