Watch comcast and spectrum pick up business dtv also has NESN. The good thing with direct is I can get NESN in CA
As I have always said, if a viewer wants unlimited Sports, then Direct TV is a better choice. I am not into Sports, so Dish is the best for me.
Wrong, they don't have the Pac12 Network so people out in the rural areas of Oregon are screwed and the only way they can watch both the Ducks and Mariners is to pay for both Dish and DirecTV...As I have always said, if a viewer wants unlimited Sports, then Direct TV is a better choice.

That’s assuming a majority were watching those channels.Wrong, they don't have the Pac12 Network so people out in the rural areas of Oregon are screwed and the only way they can watch both the Ducks and Mariners is to pay for both Dish and DirecTV...
I recommend people switch to a better TV provider. Your bill isn't going to go down because of this and Dish is going to go bankrupt over these lost customers.
Then that is a terrible product to attempt to be selling. This isn’t at you, but essentially to core of the argument:The problem is the RSN's can NEVER survive without passing the cost on to subscriber who NEVER watch RSN's ever. The monthly charge as a seperate subscriptions price would likely bankrupt the RSN's. RSN's have no choice, and one has to remember that old Rupert Murdoch unloaded many of those RSN's because he saw they were no longer going to be money makers in the new TV entertainment landscape. Murdoch kept the FS 1 & 2 channels. Then Disney CHOOSE to keep the ESPN's and unload the RSN's (the Justice Dept. told Disney they could keep one or the other, but not both) on the first fool to buy the "magic beans." Not all companies have the same level of smarts as other companies do.
Had an odd thing happen the other day.Info-Hopper 3 and Top 200 in Vermont.
Since I grew up near Philly I like to watch the Sixers occasionally.Like if they pop up on ABC or espn or NBA tv.In other words as part of Top 200 package-nothing extra.
I have them entered in the sports finder.On Friday night it reminded me they were playing on I think channel 470 against the Miami Heat.In any case it was an alternative sports channel.I got there before the game started and the screen was showing the usual ad for the multi sport pack .Once the game started it was a Miami feed with Miami announcers.Occasionally I was reminded that it was a Bally channel.
So what the heck happened?I"m not complaining-just wondering why I had access to that game.
Oh, they'll definitely lose customers. The Red Sox are BIG in New England. The season might start late while MLB and the Players Union work out a deal. But once they do…
