Yeah...the Fox Sports RSN's are expensive and I can only imagine that Sinclair wants to charge more. Last year Fox Sports Detroit was $6.69 per subscriber; Fox Sports Arizona was $5.48. Contrast that with NBC Sports Chicago, when they had the Bulls, Hawks, Cubs, and White Sox, was $4.39, and Dish decided to drop NBC Sports Chicago.Based on stories here and there it seems Sinclair is asking for big increases, bigger than most. Maybe it is time for a sports streaming offering that exposes the high cost of sports channels instead might be in order. Then we would see just how willing the sports fans are to pay high costs just for sports instead of them being hidden in a broader channel selection.
