A basketball game delayed due to weather? Yes, it happened, as Sunday’s rescheduled “Battle on the Midway” is due to take place aboard the deck of the USS Midway, paying homage to San Diego’s military culture. No. 20 San Diego state will play host to Jim Boeheim‘s 9th-ranked Syracuse squad, and what a way to open the college basketball season. The matchup pits a Syracuse team that has suffered a lot of turnover against SDSU, which is returning its top four scorers from last season. Dion Waiters, Scoop Jardine and Fab Melo are all off the the NBA, leaving Syracuse to find its feet. Nonetheless, it says much that Boeheim’s squad can lose so many players and still be considered a top-10 team — there’s still a lot of talent left there, and the Orange will be seeking another Big East title. You can check out all the action live on NESNplus (check the channel listings below). Pregame coverage will kick off at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, with the game itself slated for 4 p.m. Channel listings subject to change 2012 NESNplus CHANNEL LISTINGS NESNplus NESNplus HD CONNECTICUT AT&T Uverse 713 1713 Cablevision 99 Unavailable Charter 340 760 Cox** Unavailable 1300 Metrocast 51 430 Thames Valley Communications 90.6 HD and no converter 97 with HD converter Xfinity 84 1650 MAINE Bee Line Cable – Millinocket 19 TBD Bee Line Cable – Madison & Wilton 20 TBD MetroCast 77 Unavailable TWC** Unavailable 700 Xfinity 84 894 MASSACHUSETTS BELD 24 763 Charter 340 760 Cox** Unavailable 1300 Norwood 27 627 RCN 8 600 SELCO 63 363 TWC** Unavailable 700 Verizon FiOS 78 Unavailable XFinity 84 894 NEW HAMPSHIRE Charter 340 760 MetroCast 77 Unavailable MCT Cable 13 Unavailable TWC** Unavailable 700 Xfinity 84 894 RHODE ISLAND Cox** Unavailable 1300 Full Channel 80 80 Verizon FiOS 78 Unavailable VERMONT Burlington Telecom 38 Unavailable Charter 340 760 Southern VT 512 109-7 Stowe 117 597 Trans-Video 25 Unavailable Waitsfield 11 211 Xfinity 84 894 SATELLITE DIRECTV 629 629-1 Dish Network 443 443 & 9581 Technical limitations prevent some service providers from being able to carry NESNplus and/or NESNplus HD *NESNplus HD may not be available in all areas **Available in HD only NESNplus requires a digital device to view If you watch NESN on Comcast but can’t see NESNplus channel 84, it may be because you need a digital set-top box or digital adapter on your television or CableCARD-equipped device.  A digital set-top box is available for as low as $1.95 per month and a digital adapter is available for $1.99 per month.  Visit your local Comcast service center to pick one up (click here to find the closest location) .  For answers to additional questions, please call 1-800-COMCAST or chat live online here with a representative.
