One reason is TWC has apparently started a Sports Channel in the Dayton/Cinci area, and FSN doesn`t want TWC Sports getting a big chunk of NE Ohio.
FSN Ohio was operated by Charles Dolan (father of James & Larry) when the Indians were on FSN Ohio until SportsTime Ohio started in 2006
That would make FSN Ohio a big player again, especially in N Ohio, Indians territory.
FSN Ohio would then be run like FSN Florida/Sun Network between regions..
The word is the Indians owner Larry Dolan (not James, who runs MSG, NY Rangers, etc.) would still have an interset in the new venture
STO is a full time HD network, unlike FSN Ohio.
