I was watching highlights of the FIA-UGA on ESPN and I noticed it was on CSS.

Why hasn't Directv picked up CSS?

Maybe because it is owned by Comcast and is only available on cable?

DirecTV could carry CSS, but I don' t see it happening since CSS doesn't show much in the way of pro sports. It does have a few Spring Training Braves games.

Many CSS games are picked up by an RSN and are available on the sports pack. Other CSS games are available through local broadcasters -- e.g., the Dayton v. Georgia Tech game in 2009 on CSS was picked up by WBDT.

One word: Comcrap
Wish list of channels for D*: C-Span 3; BBC World News; Sky News International; CBC Newsworld; France24; EuroNews; Eurosportnews; Setanta Sports News; ABC News 24 (Australia); Australia Network (soon to be ABC Asia Pacific); Al Jazeera English; Russia Today; NHK World; DW-TV -- Heck, how about an entire English-language international tier so I don't have to keep switching to my Roku?

Yes, we don't have enough sports channels on DirecTV. Only 65. We need at least 75 sports channels!

The way I understand it is that CSS is cooperative venture between Comcast and Charter Communications. They refuse to allow their product to be broadcast on Directv or Dish. The problem with that is that they are a minor broadcast partner with the SEC showing a variety of events including a limited amount of football, basketball, and baseball.

Maybe one day we will be able to see it, and please, someone correct me if I am misinformed.

I had Comcast from for a year before coming back to D* in June. Here in metro Atlanta on Comcast, CSS was broadcast in HD during certain sporting events (Football, Basketball), but it was primarily in SD. The bulk of the programming during the week was replays of college football from the prior weekend, talk shows about college football, live minor league and college baseball, and basketball.

The quality reminded me of old cable access programming. It is pale in comparison to the other Comcast SportsNets.

Channel 642 is Comcast Sportsnet, which listed the GA/FIA game in the guide last night. When I tried to tune it last night, I received the "blacked out in your area" message. I just tuned it now and of course it comes in with some useless "jock talk" being broadcast. So the channel is part of the sports pack, but when you want to actually watch some sports on it the program is blacked out. Of course it was available on the ESPN pay for SD games plan.

CSS is satellite delivered. It had to be made available to DBS providers. I doubt either one want it.

To bad that ESPN did not let Directv get game plan HD or some kind of remapping deal.

They wanted it in 2010.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Here is they say on their "About" page of their web site:

CSS is a 24-hour sports channel carrying a full slate of college sports programming and can only be found on cable.

I know it says that, but it is not a Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia situation.

Our local Teleco offers CSS over their IPTV platform too.

I've reviewed the schedules on the CSS website, they do quite a bit on the weekends but I'd say its worth carrying at the right price if at least the games are shown in HD and if there are a sufficient amount of basketball and baseball games.
