Re: [Rant] Comcast removes HBO and Starz HD channels

said by mikedz4:

same with comcast sportsnet philadelphia. I heard comcast wants too much money for sportsnet phily.

Apparantly RCN and Fios don't think it's too much money; both offer comcast sports net philly in the philly area.

RCN does not have TCN / CSN Philly + aka the over flow feed.

Fios does not have TCN HD / CSN Philly + HD.

You are probably correct.

I wasn't responding about TCN or overflow channels. I was responding about the main CSN channels which is where most of the sports programming is televised.

Does TCN fall under the same terrestrial ruling? If I were fios or RCN I'm not sure I would pay for TCN either.


cast sucks

But for years CSN Chicago / FSN Chicago and sports channel chicago all used CLTV for over flow and other systems never needed to have CLTV same thing for MOJO HD that was used for CSN + HD.

Good job of trying to spin the words tho. Just so you didnt mislead anyone.Fios and rcn both have CSN which is what the original poster was talking about. Which dish or direct could also get but both CHOOSE not to pay for.

DirecTV was the ones complaining about the prices for comcast sports philly.
Also none of the local cable news channels are on satellite. No New York 1, no Pittsburgh cable news channel (which has little news on it anyways), no the comcast network, etc...

"About two years ago, a Comcast spokeswoman from Washington, D.C., told me Comcast was having "talks" with satellite companies. (I guess that sounded better than saying they were negotiating — more of a kick-the-tires approach — but it has drug on and on with no end in sight.)

Give Comcast credit. The cable provider found another technicality. They have to offer the content, but no one said they have to offer it at a reasonable price. So the "talks" continue.

Why does this matter? Well, an even playing field would create more competition and better deals (maybe not prices, but deals and specials) for consumers.

Gelles quoted Derek Chang, executive vice president at DirecTV as saying, "We would love to carry the product on fair and reasonable terms. We don't think we've gotten those at this point."

Why should Comcast or TWC make their local news channels available?

Maybe they should do it when DirecTV lets them have Sunday Ticket, their version of Extra Innings and the Audience Network.

cable had a chance to bit for sunday Ticket but even at the time window for that most systems did not have the room for all games in HD.
