    $70+ a month? Come on! That has to be a joke! Is this the NFLST + SF+HD Access in one? No, this the MTN for crying out loud!

    I'm sure there has been no date set for when/if MTN will be on D. Keep calling and e-mailing--remember D the Leader in Sports :)

    The Mtn. is such a joke! There was a big push here in Utah last week for fans to call DirecTV and Dish Network and complain and ask for them to pick it up. It seems to have mostly resulted in a lot of confused CSR's giving out incorrect info and little more. With the amount that Comcast is asking for the distribution rights, they'll never pick it up (or they will, but charge you $50 to subscribe to it).

    So complaining to D* or E* does no good. And complaining to Comcast does no good - they'll just remind you that you can subscribe to them. So, start calling and writing your university presidents and athletic directors - they're the ones that really carry the weight in the conference. Maybe they can get Craig Thompson (the MWC commissioner) fired over this stupid deal and push the conference itself to demand that Comcast fix things.

    Considering the bitch that Comcast is putting up over the Big Ten Network, this is kind of comical to say the least. The level of hypocrisy you get when a cable company owns a TV network is incredible.

    This thread is kind of funny to me. Here as D* subs we are calmly discussing getting the Mtn. But put this thread on the E* side and there would be all kind of bitching and whining. :D

    THAT attitude is the main reason why many of us will NEVER sub to E*.

    He keeps the expensive stuff off his sateliltes due to the fact it would cut into that LARGE legal fund it keeps due to constantly suing program providers. :lol:

    Dolly, the history of getting channels from Comcast for D* is spotty. Ask the fans in Philadelphia.
