Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

I just switched to Comcast. 

 

Tired of waiting.

 

Plus my U-Verse modem went out last Saturday and it took ATT 4 days to get a tech out to replace it.

 

They don't carry them in the stores.

 

I like having CSN and overall my service is cheaper.

 

ATT customer service has gotten progressively worse since I first signed on.

Thanks for dropping by to say goodbye.  Since Comcast is still the only major TV provider that carries that channel, you are probably doing exactly what Comcast hoped that you would do.

 

Good luck with Comcast!

You really wonder if TWC will take the same strategy with the Dodgers. If so, you wonder if TWC will have to raise rates nationally just to cover that insane contact.

Let's see if Comcast has that same "cheaper" service when their promotional rates expire and they jack prices up a buck or two every few months. At least AT&T does it $4-$5 once per year which is probably the exact same price hikes, but somehow easier to stomach.

When will AT&T start carrying COMCAST SPORTS NET?

Either carry and show COMCAST SPORTS NET in Houston or I will permanently switch to COMCAST!

Have fun at Comcast. I doubt AT&T picks it up, DirecTV doesn't even have it.

Comcast is holding the city of Houston hostage.  Let the owners of the Rockets and Astros know you are not happy with their agreement and the fact that CSN Houston is charging too much for terrible teams

I love these internet tough guy one post wonders who make threats that they will leave U-Verse unless AT&T does what he or she wants.

Owning a computer and not having the internet is like buying a refrigerator and not stocking it with food.

Apparently the vast majority of the people living in Houston don't want this channel for any price. Though ATT said they would offer Comcast Sports Houston as a al carte. But, Comcast is way  too greedy to let any TV provider offer it as stand along package.

Re: When will AT&T start carrying COMCAST SPORTS NET?

"CSN Houston is seeking $3.40 per subscriber, but the carriers are unwilling to go that high. YES Network, by comparison, charges carriers $2.99 per subscriber to carry all Nets and Yankees games."

 

With carriage fees that high, no wonder they have no takers. It's not like the Rockets and Astos are elite teams.  The owner of the Astros makes Tom Hicks look like a free spender.  There's a differnce in what the A's and Rays do with a smaller budget than what the Astros do with the bottom salary in MLB.

Would the AT&T represetnative who reviews this forum answer a question? Why in TEXAS of all places you not have the Comcast-Houston Network yet carry Comast-New England, Comcast-Chicago, Comcast-California and Comcast-Bay Area? C-mon Man!
