the FCC denied Comcast's appeal in June. I believe DISH Network have contacted the FCC complaining that Comcast is trying to charge an outrageously high fee for CSN Philly [one that is not in line with what they charge for the other CSNs nationwide, those CSNs can't be withheld from the Dishes, as they are not part of the loophole]

correct. ridiculous, isn't it ? Comcast is dragging their feet in this as long as they can ... been doing so since 1992 - yes, nearly 20 years !!

if you have the DISH and are in Philly = no Flyers games on the Dish.

unless you use the 'Anti-Loophole Loophole', as described earlier

who said petition ? they opened up a new website, which includes direct contact information.

and there are many Flyers fans who want the Flyers games on CSN on the Dish

[even though there is a way to get the games alone on the Dish, as described earlier]
