I can't believe that making CSN-Philly available wasn't part of the conditions of the NBCU merger. Actually maybe I can given how corporate greed runs the country now.

I, would think that money will eventually move this to a resolution.Like mentioned before Directv is missing out on 10,s of thousands in additional customers in the Phila. area if they secured CSN Phila. not to mention retaining most of what they have here now. No matter how many customers they have nationally it seems like a big slice of pie not to want as well.

Only tens of thousands? They have 19 million subs now.

Metro Philly is over 6 millions residents which probably means about 2 million households. If they get 10% additional penetration, that is 200,000 customers.

CSN Philly's main market area is the Philly, Harrisburg and Scranton/WB DMAs. I know there are some other counties but this is the main part.

These 3 DMAs have approx 4.3 million TV households.

When RCN attempted to move into Philadelphia the Comcast controlled City Council voted it down.No need to give Comcast any competition. Comcast is the shining star in the city's corporate stable. Better to not make them angry by allowing competition.

All eyes that C* (or V*) would lose. No wonder Comcast continues to withhold this channel from DIRECTV and Echostar!

brian roberts decided to say something about VS this past week.

On June 22, 2011, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts indicated that a new name for Versus – likely including “NBC Sports” in some form – would be coming soon


My guess this change comes after the tour de france, thats when the 90 day timeline will have come and gone, the one ebersol said during his nhl tv contract press conference

hopefully that will also include the regional sports networks including this one.

I'm pretty sure I read a couple of days ago that the CSN's will stay CSN's. Could be wrong though. Would try to find a link to the article but I'm on my phone.

looks like comcast did file an appeal some time last year, when the FCC ruled in jan 2010.

I was on wikipedia and typed in csn philadelphia in the search.

all has been the same but wikipeida did ad this line to avaliabliity


The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the original FCC's ruling on June 10, 2011. [7]

so now we know why its been over a year or dealyed comcast filed an appeal, and if i recall didn't they say they wouldn't have done that. lol

I guessed they just delayed so they could get an extra year with CSN philly.

but now the appeal is complete and comcast lost. so now they have no choice.

if im directv or dish, if they dont release the signal or offer a fair contract by the end of july.

I would file a complaint with FCC if im dish or direc

All the FCC would do is force binding arbitration. That isn't a situation DirecTV or Dish wants.

Probly $5 bucks a subscriber or some ridiculous price that Coincast knows D* will never pay, so nothing will change at all. It's the same situation as CSNNW and it will never change.
