I think I know the answer to this question, but since this is a scenario that rarely happens, I want to double check.  The Phillies are in Cleveland today and Wednesday.  I am a DTV customer (and Cleveland fan) in the Philly market.  As such, I don't get any Phillies games when they are broadcast on the Comcast RSN's, because of the ongoing dispute between Comcast and DirecTV.  The only Phillies games I get are when they are on the local Philly 57 CW network.

 

I watch Indians games on the Cleveland RSN, channel 662 STO/FSO.  Will the games be blacked out for me for the next two days, since those games are also carried on the Philly side by Comcast?  Does it matter that the games are in Cleveland and not in Philly?  Thanks.

Yes, you're going to be blacked out because CSN Philly has the exclusive rights to show the game in the Philly market.

As a lifelong Indians' fan myself, given the way our Tribe has played the last few years, you may be FORTUNATE that the games are blacked out in Philly! :)

Same thing happens to me in Tillamook, Oregon when it comes to the Blazers.  Their games are on Comcast Sports Northwest and I have absolutely no way to see that channel out here where I live as the only tv options are DirecTV, Dish Network, and Charter all of which Coincast has refused to negotiate with (by offering some idiotic amount of like $5 a subscriber for the channel, knowing that these other carriers will refuse, thus, it forces people in the city to have to switch to Coincast in order to see the Blazers).  The problem is, I couldn't switch to Comcast even if I wanted to where I live.  Therefore, I stopped caring about the Blazers and I just follow the other 29 teams instead.  I honstly hope the Blazers organization folds.

Don't blame the Blazers on this.  Last I heard they had an ongoing lawsuit with Comcast over it, because they want DirecTV, Dish, etc. to have the channel just as much as you do.


Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Why not blame the Blazers? They didn't do their homework and just jumped on the money. They have a bigger responsibility to themselves than just seeing the biggest dollar signs when it may hurt the product long term.

I am in the Lancaster, PA area (considered part of the Philly sports market), but this game was live last night on STO (Fox Sports Cleveland) last night.  In Center City Philly.. who knows.  Comcrap owns that area.  ;-)

I 100% blame the Blazers for alienating their fanbase by signing on with Comcast and agreeing to give 100% exclusivity and negotiating rights to Comcast without doing their homework on how Comcast's business model operates by being as anti competitive as possible.  Pretty sure their contract goes for over a decade too so half the people in the state will never see them play on TV again for god knows how long.
