Yep, time for a new spasm of OPW.

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.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

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.

But that's about $14 too much for the 'Stro's.  Smiley Wink

Astros fan here. I'd just like to point out and say that you are overestimating thier value.

There's a second team involved.  You can watch them play baseball.  Smiley Very 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.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

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.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

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.
