Re: Rockets Channel

Not being up front?  The way sports teams change channels now days it's hard to keep up with who is playing where.  If the Rockets and Astro's hadn't decide to bolt from Fox Sports Houston it wouldn't be an issue.  However they have gone to a different channel that is not as widely carried now.  So the agent that told you that more than likely doesn't even realize that they have moved to a different channel.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

Does anyone know if you can trade the Longhorn Network for Comcast Sports Net Houston?  Seriously, its stupid you can't watch the home team.

Comcast Sportsnet Houston

Why hasn't this deal gotten done?  I'm gonna drop UVerse like a rock if I can't watch the Rockets starting on wednesday!

I would trade you the Longhorn channel for the gum on the bottom of your shoe.

We all understand you don't want the Longhorn network, but what does that have to do with Comcast Sports Net Houston.

 

You've also wanted the Pac-12 and the TWC Lakers network, so are you even in an area that will get the games?

I never said I wanted the PAC 12 or TWC Lakers. I live in Ohio. Not sure who's post your reading. The trade reference was in regard to the above poster saying he would trade longhorn for Comcast Houston.

Re: CSN Houston

I wanted to register my disappointment that a deal has not been reached. 

Not being able to get local sports teams when I pay as much as I do a month is not acceptable.

Re: CSN Houston

Looks to me like Comcast is overvaluing their product.  Considering games will be blacked out outside of Houston the price they are wanting must be extremely high for the so called "big boys" to have not reached a deal yet.

That's true for the Rockets' basketball games; however, this channel will also have the Houston Astros baseball games.  All of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and part of New Mexico are in the Astros' territory.  Thus, their games will not be subject to blackout in those areas.

A minor league in Sugar Land and apparently a farm league for the Yankees called the "Astros".

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

The Houston Astros are a young team with a brand new owner and a brand new stadium. They are moving to the American League where they might form a natural rivalry with the Texas Rangers. Since I live in Ohio Uverse getting Comcast Sportsnet does not matter to me. But for Astros fans it means a lot. For the apologists who rule this forum to belittle them is low even for them.

I'm well aware of who the Houston Astros are, and being a Ranger fan there is already a "friendly" in-state rivalry.   Trust me, I would like nothing more than all these new sports networks to be added, but Comcast has no real incentive to keep the prices reasonable since they have overpaid for the exclusive rights. A big part of the blame goes to the Rockets and the Astros for not really caring about their fans and moving to a new network without any carriage agreements.
