What E* should do is make a sports free tier for those who want a cheaper bill.


The sports channels are too smart to agree to that deal. They make more money charging for people who don't want to watch than they would charging only those who wanted their specific channel or genre.

Do not settle please. That's how our bills got to where they are now. Everyone settled, settled meaning we pay more.

How many tampa customers would be happy if their feed was cut off?

 

If Fox bought this station, and dish carries Fox sports, why is this even an issue? This is Fox wanting even more money for one channel? Fox should grandfather this in, greedy sons of *****s

I just posted a comment on the E* comments board.  It's just one month until opening day.  Please resolve this dispute before then!

Yeah, how much is enough for these stations? Not happy with my bill as of late...

 

And MLB is coming soon. I really don't want to pay nearly $150/month and not get to see the Indians play.  And I don't want to pay $200/month (in the next few years I'm sure) in order to be able to see them play.

 

If the industry keeps this up it may price out many potential customers. I have several coworkers that won't pay for satellite or cable. People that make really good money.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing this stuff reach critical mass.

No doubt, Michael. Honestly, the only things keeping me with Dish right now are the recordings on my DVRs and EHD.  Don't want to lose those.

 

But if this continues into the summer, when the reruns are going, I may consider another option.  Switching will be difficult, but with free installation and the cheap introductory rates I may have to do it.

Did anyone else see the message E* is placing on the STO channel?  E* claims that STO wants E* to pay for the time we did not receive the channel! 

 

I also noticed that last night's rained out game was supposed to be carried on MLB Network. MLB Net was blacked out, even during the time before the start of the game when the Yankees were still on.

 

I wonder what will happen for opening day?  The game is being carried on WKYC.  Surely they can't blackout a local station's feed.   I wonder if there are other OTA stations carrying opening day in Indians territory?

The RSN can't block out games they aren't carrying.

Actually this has happened in the past.  Back in IIRC '03 when Fox Sports had the Indians before the days of STO and after half the broadcast games were removed from a local OTA station, an Indians at White Sox game was blacked out on WGN during a carriage dispute.

 

Additionally this game is carried on STO.  The STO feed is used by WKYC and other OTA stations in the Indians territory.  At least I can get WKYC with an antenna, however I bet if they did try blocking WKYC during the game that there would be ramifications.

Yep.  I'm happy, but I'm sure it will be taken into consideration the next time rates are increased.

I'm happy (!) for fans of the Tribe. I grew up near Akron, Ohio. Now, let's get ALL the Braves games back on FOXS and SPSOU. If they don't, I've always got MLB Strike Zone and MLB Tonight to keep me up to date on what's happening for the Braves games that Fox blacks out in the Atlanta DMA (weekends mostly) and seems to think E* should pay extra for.

Sounds like what FS Ohio did to Dish in '03 (see my post above).  In that case they actually had a different version of FSO for E* than what was running on the local cable and D*.  Only 1/2 the Indians games showed up, on days when a game beig played was not aired on E* we got "The Best Damn Sports Show..."  in place of the game.

question:

Why this particular RSN? Contract renewal? Does that mean every RSN up for renewal will put viewers through this?

With their bigger channels [FOX] isn't singling out one RSN Greedy beyond words?
