here is the latest:
The Commission partially exempted Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia from these
requirements because that network was terrestrially delivered before Comcast purchased it.

Given this, the Commission concluded that the method of delivery was not chosen for anticompetitive purposes, and
therefore decided not to subject Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia to its RSN conditions to the extent that the network
was not already available to MVPDs.

The Commission clarified in the Adelphia Order that the program
access conditions would apply to those MVPDs that had a license agreement for Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia

We note that Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia is now also subject to the complaint process
adopted in the 2010 Program Access Order discussed below

Any MVPD seeking access to Comcast SportsNet
Philadelphia may file a complaint pursuant to the procedures established in the rules.

In addition, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia is subject to the program access conditions adopted in the Comcast-NBCU Order.
basically laid out the groundwork for DTV to get CSN philly, now that the NBC-U merger went through
