Wonderful.. some more RSNs that may not make it to D* in HD. That is how Comcast and the other cable companies stick it to us satellite customers.
Yes, it's absolutely awful that DBS's arch rival, Comcast Cable, would "stick it"
to their competition. Just awful.
It's called business.
So do you guys really think we'll lose these 2 channels then? We do have CSN-Chicago and CSN-West, so I don't see why we would lose these 2.
Edit: Oh wait, you're talking about the HD feeds of those channels. Thats a good question.
This is exactly why cable companys should not be allowed to own networks.
Its OK, if Comcast has a cable franchise in your town, but if Comcast does not
have the franchise, your local cable company may not enter into a franchise
agreement with Comcast because Comcast will insist that the channel be
placed in a tier that includes 90 percent of subscribers (generally called
expanded basic). If Comcast does not allow the channel on satellite, you do not get to see your local professional sports team in SD or HD. We have this
situation here in NJ. This may be business from Comcast's perspective, but
it is a regulatory loophole that hurts consumers, was created by our
Federal Government, and augmented by state and local cable franchise laws.
There are several Comcast Sports Networks available in HD on DirecTV now... I know for certain Chicago is..
The bigger concern, is that Comcast if they take over the "production" of that RSN.. .will go the same direction as the Chicago one did.
Down the tubes... to the point, that you just watch it for the Games... and forget that there is anything else on the channel.
Yeah? So? :lol:
What else do we watch RSNs for other than the games? :lol:
There was a time, that the Chicago RSN did have some good Studio work and "other" programs.
Earl, I hate it when the Yankees-Sox EI games are the Sox feed.. that Hawk guy is very annoying, but his tag lines are almost comical.
You mean "PUT IT ON THE BOARD" and "HE GONE" Music to my ears!
No..not exactly.. you mean.. "You can put it on the boooooaaaarrrrrrdddddd, YES!".
