Just to be clear ... DirecTV checks your credit report. If you have an address that doesn't show up on your credit report, it might get added to it. Now good luck getting rid of it, since you told a company it was a legit address. And if an identity thief uses that address, well, good luck ever find out since you don't get the mail for that address.

It is disgraceful that HF allows the linking of illegal streams, IMO.

that is flat out baloney. if you have DTV, and 'move', they do NOT do a credit check.

also, you can opt to keep your CURRENT address as your BILLING address ...... different from your service location.

has NOTHING to do with your credit report

BTW, I sent a link to this thread to DirecTV customer service. If you aren't doing anything illegal or wrong, that shouldn't be a problem, right?

here is the latest: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...DA-12-18A1.txt
Quote:
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
pre-merger.

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

I think the most recent development is CSNPhilly was going to be available if DTV was willing to pay. They weren't, so it isn't.

This is all Bryz's fault....

But seriously, I was hoping satellite would carry the Flyers b/c I'm so sick of both Comcast and Verzon colluding as monopolies (oligopolies) but it's no surprise they are continuing their anticompetitive business practices.

Fios needs to get TSN in HD. Call me spoiled but I can't stand watching the 5-10 games a year in standard def. Off topic I know but I just needed to get that out there for all the Fios execs who read HF and particularly this thread .

Ok, to answer your question then yes. I mean it's been a while since I had Comcast but I'm next to positive they have TCN in HD.

I'm just glad FIOS has CSN Philly. When I moved in 2010 I was sure the FIOS customer service lady was lying to me about that, and I almost got Comcast cable installed even though my new house already had the FIOS connections.

Just to be clear, I've been subbed to Directv now since 1999. I've changed/moved my "location" several times now without Directv checking my credit report. Returned back "home" each time without a question.

May I ask why you are so headstrong on defending corrupt, manipulative media carriers such as Comcast? Seems like such a backwards, outdated philosophy. I think as an adult, we should always strive to do "the right thing" but I just don't see how this situation fits that mantra. You're not hurting any business in Hockey or Media by moving your location so you can simply watch YOUR team on the carrier you happen to sub to. Were you the guy that outed me in 3rd grade when I gave everyone the answers to the Math test?

At the end of the day, I'm paying my bill. Directv doesn't care as long as they get my money. And neither should you. Give it a rest.
