Looks like will happen for you this spring as Comcast just got blown out by
the Appeals Court today and Directv and the others will now be able to
have access to the sports channels now...was just now on the internet news
for BC Channel


Hopefully this is true.

Only applies to satellite provided programming at this point, until the terrestial ruling by the FCC is upheld in the courts, if it goes that route. Definitely good news though :)

Before those of us in Philadelphia get too excited about this, don't forget that DirecTV would still have to PAY for this and come to a contract agreement with Comcast.

Given how "well" the negotiations between Comcast and DirecTV have gone over Versus, I'm not holding my breath that this will happen any time soon....

different leverage in this "dispute" remember in the CSN-Philly negotiations D* wants it to get more Philly customers with VS. Comcast want D* to carry to get more Viewers, Sub revenue, and Ad revenue

you'd think the price would be similar to what VZ (FIOS) is paying, no?

you would have to think it would be, but based on the current VS negotiations, i'm sure Comcast will put an exorbitant pricetag to stall as long as they can

there are two pieces to the price D* will pay --- the in-market price (Easily tabed to Fios price one would think) and the out of market price for Sports Pack subs (should be tabed to the price difference on CSN -Chicago for D* in and out of market adjusted for the difference in price in market for D* between CSN-Chicago and Philly (Well that would be a rational place to start at leastand I don't think Comcast and D* are in the habit of negotiating rationally right now ....)

Remember that just says they have to offer them at "Comparable rates". IT doesn't really say comparable to whom, and it doesn't say that they can't restrict what requirements they can put on the channels, etc. It also doesn't say that they others have to accept the offer.

I could very easily see this turning into another VS fiasco with Comcast telling D* they can't put it in the sports pack, and trying to charge more than D* thinks it is worth.

For the people in the affected areas and the affected fans I wish you the best of luck though.

comcast only has 20% of CSN Chicago and they do not own the teams.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

PS - CSN Philly really is a darn good station. I'm a Buffalo native, but I'm a die-hard Phillies fan, and it's been tough not having them on TV 162 times per year.
