But why would they ever be blacked out in Harrisburg?

Isn't Harrisburg outside the Philly market zone?

Harrisburg is Philly, DC, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh territory. Phillies are usually always blacked out.

More than likely it will simply not come on and the guide is wrong. It has been for every CSN Philly game.

got both feeds last night, and was shocked to get CSN Philly in HD with Philly commercials. Not sure what DTV did,but it was awesome The game not so much from a flyers fan standpoint, but Miller was amazing.

Indeed, that was a nice treat. Since upgrading to HD, I remember only two Flyers HD telecasts on Center Ice before. One was a back haul feed without commercials (and with a number of technical issues), and the other was an "NHL Extra" feed from CSN California. This is the first time ever that I've seen the actual Flyers telecast, as seen in Philadelphia, in HD.

I am not a Flyers fan by any means, but I do enjoy their telecasts, on the rare occasions I can get them (usually in SD only).

Interesting thing happened last night. I receive CSN Washington as well as FSN Pitt, yet both the games on VS last night were not blacked out. Hope for us afterall?

I live west of Harrisburg in Perry County. I got the MLB package for the first time this year. I typically have gotten baseball without blackout for Washington and Pittsburgh games before I got the package. I was led to believe I would be able to view Phillies games on MLB without blackout except for Washington and Pittsburgh and in those cases I could just watch them on my regional telecast.
So far this season I have been blacked out on all Phillies games on MLB. Is this what I haver to look forward to the rest of the year? If so I will be cancelling MLB at end of season. Anybody have any insight on this?

Well, to know for certain that you are in Phillies territory, use the zip code locator at MLB.tv (it is towards the bottom of the page). But from what I've understood, if you ordered MLB Extra Innings and you still can't watch Phillies games on a more frequent basis, there is almost a definite chance that you are in Phillies territory. And unfortunately, as of right now the only way to see them is if they're nationally televised unless you have Comcast Cable in the Phillies territory. Or if you move somewhere else.

A lot of us who posted on this thread wanted to see this resolved for the last 15 years. I used to live in South Jersey for a few years before I moved out west and honestly I tried to get Comcast cable, but when the CSR's at C* told me that "Comcast does not currently serve my area" on two occasions, I decided to say "Screw it, I'd try DirecTV" and I was with D* ever since.

I know it has been said before on this thread, but I would like to ask "Why should those of us who are not able to get Comcast get the stiff arm when we want to watch the Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers. As well as all the Philly sports shows?" That is why I want CSN-Philly on D*, and it should have been done years ago. Now that I live outside Philly, I'd like to ask "How come Comcast won't put CSN-Philly at least on the D* Sports Pack so they would potentially attract more out-of-area viewers?" Just look what it did for the YES Network. One would think that it would be to C*'s advantage to obtain as many viewers as possible, apparently C* only looks for more cable subscribers, and their cable growth is stagnant at best.

espnjason - Comcast is a company full of luddites. Their behavior does not surprise me in the least.

Folks this will be the longest running thread in DBSTalk history. CSN Philly is never going to be on D* or any other satellite company in the Philly market. I am in the Philly market and being a D* customer for 13 years. I came to the reality many years ago that Comcast's deep pockets and political friends will assure to protect this market for Comcast. Rules have come and gone regarding this and the Philly market is always exempt.

Actually, Comcast, like all bloated/expensive cable companies have been hemorrhaging customers for years now. And guess where those customers are going? Either to legal/illegal PC downloads, or to satellite tv.

It's in their monopolistic self-interest to keep CSN Philly to themselves, as a cable company.

But Comcast is no longer just the country's biggest cable company. They are now a media distribution giant. Their ownership in NBC television and Universal Pictures movies dwarfs the importance of their cable empire. And, yet, it's still the SOS when it comes CSN Philly. Hopefully, all of this overambition and shortsightedness on what should take priority will lead them to bankruptcy. It will take several years to occur, but I will enjoy it if it happens (even if it means hurting the competitiveness/spending on the Flyers and Sixers - and I love those teams, but this is just how much I'm rooting against Comcast). I guess grudges can be perverse.

Then again, it takes two to tango, and Directv is not totally without fault. Because of the legal changes the past couple of years, it seems likely that Comcast is currently offering CSN Philly to Directv at an inflated, but technically "fair", market price. I understand they have to look at their bottom line as well, but how about giving something back to their long-suffering Philly area customers, as a reward for sticking with them all these years?

Yeah right, I'm sure that'll happen (lol)...
