    not the point ... just trying to judge what the out of market per sub is based on the in market ... so if 15 cents in and 2 out in chicago and they get 30 cents in for philly 4 out would be a reasonable amount

    Hoping that Directv gets CSN Phila. soon which, would be great since being without my home town teams games .Living in the Delaware valley where Comcast shuts you out form even seeing any games even if I, subscribed to league pass etc.I, been in the past mentioned would not go back to Comcast after dropping them over 3yrs ago.That being said I, though being in the area that CSN Phila would be my regional sports channel if and when Directv gets this channel I,can again see the games plus have the better service &equipment that I enjoy since leaving Comcast.

    Living within the CSN Philly market, I too would obtain access as it would become one of my RSNs. I still don't see it happening anytime soon. Comcrap will fight this thing to the death before they provide D* with the CSN Philly signal. Don't hold your breath, anyone.

    No it will be just like any other RSN. Those in the Philly DMA will get it in basic and those out of market will have to sub to the Sports Pack to get all the non Phillies, Flyers, Sixers games.

    beachmonkey - That wasn't the terrestrial loophole case. Besides, who's going to take the case, the Supreme Court (I don't think so!)

    Hopefully, that's after Comcrap has already provided CSN Philly HD to D*.

    Thats why i think negotiations will go better than you think! comcast wants to buy NBC so they know they have to change their ways.

    Remember if you do switch to verizon fios, they do not have TCN the comcast network.

    TCN has shown 10 flyers, sixers, and have alot of phillies games scheduled for spring and first month of april.

    TCN is 100% own by comcrap. IT is our version of CSN 2.

    I remember the Old prism premium channel which was our sports network before it was changed to CSN in 1997 the flagship of all CSN's.

    prism became starz for movies and csn was our new sports network.

    after talking to comcast i would say fall 2010 you will see CSN on D as far as price or what package or what csn will charge wont know till then.

    I would agree we won't see CSN Philly on D* anytime earlier than this fall. Comcrap will go crying and screaming before they will let D* have CSN Philly HD.

    How did they pull that one off. In Chicago they did have CSN+ SD on CLTV (long time comcast only) But all CSN + and CSN + HD stuff was and is on all other cable and sat systems. WOW cable does not have CSN + HD.

    JoeTheDragon,
    Comcast essentially runs metro Philly. Not a bad thing - they're a major employer and provide the area a lot of benefits.

    With that type of clout, they can, and do, just about anything they'd like.

    This is interesting...

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/ent...ly-strike-deal-for-sports-channel-versus.html

    "The two sides had been deadlocked until recently when Mike White, the new DirecTV chief executive, got involved in the process. The companies also resolved carriage disputes over a couple of regional sports networks owned by Comcast in Northern California and New England."

    No specifics on which channels though.

    Given Philly's location geographically, I'd say it has nothing at all to do with CSN Philly.

    They might just not have great geographic knowledge.

    LA Times Fact Checker: "If it was important in the American Revolution and it wasn't part of the Confederacy, it must be in New England, right? Go with it!;)"

    Well, the FCC tried to close the loophole, the problem is they really don't have that power (they can't make up their own laws, they are only supposed to enforce existing laws). If the FCC tries to force them Comcast/Cablevision will take it to court and it will get thrown out. What needs to happen is there needs to be a new law passed that gets rid of the loophole.

    Once Comcast finally loses the court battle, they'll switch all of the Sports Prgramming (Flyers, Sixers, and Phillies) from CSN Philly over to TCN. Just conjecture on my part.

    Except there is a TON of precedence on the pricing for RSNs. And the packaging of them. Including Comcast RSNs on DirecTV. Basically included in most packages for local RSN and in SportsPak for out of market with pro games in their respective packages.
