JUST BECAUSE you happen to subscribe to a second service outside of Comcast that doesn't carry the channel has absolutely nothing to do with Comcast screwing you! They provide it to you on YOUR LOCAL AFFILIATE ON YOUR LOCAL CABLE!!

Being a subscriber of both does not mean Comcast is screwing you!!

Why do YOU refuse to acknowledge this?

If anything Comcast has been screwing DIRECTV customers. NOT Comcast customers!!!

See the bolded statement? Yes it's important to many Flyer fans outside of the Philly region - but guess what? They don't have the luxury that YOU have by receiving it on your local cable affiliate, Comcast. Comcast is NOT screwing you and others who subscribe to 2 separate services. They are screwing Directv customers who don't have the luxury of living in the Philly area.
no, i do not get CSN Philly on my Comcast. I only have basic Comcast. They USED TO include CSN Philly on 'basic', then pulled it off basic cable, and now want another $40 or so monthly.

I have had DTV [for NFL Sunday ticket] since 1998. So, Comcast screwed me, since getting CSN Philly [and the Flyers on DTV] could not happen because of this loophole. Comcast figured I'd fork over the extra $ just for CSN Philly / Flyers games.

i'm still a comcast customer [basic cable & internet]. they tried screwing me by using this loophole, something they would not / could not do if I were a Sharks, Caps, Black Hawks etc etc fan [who can get CSN from their team's home town on DTV]

comcast can use this loophole, and tried to screw me and any other Flyers fan nationwide, who wants the same access to the CSN from their favorite team's home town. there are people out there like me, who have DTV, and who are Comcast customers.

Comcast absolutely IS screwing [or trying to screw in my case] some of it's own customers.

i would not let comcast get the extra $40 dollars, i simply came up with my own 'loophole' ....... told DTV i 'moved' to North Jersey [out of the Philly market], and for 8 years have gotten every Flyers game on DTV with NHL Centre Ice [i have no desire to actually get CSN Philly]
