    Tomorrow's Phils broadcast is on My17. Its interesting that we were able to get so many My17 broadcasts last year and this year it looks preliminarily like we won't.

    every game on sunday will be on phl 17 and some during the week, phl 17 will show about 40+ games this year.

    comcast philly only has about 20% of the phillies. but they own 100% of flyers sixers

    No, it means the NHL wants you to be able to see the games without having to listed to Pens announcers.

    In the end, you can see every flyers game on CI in HD with the devils feed, Chico may be annoying, but with Doc with him, he never sinks to the level of the pens announcers.

    SECTV's Lehigh Valley lineup has TCN at channel 101. Extended basic only goes to 99 so you need the digital package to get it. However if you have a TV with a QAM tuner and you get SECTV with extended basic you can get TCN off the cable on channel 76-2 and get CSN hi-def on 110-3.

    19530 comcast does have service out their

    i went to www.comcast.com under programming i selected channel lineup and it ask for an address i used 300 west main st 19530 and comcst does have a chanel lineup for that area.

    CSN is on channel 50 SD
    CSN HD is 847
    TCN is 856 in HD

    weird though TCN SD is not on the lineup so looks like u must have HD to get TCN

    your in the middle of philadelphia and harrisburgh new stations

    funny thing when I put your info on directv local sports line they will give you nationals and orioles MASN

    I checked on mlb.com and you are only to be blacked out of phillies games.

    so in my opnion you are forced to have comcast till D gets csn Philly

    i was under the same impression that i could get comcast but when you call them up to get service they tell me they wont provide service to my location. i guess service electric covers this area? i checked the guide for tomorrow even on comcast im not sure how to get the game, this is round 1 of playoffs and they have phillies listed on tcn and sixers on csn http://www.fancast.com/tv-listings :mad::nono::nono2:

    It might be about CSN - Philly or just the other CSN's

    will I have had comcast for since 1994, and every september is when stuff changes.

    When comcast gets new channels it always comes late sept / early oct.

    Verizon fios now has TCN which since its start had nothing then a few years ago they got CSN and now they have TCN.

    A Deal with verizon and the city of philaelphia have a contract which will allow verizon fios to offer FIOS in philadelphia county.

    this month marked the final county left chester and they now have verizon fios. philadelphia county is next comcast has begun to loose customers.

    we all know the FCC ruling and we all know that comcat wont appeal.

    judging the way comcast operates changes with them always happen in september.

    the other thing is COMCAST SPECTACORE ones who run comcast sports net, ED snyder OWNER.

    september the WACHIOVA CENTER WILL HAVE ITS 4TH NAME CHANGE.

    WELLS FARGO CENTER the spectrum is expected to be imploaded to make way for PHILLY LIVE.

    their building a hotel, retaurant and bar and a mini mall that will extend a catwalk mall like to the wachoiva center.

    ALL THE CHANGES INVOLVING TV PROGRAMMING WITH COMCAST always happens for some reason in september, my guess they want to do it before the NHL and NBA season.

    after having looked at the fcc ruling and the march appeal date they have to offer the station. their is no way they can't. With them not appealing it will happen.

    alls i'm saying is september will be the month

    Couple comments on what you're saying. First, with reference to Chester county, are you saying that Chester was the last county left without FiOS, next to Philadelphia County, in SE PA? If so... that's not correct. Parts of Chester County are just starting to get FiOS - if you head pretty far out west, but Chester was probably the first county in the area to get wired up for FiOS - we got FiOS internet over 4 years ago (it became available here in January 2006), and TV became availble here about 11 months later.

    Next, CableVision has decided to skip the appeal to the FCC, and went straight to the courts. The trial/decision is pending. We'll have to see how long it takes to wind its way through the courts.

    Next, even if the courts uphold the FCC's action, all the action does is provide a framework for action. Meaning DirecTV would have to take Comcast to the FCC, and make the case for getting access to CSN Philly. When it gets to that point I don't have any doubt that DirecTV will win, and Comcast will have to fork it over. But then comes the carriage agreement. Comcast and DirecTV would have to come to terms to get the channel.
