Re: Rockets Channel

Probably the same channel they were on last season.  FSSW Houston, 754/1754

A new RSN, Comcast SportsNet Houston,  for the Rockets and Astros will be launched this fall.  Yet another round of carriage agreement negotiations for the TV providers!

This is all AT&T's fault.

 

There! It's already been said.

No announcement has been made about carriage of that channel on U-verse.

Just for the record. All the people who claim that AT&T is guilty of nothing are just as pathetic as the people who claim AT&T is guilty of everything.

I didn't say that there were no negotiations.  I said that no announcement has been made about carriage.  As far as I know, no TV provider has made an announcement about carriage of Comcast SportsNet Houston.

AT&T doesn't HAVE to carry any channels but the locals.  There are other channels such as FS San Diego that AT&T does not carry.  I'm sure AT&T is going to be in negotiations to carry this channel, but since it's Comcast owned, expect it to take a while and it may cost more for this channel. 

As for the "millions of Texas people", UVerse ony has about 4.1 million subscribers and they are not all in Texas.  I do happen to live in Texas but I don't root for or watch the Astros or Rockets.  Happen to be a Rangers and Mavs fan.  You are also forgetting about the other Texas BB team the Spurs.  So I seriously doubt that AT&T would lose "millions" of customers.

AT&T has traditionally been very tight-lipped about upcoming channels and the status of existing negotiations.  There are no doubt many things going on behind the scenes that the public does not know about and will not know about until AT&T decides to make an official announcement.

No you said that if AT&T didn't carry the channel that they would lose millions of subscribers.  I doubt they'd lose more than a few thousand at most.
