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.


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

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.

I am about a week away from moving to Comcast because of this. Going to give it just a little more time.

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.

Re: Houston Rockets viewing, 2012

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.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

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.

Smiley Surprised  OK, anyone else you do not like?  You forgot the Houston Rockets.

It has been over a month since you made your threat to leave U-Verse on November 25, and you are still here.

I guess I could add you. Smiley Tongue

FYI, Les Alexander is the owner of the Rockets and I did mention him.

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.
