CSN Philly coming to a Dish near you ...

A federal court last Friday upheld a recent decision by government regulators to close a loophole that had allowed cable TV operators to withhold sporting events and other popular programming from satellite TV providers and other rivals........

I've been praying for this for years. I get four feeds for every game except Philly's, where I just get the opponents feed. Please PLEASE let me see JJ and crew more than a couple of times per year.

The lack of CSN-Philly feed is precisely why I just canceled my NHL Center Ice service on DTV. With the hopes of CSN-Philly with game broadcast. If not I'm going to give NHL Game Center a try this season.

How does this ruling affect people who fraudulantly claim to live in a territory other than their own? They're still acting with criminal intent, yes?

The way it works. If you have Directv you will get the channel. But, all games will be blacked out if you are outside the Philly market. But, if you get Centre Ice/MLB/NBA Season Pass you will get the Philly broadcast. You'll also probably have to subscribe to their sports package. If you want the other Comcast programming.

as now they'll all be able to get CSN Philly on the dish ! Pretty great victory, because as it is now, every other Regional CSN [Chicago, SF Bay area etc etc etc] are available on the Dish, except CSN Philly. About time Flyers fans are no longer treated differently than Sharks fan etc etc

pretty much exactly right:


If you have Directv you can [when it finally goes live] get the channel, but have to subscribe to their sports package.

But, all games will be blacked out if you are outside the Philly market. But, if you get Centre Ice/MLB/NBA Season Pass you will get the Philly broadcast.

So being an out of area person with Comcast Cable, the NHL package, and that extra Sports Package, the channel will likely just appear one of these days and be available to watch?

This ruling is about Satellite Companies [and I think competing cable companies as well] getting access to CSN Philly Channel [and other channels, but we'll use CSN Philly in this example].

essentially you are correct:

If you are an out of area person, or a Philadelphia Area person with [or without] Comcast Cable, and you have the NHL package, and that extra 'Nationwide Regionals' Sports Package, the channel [CSN Philly] will likely just appear one of these days and be available to watch on Satellite companies.

Big win for all those Comcast customers getting charged out of the ass for their cable. I'll be switching to satellite as soon as CSN is available.

Bernie, your obsession with this issue hasn't gotten any less entertaining... Nor has your argument gotten any smarter.

Definitely a good thing for consumers, but the pricing will equalize quickly I'd assume.

Does this do anything to help out of area Dish owners to get the HD feeds from Comcast? I have Center Ice on Dish Network and for Flyer games I get the opponent feed about 75% of the time. The few times they do have the philly feed it's not in HD.

Also, anyone know if the dispute with MSG networks and Dish Network is resolved? I had all games vs. NJD, NYR, NYI blacked out for most of the season here in central/eastern N.J. tia.

Of course, satellite companies will have to agree to a fair market price before it appears on any satellite system. That's a point that seems to get missed by our resident Comcast hater.

This has nothing to do with zoning. It will make a feed available in theory, doesn't mean it will be picked up with regularity necessarily.

This isn't the first time this has been reported. Comcast always finds another way to appeal and keep this thing tied up in courts, it's been going on for years. I am not holding my breath. Even IF this is finally over and done with it'll probably be a few months before you see CSN Philly on the dish.

Can someone provide clarification for this. I have the sports pack on Directv right now and get NHL, MLB, and NBA games on regional sports network from markets all over the country, the games are not blacked out.

So if CSN Philly is added and I continue to buy the sports pack, why would games aired on CSN Philly be blacked out?

Furthermore, I always though blackout rules applied to when you WERE in the team's market.

Like I said I need clarification on all of this please.

You would get the games through center ice, but CSN only has limited broadcast rights.

Still not understanding.

Like I said, I have the sports pack on directv and watch "out of market" NHL, NBA, and MLB games all of the time on various regional sports channels, no blackouts.
