Dish Network joins DirecTV and AT&T U-verse in declining CSN Houston’s free-view offer
Dish Network said Friday it has declined an offer by Comcast SportsNet Houston that would have allowed to carry the channel free of charge through mid-December.
DirecTV and AT&T U-verse also have declined the offer made by CSN Houston, the Rockets-Astros-Comcast partnership that is available to about 40 percent of the Houston area’s 2.2 million TV households. The offer would have allowed fans to see about 20 Rockets games through Dec. 15 while carriers decided whether to agree to longer-term carriage agreements.
“It is Dish’s practice to refrain from offering programming unless a long-term agreement is in place; anything less falls short of our customer service commitment,” a spokeswoman for the company said.
