    Oh, good grief, the freeloaders attack. I have three things to say here:

    1. This won't cost me a dime in my packages, unlike RSN, ESPN, etc. that sport fan leeches demand but who won't reciprocate for by paying for my HBO, Showtime, and Starz.

    2. This won't occupy space on a satellite I need to get what I want.

    3. This will offer desired programming to many who will pay for what they want to watch without asking for money from me - good choice Dish!

    Hold on big fella! I live in Connecticut. My package is the 120 plus. In this package I pay an additional $5 for NESN, Comcast Sportsnet New England and SNY. So for that extra $5 I'm now really only getting 1 1/2 RSN's now that no more Celtics games will be on CSNNE until October. Even then it's technically a 33% increase. Or my favourite, pay the same and get less. So before painting with a broad brush realize that some pay extra for what they want.

    Also, is it good business to completely shut out the sports fans of the number 1 market in the world? No YES, MSG or SNY. Makes me scratch my head.
