It's actually a terrible article and filled with so many holes.....don't get me started. That author once made a claim in a 2003 article that the vast majority of his friends (over 72%) couldn't get DIRECTV due to line of site issues. I began to wonder where all of his buddies lived....the forest? He has also claimed time and again that DIRECTV has a monopoly on this without properly stating this package was open to other MSO's who C H O S E not to bid on it.


And yes, DISH has Cox Sports, but they don't have YES Network...another RSN.

Of course the other irony here is that Cox, which owns the rights to the Padres in San Diego, doesn't allow DISH or DIRECTV to carry those games.



Thanks Satracer. This sounds much like the CSS situation (jointly owned by Comcast and Charter) where they will not allow Dish or D* to carry them. I really, really miss not having that channel in SEC country where ESPN has farmed out some (at least a very small part) of their fat contract to CSS, and the SEC office allows CSS to broadcast part of the SEC baseball tournament.

Canned response #142.


I think they borrowed that canned response from Dishnetwork, whom use it for YES and the MSG's HDs.
Just give me the Sabres and Yankees in HD.

Are you telling me that I shouldn't hold my breath waiting for the President of DirecTv to call me concerning the issue?

I got the information from email exchanges with CST back when the deal fell through in October 2008.

I live in Metairie. I still have DirecTV but I'm reaching the end of my tolerance for not adding the channel. I've got two boys that are sports fanatics and we enjoy watching the Hornets. We can usually get the games over the internet but would rather watch them on TV. ATT's Uverse just rolled out in the area. I'm waiting to see if they will carry CST. If they do, it may be cheaper to switch everything over to them! If not, I will probably switch to Dish before next football/basketball season. I can save $10 a month with Dish and get the channel we miss.

The day cox is on d is the day csn philly is on d both channels have been protected by the loophole which was closed by the fcc. We will see what negotiations happen.

The nfl sunday ticket n direct tv are 2 different companies, both agreed to join to offer exclusive rights on d. Once the contract is up as it was a few years ago cable companies can get the ticket, it all depends how much the nfl will charge them.

Hey geaux, maybe one of your local affiliates will pick it up. I know in the past when LSU has played at Ole Miss one of the Jackson, MS locals picked up the Cox broadcast here. BTW, good luck to your Tigers.....man, are they playing well now when it counts. I was in Hoover Saturday, and it was not pretty through my red and blue glasses.

Good luck to the Rebels as well. The SEC is the best conference for football and baseball. Now lets go out and show the nation. I should be able to watch the game using a Slingbox that I have access to. However, DirecTv should cut a deal with Cox so I can watch it on my 61 inch HDTV. I wish I could have been in Hoover but I was in Omaha last year.

Watched the Tiger / Anteater game on Cox Sports on my computer using a Slingbox that was hooked up to a Cable Box in Baton Rouge. I had to watch it on a 17 inch computer screen versus my HDTVs 61 inch screen because DirecTv does not offer this channel. Great game as the Anteaters gave LSU everything they could handle.

I found out why this game was carried on Cox Sports rather than ESPN. UCLA / Jackie Robinson Park sucks and ESPN would not broadcast the game because of inadequate lighting at the ball park. UCLA needs to get their act together. You name a park after baseball great Jackie Robinson and its a dump. Additionally, the park only seats 1,200 people. Surely, Los Angeles has a better park than this.

Enough of a rant. DirecTv give us Cox Sports.

Cox Sports may have hope.... last I heard from Cox NOLA, DirecTV had pretty much agreed on terms of carrige last year but was trying to leverage the situation by not adding NOLA unless they could get SD to provide access to the Padres. With this out of the way, hopefully Cox NOLA is soon.

I want Cox Sports in Shreveport over my DirecTv. Bossier has it on Cox Cable so they should hopefully provide it for the Northwest Louisiana and hopefully the entire State.

No. You'll see it on the appropriate thread when there is news.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Being a fan of the SB champ Saints, I wish they would carry it as they carry all their preseason games but I know NFL Network carries all preseason games from all teams whether they are live or delayed.

They carry a lot more than just the Saints. If you like SEC Sports then they offer a lot of that as well.
