    If they remove the channel FSArizona next weekends ASU game is on Versus. After that there is a ESPN game on 11-25. You might be able to pickup a Comcast feed in-between from another region if you have the sports package.

    I’ll never understand why companies when going through these types of battles run ad campaigns to point the finger at the other side.

    I’m sure it’s effective because they wouldn’t do them, but it really pisses me off because there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it. Unfortunately, cancelling DirecTV is not an option for me.

    Where are you fact checking? Unless it's with those in the negotiations, then you're just getting propaganda and spin from both sides.

    Where did you find the facts about the truth or falsehood of each sides argument? If you have sources about the details of these contracts, please share them with the rest of us?

    The main thing I'm saying is we the customer should not hear about this ! It's the cost of doing business . Fox is not charging anymore than any other provider . Directv has over charged all of us for years without this latest crap they are pulling . But we the 50 million customers always get screwed ! If any little thing goes up on any product we the customer always get screwed not the big companies .

    If you dislike Directv so much, then switch to Dish or cable. Pretty simple solution. As the customer, you can switch.

    For the rest of us, we understand this is typical marketing games, just like every other provider has been through. There is a lot of $$ in play, so they are all playing dirty.

    You can find out as much as any of us screwed over consumers in the U.S.A. on the internet . I'm not in bed with the big companies like some of you are . I'm just another middle class sucker having to pay out my ass for every little thing !!

    Remember both parties need each other as well. A deal will get done eventually because DirecTV doesn't want customers to flock to cable or DISH, and News Corp. needs that hefty monthly revenue from DirecTV.

    Then stop reading about it.
    Proof?
    I'm not sure you're aware, but that's how businesses make money. If we weren't charged more than what a company needs, then they'd never make money.
    Big companies fail, too.

    Yes, I can find out as much as any customer. However, I don't believe that the details of a confidential contract between two companies can be found on the Internet. (If you have found this information for Fox and DIRECTV, please provide a link for all of us to be better informed.)

    You have made the claim that you have fact checked and can tell what is truth and what is propaganda in this dispute. (Have I misunderstood your posts?) If that is true, it would be helpful for all of us to have access to your facts and sources.

    No, they don't. Other companies have the MLB package. Also, that's not what a monopoly is. An exclusive deal isn't a monopoly.

    Of course it is. It doesn't have to be illegal for it to be a monopoly.

    I thought about it, you're right. My problem was I considered a monopoly as an automatic illegal thing.

    The NFL SUNDAY TICKET IS THE MONOPOLY ! That is why I said basically the MLB also I know I can get the MLB online or on apple tv . It's just easier to have it all from one fair source without having to separate everything .
