    THe main reason I'd switch to Comcast is because they are the only ones that will have CSN-HD. I don't see either D* or E* put put the HD feeds of the RSN's anytime soon, bandwidth just isn't there. Charlie has made it known that there isn't any compelling HD content out there. If I can keep the existing HD package and the distant networks from E* only, I only duplicate 2 HD channels, ESPN & Discovery HD theatre. Keep HDnet, HDnet movies & TNT-HD and pick up INHD 1 & 2, plus Cinemas & Starz HD available if I'd keep that package.

    With E* I have a $5/ mo fee just to keep the extra rooms active X 4 extra receivers and I can get an HD DVR without the huge upfront costs.

    This is the 1st time in the past 7 years I've even considered going back to cable and the thing that started this process is the CSN situation. No matter what, this is one of the 5 most important channels to me, so a major part of my decision will be based on it.

    Here is the response I got from comcast when I questioned them about the launch date on Dish.

    Thanks for contacting us. DISH Network has an agreement with Comcast SportsNet
    Chicago for carriage and hopes to announce a launch date soon. Once DISH Network
    notifies Comcast SportsNet Chicago on when the network will be launched, we will post
    that information on our web site, http://www.comcastsportsnet.com. It is up to DISH
    Network on when they plan to launch our network. For further information on this
    matter, contact DISH Network directly.

    Considering the fact that ALL of Chicago's professional sports teams suck, along with each team's owner, why would anyone WANT to watch them? :D

    for those dish people who wanted to watch tonight's depaul game on another rsn, it isnt being carried by fsn ohio (dayton) or any other rsn, so we are out of luck.

    With Comcast Sportsnet carrying most of the Depaul games, and with the Bulls playing tonight, they didnt pick up the game and FSN chicago did, so I guess we wont see any Depaul games this season.

    regarding friday's notre dame vs michigan hockey game on fsn chicago, that game is originatting from fsn detroit, so if you have the multisport pack by then, turn on channel 430.

    And going. The fact is once again Dish is giving us less for more. I don't change because I have too much invested in equipment, and for all of its faults I still think E is the best option, but that doesn't mean we can't complain when we are asked to bend at the waist.

    Wednesday evening December 1 6:00PM

    Called Dish again. It is the 5th call since Monday morning. The news is different every time. This time I learned that the Chicago area viewers WILL be getting the Multi Sport Package on December 15 FREE of charge for the duration of time that Comcast Sports Net Chicago is not available.

    I am sorry that I posted what now seems to be poor information last night. It was what I heard at that time.

    I am not calling Dish until after December 15 in regards to this issue. I am going to allow December 15 to arrive and see if the Multi Sports Package (or Comcast Sports Net Chicago) is added at that time. If something is not added at that time, I will call again. If I find any added charges on my account, Dish will receive a call from me.

    Dish still says that Comcast Sports Net Chicago is coming BY April 1 and they really do expect it to be available well before that date. Seems like Comcast is saying that they have signed the contract and Dish is saying that it will be available when they are ready to release it.

    How many Chicago area Dish subscribers have called to complain? It might be that the percentage of complaints to subscribers is low and Dish does not see this as a big issue.

    This has been a tough week for me. Each time I have talked to Dish I have had to listen to a very loud humming sound on my phone. I have contacted the local phone company (SBC) and the repair is scheduled before Friday evening. So, if I did hear some information incorrectly, I am sorry. I did have each person repeat what they had stated to me in a slow, clear, louder voice so I could hear it better over the loud hum. I never gave the wrong information, just what was told by the individual at that time. Tonight, the person did say December 1-5 and I repeated it for acceptance.

    Thanks for understanding

    The Don's last post said Dec 15th for free Multi Sport - no date for CSNCH other than the ubiqutous April 1st, 2005.

    I don't know what is special about the 15th that isn't already special. Perhaps a CSR wanted people to back off for a couple of weeks? :D
