don't even try it:

[unlike Time Warner Cable, who elected not to use the terrestrial loophole to deny anyone access to anything]

Comcast certainly COULD HAVE decided to behave like Time Warner, and not use the loophole, going back to 1992.

they decided that making the extra money from then until the time that the FCC forces them to stop, was worth the bad PR and negative consumer reaction.

Absolutely COMCAST is the one deciding which of it's customers gets access to their old CSN via competitors.

if they decided not to use the loophole, all of their customers would be treated equally.
