    Does anyone know what major RSN networks or Upcoming new RSN networks are still not on DirecTV. I'm not sure if there are so many you could not list them all, but I thought it would be good to have a list somewhere. I don't think we are missing a whole lot, so thought it would be good to ask.

    I want CSS, but I doubt we ever see it. It about 25 Gwinnet Braves games and 6 or 7 SEC football games. Several SEC basketball games too.

    Dish has CST don't they? Is it on a spot beam?

    That will most likely no longer be an issue beginning in 2012. The Padres' deal with Cox is over this year, and it appears their next deal will be with Fox.

    ...and you have no idea how long I've been waiting for that!

    (well, technically, since I got DirecTV in 2008. So yeah, that long.)

    NO.

    How can I get CSS?
    CSS is available through Comcast, Charter and other cable providers. We are not currently available through Dish Network or DirecTV. If you are interested in CSS on your cable or satellite provider, please contact them and request it.


    I would agree, this would be a great channel for us Southern Sports Fans.

    I wasn't saying Dish had CSS, but Cox Sports in New Orleans.

    If you look at CSS's website, DISH and DirecTV are joined by 95+ % of the cable companies in its target area other than its two co-owners, likewise pass on the channel. It just does not provide enough valuable programming to justify the cost.

    All of the CSN's are expected to be changed to NBC sports net by end of july (afterthe Tour de france) along with VS.


    This is part of the deal that comcast must share as a result of the FCC deal that was approved this past jan.

    the Padres wich are on SD4 which is owned by cox, this is the padres last year under the contract, they will be on a new network. As of now they haven't released who they will sign with.

    So for padres fans u only have 3 months or so left to deal with this crap.

    as far as the other networks I'm not sure on

    Does RDS count?
    I would pay $20 a month to get RDS on my Directv lineup.

    Why does DTV get some CSN's? As far as I can tell we get CSN (Mid Atlantic, Chicago and Bay Area). CSN Mid Atlantic shows a lot of what CSS shows but is blacked out.
