    One question is why did Dish agree to a contract that apparently did not provide for full broadcast rights of all programming on FSW? Why is FSW allowed to demand more money midway through the carriage contract? The contract should be negotiated to allow full broadcast rights for the duration of the contract, regardless of what happens to programming. I don't see the value of a contract that allows the channel to increase its rates when programming changes. The time for the channel to increase its rates is when the contract comes up for renewal.

    So is this in any way related to the airing of the San Diego Padres games? Is there a new Comcast SportsNet San Diego or FoxSports San Diego carrying these games? and if so what is the zip code range for the Padres territory.

    There's a new FSN San Diego this year carrying the Padres.
