Don't blame Uverse.  Comcast is the Devil.  The Astros & Rockets screwed their own fans by signing a deal with Comcast.

No wonder providers are balking.  At those prices I'm really surprised AT&T picked up the TWC Lakers channel.  Granted the market for the Lakers is bigger, but still.

$3.40 a month is up towards the range that ESPN costs per month per subscriber, and that's for about 6 channels. That's ridiculous for 2 pro sports teams.

If I was DirecTV, Dish, or AT&T, I'd tell Comcast exactly where they can shove that fee.

LOL.  So far, that seems to be what the TV providers are telling them.

Can't say I blame them at those prices.  Could be why no one has signed up for that channel.  Good job Rockets and Astros, way to win fans.

Not to mention that right now, for $5 you can get fairly decent Astros seats, including bullpen or mezzanine.

Plus for another $10, there's a beer and a foot long Texas chili dog with your name on it.

There's a second team involved.  You can watch them play baseball.  :smileyvery-happy:

 

Also, as I understand it, when other teams play the Astros they frequently hit balls into the seats of the outfield.  Seeing as how there's no one there, these balls are easily retrievable as souvenirs for the kids.

I will say the Astro's are my 2nd favorite Texas baseball team.  Also, since I'm from Oklahoma and Houston and Texas have now swapped minor league teams, I do hope they do better since the Oklahoma Redhawks are near and dear to my heart.

This is the deal. I've been a U-verse bundle subscriber since they came to Houston. Great service for a long time, but you lost me on this one. I would have paid an additional fee for CSN Houston. I called, you said sorry, I said bye. I'm sure there will be more to follow. End of story.

Hope you are going to Comcrap as they are the only provider that has the station.  Call the Rockets and Astro's management team and tell them your feelings and how the care so little for their fans.

Oufanindallas: I wish that when someone registers for this forum, their city or town location could be indicated in the registration. This way when someone like this OPW registers only to make an announcement that he is leaving U-Verse, we would know what alternative television providers that person has.

 

Since this OPW most likely will never post again, we will never know which provider he switched to.

I assume you went to Comcast, the only provider nationwide that has Houston Sports Net.

.

FSN Southwest (Ch.753-756 SD / Ch.1753-1756 HD)
- MLB: Rangers

FSN Southwest (Ch.753-756 SD / Ch.1753-1756 HD)

My understanding is that if you live in the Regional Sports Network area for the Houston Rockets you will not be able to watch them on NBA League Pass.  In addition, the Rockets and the Astros are no longer on FSN Southwest as you indicated, but are instead on Comcast Sports Net Houston.

No, the Rockets will be blocked out per NBA guidelines on League Pass.  That is only intended for out of area games and local games are not allowed to be broadcast.  Same would the case on MBL Extra Innings, Rockets and Rangers games would be blacked out since you are in the viewing area for both.

Complain to the Rockets and Astros managament.

You can only watch the Houston Rockets on Comcast Sports Net Houston which , as of now, is only carried by Comcast. No other providers, including U-Verse, is carrying it at this time. If the situation remains the same, you will only be able to see the Houston Astros on Comcast next season.

Contact the Houston Rockets and Houston Astros and let them know how unhappy you are that they have moved off a proven channel in Fox Sports to a newly created Comcast channel.

Here is a perplexing problem. Since U-Verse does not carry Comcast Sports Net Houston, and someone in the Houston RSN area wishes to watch the Houston Rockets, would Rockets games be blacked out on NBA League Pass for those people who have U-Verse?

 

I doubt that is the case, but since there is no RSN carried by U-Verse that shows the Rockets games, it may be a way around the rules. However, according to the rules, Houston Rockets fans who live in the Houston RSN area are out of luck.

Yes, the games would be blacked out.  Games are blacked out within the team's territory in the NBA League Pass package per NBA rules.  It does not matter if the subscriber has access to the local or regional broadcast of the game.

I would like to voice my extreme disappointment with everyone involved in the choice to start this CSN SportsNet Houston crap.

I don't care what anyone says this is not right that a local sports team is not available on major providers. Screw ATT, Comcast, Les Alexander, the Astros NBC and anyone eles invovle in the decision.

Yes, I have not made good on my threat "yet". Jumping to Comcast is not something I look forward to. I have mixed feelings about rewarding them with my business too since they are part of the reason Rockets fans like me are losing the ability to watch the team we love. Instead I conintue for the time being to pay hundreds of dollars a month to AT&T and am not able to watch Rockets away games unless I disrupt my life by switching providers (which would not be a simple thing since I have some accounts tied to email addresses that I have through ATT) and my Mother in law who we take care of is critically ill in the hospital and waiting around the house for an installer is not in the cards right now. But thanks for all your concerns .

 

[Keep it Legal] In the mean time I have lowered the level of my U-verse package from the top tier to U200 which is costing them money (and to tell the truth I don't miss most of the channels anyway. When I called ATT to complain about not having the Rockets games they basically just said "Sorry". But didn't offer anything in the way of information about what they are doing to change that or offering anything to me as a customer for the inconvenince. Everyone involved just expects us all to sit back until they figure out what they want to do and we are the ones losing out. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth about everyone involved in the decision to start up Comcast Sportsnet Houston and those who are making the transition either not happen ever or take a long time and that includes ATT.
