Well, Harden had 37 points last night in his Rockets debut.......good thing I had UVERSE so I could watch it........OR NOT.  I dont care who's fault it is that 50% of the city of Houston cant even watch the Rockets.  Just get the freaking deal done.

You don't care that it's really the ROCKETS' own fault?  In a quest for more money, they jumped to a new channel that didn't have carriage agreements in place?

 

Sigh.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

Actually The Rockets and the Astros have partial ownership in the channel so it made financial sense for them to jump to this channel since they now make money off of the ad revenue even when they arent playing.

However, if noone is carrying the channel it really doesn't do them any good.

Yep.  No carriage, no viewers, no ratings, no ad revenue.

 

But, again, what they saw:  $$$.  What they didn't give a rip about: fans.

If that's the case, then the Astros and Rockets have a say in negotiation deals with other providers, even if Comcast objects.

I might care that its the Rocekts' own fault, but whats done there is done.  They aren't going to cancel their deal with comcast.  If ATT doesn't get the channel within a week, I'll be dropping my service.  My 6 month deal with the lower rate is almost up anyway.

I think I'd switch teams, but do what you gotta do.

Hope you have Comcast in your area, that's the only provider that's carrying it.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

Yes, they do have comcast in my area.  I chose Uverse over them when I moved in.  I know thats the only stupid provider carrying it, and I know its the rockets' fault for getting into this stupid deal.  I hate comcast, but I hate living in a city where I cant watch the local team even worse.

Maybe Comcast has less incentive to negotiate fair carriage deals because they can use the channel, which they own, as a means to steal customers from their competitors.  It is interesting that no major provider has reached an agreement with them.

Re: COMCAST SPORTS NET HOUSTON

No offense, but obviously you're not a huge sports fan, or at least not a fan of one team.  You dont just switch teams.  I'm not loyal to some stupid cable company that I've only had for 5 months over a team that I've followed my whole life, even if they do make questionable business decisions.  Heck, maybe I'll just keep switching companies based on whether its basketball season or not!  Keep getting the good intro rates!

I dropped a pro sports team I had followed all my life when they treated their longtime coach in a shoddy way.

 

This team is treating its fans in a shoddy way.  Seems more personal to me.  Whatever.
