Directv decided quite a ways back not to bother trying to get CSN Philly due to its cost. CSN Philly is listed as the third most expensive rsn. DTV just won't say it publicly. The situation with CSN Philly is no different than the one concerning SNLA. No matter who owns DTV isn't going to change anything. So may as well give up on either of these two rsn's ever being on Dtv. If they were ever going to have carried it, it would already have happened by now.
"zero incentive"??? Wouldn't adding more subs in the Philly area be "incentive" enough since, as I can speak for first hand experience, that MANY MANY people in that area decide to get Comcast ONLY because it offers this specific channel? When I lived there I would've dropped Comcrap in a South Philly minute if DirecTV began offering CSN Philly!!! I'm sure I'm not alone.
