I don’t know if it is because I have been playing way too much Call of Duty: Black Ops or not – but I will chalk this up to the “intel” variety.

My source with Cablevision graciously provided me with an employee memo earlier today regarding the broadcast of MSG+2 in HD later this month. Several people have questioned me on the validity of this development citing a lack of a formal announcement to subscribers.

The memo outlines the launch of a new sports channel that will feature MSG and MSG+ overflow games named iO Sports HD.

Thanks to all the Rangers and Devils fans who have been visiting the blog and spreading the links around, this is a positive development for us all. It’s just a shame it’s taken Cablevision this long.
