Looks like it could still go either way at this point. Hopefully they end up with RSNW.

They can just fold up like CSN Huston did. Will they pull in the Vancouver Canucks set of games?

 

Will the Vancouver Canucks set of games end up on an different channle?


I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

And yet the Montreal Canadiens are not available in VT, which is only 100 miles from Burlington. I would understand southern VT not getting them, being partially in the Boston market. But my parents are like 75 miles from Montreal and only get Bruins, 4 hours away.

Who knows? The Trail Blazers gave Comcast incentives for better distribution plus they have new leadership as far as those over distribution. This might finally be what it takes for this one to get resolved

It would be great to know what the incentives are.  A saturation number means higher base revenue?

 

And this Sony Vue thing, so $35 a month for Sony Vue, which happens to carry CSNNW that really is odd.  They are selling it as an over the top but it's not really.  This is like the Pac-12, how much money are they not going to make because they don't have DirecTV or Dish.

 

I'm still perplexed about how Root didn't get it, especially if they were offering more.  Not knowing who carries Root vs CSNNW, it sure seems like Root has a larger existing saturation. And not following the slippery slope that says Comcast won't be able to renew Root, why wasn't Root a better choice?

 

Finally, it would be interesting to see what the total number of double dippers are out there that have Comcast and another TV provider (specifically DirecTV - NFL Ticket).  

 

On the face of it it sure seems the Blazers were not thinking about the fans.
