Re: [Cable] How can I force TWC to carry all the RSN's?
Is Comcast Sports Net Chicago really one of your home RSNs or would it be useful only for Cubs and White Sox games? Are the Blackhawks your home NHL team? Are the Bulls your home NBA team and are the Fire your home MLS team?
Team boundaries, markets, and RSN coverage areas do not always coincide. Example, I live outside of Buffalo, NY. We have no real home MLB team here, in addition to the Yankees and Mets, who claim the entire state of NY and some areas of PA, NJ and CT, the Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates are also my home teams. On DirecTV (lets forget Dish Network even exists since were talking sports here), if I have the Sports Pak, and I do, I would get all Pirates games in the clear on Root Sports Pittsburgh and all Indians games in the clear on Sports Time Ohio. All other pro sports would be blacked out on those channels. Now, Time Warner Cable does not carry either RS Pitt or STO in my area, as they are really are not my home RSNs. If I, and I usually do, order MLB Extra Innings, Pirates and Indians games ARE NOT blacked out on MLB EI on cable. Would you say your general situation is similar, or not?
Due to these oddball situations, in some areas, especially if you live in an area like you or I do, you may get an extra team with satellite or visa verse.
Here is the MLB Coverage Map.
I'm guessing the reason TW does not carry CSN Chicago in your area is that you do not qualify to receive 100% of all the pro sports the channel covers.
For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.
