We are getting Verizon Fios in NJ as well and the southern half of the state
will be getting Comcast Sportsnet Philly. My prediction is that the
Fios Triple Play along with Comcast Sportsnet Philly in HD, or YES HD and SNY HD in northern half of NJ is going to take some subscribers from Directv and Echostar.

I live in Philly, and Comcast Sportsnet is NOT on Directv because Comcast is po'd at D*'s Sunday Ticket deal here, so they refuse to allow D* to carry Sixers, Flyers and Phillies games via Satellite. It's an ongoing game of chicken, and one reason hardcore Philly fans skip D*.

There will be no D* feed into FIOS that includes Philly Sportsnet.

Taken from Wikipedia:

In Philadelphia, Comcast distributes the signal only by land line. By doing so, it is able to avoid an FCC regulation that requires most television channels to be offered to direct broadcast satellite companies. Thus DBS customers in the Philadelphia region do not get access to the local team's games. However, cable companies other than Comcast within the CSN-Philadelphia market, such as Service Electric, do have access to the channel. CSN-Mid-Atlantic, Chicago, and West, however, are equally available on DBS and cable.
