In their second year, the official RSN of The New Orleans Hornets is Cox Sports-New Orleans, the only problem... no Satellite provider provides CS-NO!

Any other similar stories out there??

Lots of examples ...

Phillies, 76ers, and Flyers are on Comcast Sportsnet - Philadelphia. Comcast will not sell the channel to any satellite provider.

Padres are on a Cox San Diego cable channel. This channel is not on any satellite provider.

Twins are moving to a new channel, Victory Sports One, next season. So far, this channel has not been picked up by any satellite provider.

Royals started a new channel (Royals TV?) this past season. This channel was not picked up by any satellite provider. Eventually the Royals allowed games to be shown on Fox Sports Midwest.

Sacramento Kings want to start their own network next year. But their current contract with Fox Sports Net has expired. Not surprisingly, Fox isn't interested in signing a new one year deal, and as of now only 25 Kings games will be televised this year.

Blazers *were* on cable channel ASCN (or is that ACSN?) for a season or two before the channel went under. This channel was never on satellite.

And lots more teams want to start their own RSNs, many of which might not be picked up by satellite ...

In the Washington/Baltimore area, Comcast bought up our RSN Home Team Sports (now Comcast Sports Net). Since HTS was already on D*/E* it remains there. But for how long.

Also Comcast Sports Net is in HD, but not on satellite.

The Chicago professional sports teams are also planning to exit FSN late next year and form their own RSN. I think Comcast is involved in this move too. I wonder if this will be a cable exclusive deal.

We need to convince the ego-centered athletes that agents that they are greatly reducing their visibility by signing a contract with a team that has no national presence with it's RSN. Have the athletes say, if your team is not on MLBEI or NBASP... then it will cost an extra $10mil

I'm kinda supprised that I've never heard an issue around here (Peoria, IL area) when Jim Thome signed with a team that doesn't allow his family to watch with a subscription.

NBA games are on League Pass even though they are not broadcast on an RSN. MLB games are only broadcast when they are on a satellite delivered RSN. MLB has to get control of the telecasts in the same manner as the NBA and the NHL. They have to expand their telecasts so all games are broadcast on the EI package.
