    Those were from 2016. Uplinked on 4/19/16. You can do a search on his site for any channel number and it will provide all the uplinks it appears in. Searching for 19926 shows this is when it was uplinked: http://uplink.jameslong.name/updates/2016/04/41916-at-127pm-et-v15-9-changes-seen/

    2021. Not sure what month. I posted this link in another thread somewhere. Head down to the area where it talks about Dish and Sinclair RSN's. https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2019/12/16/Media/Sports-media.aspx

    Not yet... Cubs signed with Hulu so there is another streaming option now. But nothing with Comcast.

    I saw this on Twitter - RCN here in Chicago had a rate increase in January based off of what they projected Marquee Sports Network would cost, and now they are increasing their rates by another $2.40 because of how much more expensive Marquee is than they expected. 2 rate hikes in less than...

    Sinclair CEO warns Dish: Agree to deal or risk becoming irrelevant

    Dish is supposed to release their earnings today for Q4. Will be interesting to see how much they are hurting not having the FOX RSN's now for an entire quarter (and adding NBC Sports Chicago/Altitude into the mix since the last report).

    NESN Still Missing

    The thing that still gets me is that according to NESN's website, the RSN (minus the live Bruins and Red Sox games) is still available nationally on Dish: NESN National

    NESN Still Missing

    Thanks for confirming this. Was MASN also included in this? I noticed last time I had multi-sports pack that there was no MASN.

    Sinclair CEO warns Dish: Agree to deal or risk becoming irrelevant

    There is an interesting article on SI about Diamond Sports and facing bankruptcy. The interesting part is the 4th paragraph where it talks about Comcast and the FOX RSN's. The agreement between the RSN's/Comcast expires in June, and there is a sense Comcast is going to drop them due to cost...

    General DirecTV Question

    The TV's were LG TV's. About 35 inches. But I think it was the headend equipment. The numbers didn't match up with DirecTV's numbers. Channel 2 was ABC, 3 was CBS, 4 was NBC, 5 was CW, 6 was PBS, can't remember what 8, 9 were, but 10 was CNN in HD, 11 was ESPN in HD, 12 was ESPN2 in HD, then...

    General DirecTV Question

    I am staying at a hotel in Denver right now that has DirecTV. ABC, NBC, CBS, CW, PBS, CNN, ESPN, ESPN2 are all digital and HD, but then every other channel is analog. Is that normal? I didn't know DirecTV carried analog channels - I thought they were all digital? Maybe it is digital, but the...

    Sinclair CEO warns Dish: Agree to deal or risk becoming irrelevant

    There are reports out there that ESPN just outbid CBS for the SEC Football rights on Saturdays and the Championship Game for $300-330 million per year, up from the $55 million per year CBS is currently paying. So...I am guessing that the companies will continue to pay top bucks and pass along...

    I wish DirecTV/AT&T didn't come to a deal with Sinclair a couple of months ago. With the Comcast/Sinclair deal expiring in June 2020, had it been all these major providers with no Sinclair, then there might have been some movement.

    Is this the first game in conference play it has been like that? I feel like when there are out of conference opponents there are less blackouts than when both teams are from the same conference.
