Not sure that is true.

I think earlier is likely.
Working on it.
It would seem weird to have absolutely zero coverage of the Hornets on their flagship prior to the day the season tips, wouldn't it? First shot at doing anything is an NBA broadcast? Seems risky.
Comcast SportsNet Houston is being launched on October 1st. New home of the Astros and Rockets.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
I guess they might launch the network with some preview shows or something along that line before then, but their 'grand opening' should be on opening night.
I'd be surprised if they didn't start with preseason coverage and the usual magazine weekly shows.
Looking on hornets.com, it doesn't show that most of our preseason games will be on TV. I'm hoping that's just because they're working on something with FSNO. That would suck, though, if they're not on tv anywhere as most of our preseason games are on the road.
The only thing I found about when the new network will begin is this...
FOX SPORTS NEW ORLEANS TO BROADCAST 75 REGULAR SEASON GAMES IN 2012-13
FRANCHISE-HIGH NUMBER OF LOCAL TV APPEARANCES BEGINS ON OPENING NIGHT VS. SPURShttp://www.nba.com/hornets/news/fox-...-games-2012-13The schedule, which includes 38 home and 37 road games, begins with the Wednesday, October 31st home opener against Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs and concludes with the final game of the regular season in Dallas on Wednesday, April 17th against Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks.
Preseason games are mostly not televised. Some are.
I'm speaking generally.
According to Hornets.com, the first preseason game on Oct. 7 will be on NBA TV and the game against the Heat on Oct. 26 will be on ESPN.
On Saturday I was looking for the Tulane game and I saw that DirecTV channel 668 was listed as Fox New Orleans. I couldn't access it but it was listed in the guide.

Will FS New Orleans be carried by cable companies on the Mississippi Coast? Will this affect the Fox Sports South channel that currently airs here if so?
I don't know if FS NO will be carried in MS, but the Hornets games should be televised on the Fox Sports South since those areas are in the Hornets market.
It will say on the TV guide that the Hawks would be on this channel 4 years ago but there would always be alternative coverage for whatever reason. I've just moved back to Ocean Springs now after being in Alabama for 4 years so I am looking forward to finally getting to actually watch my team more than once or twice a year depending on how many games I would be able to go to. This was a much needed change to bring more people in locally.
