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.
Except there is a TON of precedence on the pricing for RSNs. And the packaging of them. Including Comcast RSNs on DirecTV. Basically included in most packages for local RSN and in SportsPak for out of market with pro games in their respective packages.
