    we seem to be on a little hot streak - I'm getting the Blazers on Comcast Chicago feed this evening with League Pass - Probably still too early to celebrate, but I think this is 4 in a row....Beginning to wonder, (ok hope) that maybe there's been a little change in the DMA....

    According to the guide we will have the CSN NW HD feed for the Trail Blazers @ Warriors game tonight at 9PM ET/6PM PT. (Channel 757-1) Of course, this will only apply to us out of market LP subscribers.

    This is the first year I have been blackout in the TV league pass package for those games. Ever since Charter added the channel they have blacked them out. As a result I have had to pick Charter to get the station.

    That's interesting -
    for us, this is the first year since the inception of Comcast SportsNW that we are getting the Blazers - It *seems* like our area has been removed from the Portland DMA for the Blazers, as we are typically receiving both feeds with League Pass - we get Portland locals, and on the rare instances that the Blazer feed is on KGW (NBC) and not Comcast, the other teams feed is blackout - which makes sense - I wonder if something changed, and they opened the feeds to areas where cable is not available and blacked them out where its available - as with you ? don't know....

    I suspect that is the case. The only non blackout Blazer games are those on KGW. Everyone who lives inside Charter, Comcast territory, or another company that carries the station appears to be blackout now. What happened is that the Charter Washington areas were added to the blackout list for the TV version of league pass.

    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?

    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.
