    Program guide says that 729 and 729-1 should be the Padres feed for the game against the Cardinals, but it's not showing up...what gives?

    I'm not seeing any of the games in my guide, and I'm an EI subscriber.

    Scared me there for a second. Didn't want to get home and be greeted by a black screen. In the past, the 4SD HD feed usually comes on almost right at first pitch.

    But for those of us in San Diego it's still a no-go.

    This has been rumored since at least last year. That would be good news for Padres fans in and out of San Diego.

    Love the way the Cox guy for the CHANNEL was basically threatening that a Fox channel may not be carried on Cox. Yeah, that would be a smart move. Ha!

    Of course, Cox could agree to give the channel to other providers and still win, but they, like Comcast, are too short sighted to see how that would work for them. I hope they lose the contract just for this.

    Cox should have been listening to the fans long ago. They should have been fair with their distribution to begin with. Funny how the tables will turn and Cox will be negotiating to get the Pads on their system. I wonder if they really are short-sighted enough to think they have any leverage at all.

    They are at least posturing that way from the quote in the article.

    Same thing as Coincast when Brian Roberts whines about Sunday Ticket and how they would give up CSN Philly and CSN Northwest if D* would give up the exclusivity on Sunday Ticket, while completely ignoring the fact that the NFL is the one that makes the package exclusive, and Coincast is too cheap to pay the NFL's high price.

    If that was true, wouldn't Dish have CSN Philly and Northwest?

    Don't try to point out comcast's illogic. It is wrong on so many levels.

    It looks more and more like the tables will definitely turn! Here is an update on the possible new Padres TV deal: http://www.nctimes.com/sports/baseb...cle_3475b39f-d71f-5159-b746-2e9a07f83b50.html
