the below exerpt on how they want to have available to E* and D* Comcast Sportsnet. I'm sure Comcast will fight this.


On program access, the Stevens bill would immediately close the so-called terrestrial loophole, which allows cable operators to withhold terrestrially delivered affiliated program from competing pay TV distributors. That provision is aimed at forcing Comcast Corp. to sell Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia to competitors.

This would certainly increase satelitte penetration in the philly market should this part pass.
