I live in Philadelphia. We have a channel called Comcast Sportsnet that has coverage of the 4 pro sports teams, as well as any miscellaneous Philadelphia sports year round. It has the broadcasting rights to most Flyers, Sixers and Phillies games. Whenever not broadcasting a game, it has some type of show on either analyzing local sports teams or giving a Sportscenter-esque recap of the day/week in sports.
Most of the programs are well run with top-notch personalities. I'm extremely satisfied with it, and already have a hard time imagining how just 5 years ago we had nothing of the sort.
I live in Forks Twp. Pa and Stewartsville, NJ depending on the time of the week. I get comcast, all ESPN channels, along with a direct TV package that allows me to whatch whatever the hell i want for $300.
In Boston, the Red Sox and Bruins games are shown live on a cable channel called NESN (New England Sports Network). In addition, the Sox have a very small handful of games on two non-cable channels plus national games I think are on ESPN and non-cable Fox.
The Celtics are on Fox Sports New England (I think that is what the channel is called) or were but...who cares! The Patriots are part of the NFL TV package; all their non-nationally televised preseason games are on the local ABC affiliate if I recall correctly.
As far as highlights, there are local news affiliates on ABC, CBS, NBC, UPN, Fox and the WB Network and each shows highlights. There is also a 24/7 channel called New England Cable News which is much like a local CNN Headline News.
