    Why doesn't the app guide show the PT RSN subchannels like FS Carolinas? Anyone know?

    Houston Chronicle said that ROOT Sports Houston might be ready by early November. Meanwhile they are still carrying the CSN Rockets feed via league Pass if you have a NBA LP pay subscription. that is all i have right now.

    It's it that much paperwork contract to make it official?
    or is Directv waiting until the old contract expires but still in negotiation talks?
    I'm guessing the latter.

    Just got word that the Longhorn and Fusion channels which have been up in testing are going to be removed.

    To me this sounds like problems with DIRECTV's talks with ESPN.

    More as I know it.

    Remember you read it FIRST on SatelliteGuys.

    Oh brother. Now what? for us No Texas gams for a while. I hope this is not true. If it is they are going to be a lot of subs trying to figure out what will happen if ESPN is pulled by the 31st of December. Just think what will happen if there will Be NO ESPN of SECN for a while. What vdo you do. SWITCH providers? Hope Not.

    Thanks Scott. I do remember you told us first :)
    I am seeing Dec 31st dates being mentioned elsewhere in this thread. Has it been confirmed Dec 31st is indeed the end date for the Disney/Directv contract?

    Finally Scott, would you know why I can't post replies using Chrome? I click on the reply button and this text box where I'm typing these words in IE doesn't appear. And I am logged in the site in Chrome, too.

    No idea on the chrome issue, as I am infact replying to this message using Chrome. :)

    I would try clearing cache... or using the incognito function to see if it happens there. :D

    It has been inferred as the previous ESPN contract was signed December 31st, 2004 after 9pm EST and the term was ten years.
