CSN brings back Prism's The Great Sports Debate. From chickie's n petes restuarant ( which is like half mile form stadium area)

Yes they brought back the orignal announcers - angelo cadtaldi, al morganti, stan hockman, glen macknow.

Not sure what the schedule is, the show on TCN last night they even showed classic clips from the early 90's when it was on PRISM.

Today,s Inquirer sports poll list are you looking forward to watching the Phillies & Yankees first grapefruit league game Friday.If you go to philly.com web site and go to the sports page click on sports poll about half way down on the page.There is 3 choices to answer the one I clicked on to and everyone else here should was,I wish but I don't get Comcast Sports Net.When I went on to vote minutes ago it showed several have already choice this option as answer.This couldn't hurt and possibly gather enough voted to show our sports teams the amount of viewers they don't reach here.Hopefully the Phillies take notice and use this as leverage to pressure Comcast on their next TV dael which is in the near future.Thanks to everyone that votes .

Um, last I heard Comcast had re used their tv contract for the sports exams in the area for 20 years a couple years ago. Was that only the basketball and hockey teams? I thought it was the baseball team as well.

Ok, just he sixes area screwed then. And as i recall Comcast doesn't own any part of any of the teams anymore, so that's also good news.

they don't own the sixers, but they get a good chunk of the money from the TV and are also charging JOSH HARRIs RENT.

so comcast still makes money. Its funny, its like they get paid alot of the glory but have no expenses to the sixers.

Yesterday,s poll in the Inquirer posted today showed almost 200 votes from fans that don,t get Comcast Sports Net.This might not seem a lot but, percentage wise it was 32% of the voting.Which is not bad and would be something to take into consideration by the Phillies especially since they have the biggest say with new broadcast contract in the near future.Good job by everyone that took the time to vote.

I think the phillies want to get more exposure and more of philadelphia watching its fans, only way to do that, is to have a network that's on all carriers.

I wonder if the phillies, when 2014 gets here will they decide to renew with CSN, or create their own channel, phillies network or maybe talk with FOX maybe create an
FS PHILADELPHIA.

I have no interest in the phillies, but I voted with you guys too. It's B.S. that Comcast could hold fans hostage like that, especially in their home market. It's pathetic that the FCC lets them get away with it too.

The Phillies aren't interested in exposure. They want Dodgers and Rangers-type cash.

Maybe the Phils could purchase outright from CSN and then offer minority shares to the Flyers, Sixers, and Union. It would save everyone, even C*, a lot of cash.

Why would Comcast sell CSN? Why would Comcast need to sell a cash cow? I don't know why some things are posted sometimes.

Well after waiting too long for Philly sports to get on DTV I think I am going to jump ship. I plan on getting the Get TiVo Elite (so I don't have to use terrible Com... DVR) and go all in. Have been with D since 2000. But it looks like I can save $100 a month and get philly sports.

Depressed a bit was hoping to stay with DTV but pricing seems so attractive now, stopped Sunday Ticket two years ago and don't miss it. I have recently gotten the Comcast Internet and the speeds are great and so far customer service has been good (knock wood). I guess i am done holding my breath for DTV to get comcast sporstnet philly.

Any cons why I shouldn't jump ship at this point?
