yeah after a little more research i saw that too & its supposed to be 745 , but on the guide the channel doesn't exist it goes from 744 to 746 (& i have the sports package so it isn't for lack of a subscription)

i'm hoping that channel just pops up during game time or somethin .. how are you gonna watch ? are you planning to or just haven't thought about it really

I remember the games used to come on channel 6 a few years ago (the local bulletin board channel) until CST was actually given a channel.

Don't know why Comcast dropped it.


Anyway, give that a try on Friday night.

I don't know about Comcast but direct tv won't have the CST games. Even when they are live on NFLN it gets blacked out if they're local on CST...even without the ability to get CST. Been going to my parents house for those games but this year they have DTV so I'm either going to find someone with cable or a bar with it...then I can watch the replay in peace later.

The SHV Fox will probably broadcast the Cowgirls if both are being played at the same time.

For what it is worth, I called to check with Buffalo Wild Wings in Shreveport and they said they will NOT have the game on since they are with DirecTV and do not get Cox Sports. She did check with the Bossier location down at the Boardwalk and they said they WILL have the Saints game on Cox Sports.

I am thinking the solution is to find a buddy in Shreveport that has Comcast and watch it on Channel 653 which is carrying the games or find a buddy in Bossier that gets Cox Sports and watch it there. Alternatively, go to Buffalo Wild Wings in Bossier or perhaps the new Daq's sports bar on the corner of Old Minden and Benton Road. It doesn't have the TVs of BWW, but it is a Saints themed sports bar and probably more fun to hang out in.

(AND A CALL TO 2 COMCAST CUST. SERVICE PEOPLE SHOWED THEY DON"T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THERE DOING and cannot even find CST as a channel)

then i wen't on Xfinity with my comp. , searched TV listings through my zip & checked every channel , not there , but then i searched saints in the tv listing AND IT SHOWS UP AS 653 but not on regular listings & not highlighted like other programs

so best bet is checking 745 or 653 @ 8:00 w/ FOx 6 being the least likely option

The Comcast schedule for Shreveport shows the game on 653 at 7:00, preceded by a recap of the 2012 season at 6:00 and a pregame show at 6:30. This is not a HD channel. Last year in was shown in HD on 745 but was not publicized in advance. No one at the local office knows anything, which is the norm.

Where do you get your local channels from? Lafayette? The only way would be if one of the local channels is carrying the game. When I had direct tv I would still see the preseason games because a local channel in New Orleans always carried the game.

If not there is always illegal streaming.

As a long suffering Shreveport Saints fan, the only sure option is to set the DVR for the NFLN replay on Saturday at noon. I tried the streaming option last year with limited success. Justin.tv worked pretty well but had its issues.
