Wish that was true. iPhone MLB app checks your GPS location before letting you watch a game. If it can't figure out where you are, you can't watch any games - which can be a pain when the GPS isn't working.If u have an IPHONE (or android) ap nuthing gets blacked out cus they dont know where u are
Perhaps I misunderstood you, but if you're suggesting that the thread be closed:
If the current thread is left open, no new thread will have to be started when the situation with SNY changes. Threads tend to die on their own if left alone.

Dish just might as well let SNY go as well. I mean it's the only RSN at this point on E*, and if you think about it, how many people are ONLY Mets fans (that's all SNY carries right?) AND would be willing to subcribe to a service that only has SNY for an RSN?
If Dish won't even care about the sports fans in the number one market in the United States, the clock is ticking for the rest of us. I'm saying this loud and clear, the only way that there will be no NESN in my home is if I choose not to subscribe to pay tv, so should Dish drop NESN, I drop Dish. That statement must hold true for the Buffalo and NYC markets concerning MSG, YES, & SNY.
However, Dish could be trying to corner these RSNs into accepting A La Carte. I can see why Dish would want that (people see how much each network actually costs), but I can't see where Dish would succeed, cable/ISPTV/DirecTV carry all of these and people can simply switch providers. (And I absolutely believe that YES and DirecTV will reach a deal.)
And that's the problem. RSNs (and all cable channels for that matter, including ESPN, CNN, FoxNews and the other expensive ones) know they make far more money being in a basic package than with a-la-carte. At one point some RSNs such as KBL (Pittsburgh), Prism (Philly), and Prime Ticket (L.A.) were premium channels, but these are all gone.Years ago, when "SportsChannel" carried the Met games for Cablevision, I had to pay $12 a month for one channel. $2.30 is a bargain. If they go a la carte, the price will quintuple and they won't make as much revenue as they will when they sell it at a 80% discount to everyone (but make it mandatory for most everyone in that scenario for all but the most basic channel tiers)
I wonder what is going on with the bills of people who are paying for AT120+ in the New York area. That package is AT120 plus an extra $5 a month for local RSNs, but now Dish carries none in that region. Do you think those people are going to be automatically dropped to AT120 pricing levels, or will Dish keep merrily charging them $5 extra a month for nothing unless they call to manually change it?
