Marquee

I do not know what the status of Marquee sports will be but I do object to the cost of their fans and non-fans. I for one will consider changing my choice of TV provider if the cost goes up to support the Cubs payroll. Comcast, please hold the line and not pay the Cubs

It’s been “close” for two weeks. I’d start thinking about alternate means. I am.

Obviously Comcast doesn’t care about my business, but boy do they want you to watch Peacock.

Hulu Live, here I come.   I've been more than patient with you, Comcast, but you have decided that your pettiness is more important than the millions of fans within the market you've decided to give a rude finger to.

 

Good luck with Peacock.

I will believe it when I see a true joint announcement and a what channel they will be on.

Looks like I'm going to have to cut the cord as well.  I've been on Comcast for more than 30 years, but I don't see that I have an option.  The season starts in one week and we've been told that a deal was going to happen any day now for months.   You lie!!!   Doesn't look like Comcast cares about its customers.  I'm tired of wondering if I'm going to miss the season after waiting 9 long months for Cubs baseball.  It's not that I can afford HULU live, but I can't be without the Cubs.  Shame on all of you!!!!!!

I would not be surprised if a deal is announced either days before the first game or on the day of the first game.

Yeah, I'm not convinced.  From a paragrah in the story you linked:

 

That, to be honest, kind of made me feel a little less confident – it made what he was saying feel less like a report and more like his own level of confidence. That’s still worth something, mind you, but it is much less than “Yes, this is absolutely going to happen, I’ve seen the documents!”

 

Comcast has no desire to add this channel.  That's been pretty obvious from day one.  The sooner you switch, the sooner you get the Cubs.

When will Comcast be adding the Marquee Sports Network?  DIRECTV, HULU Live, and many others already have this channel.  What is the status of this channel being added to XFINITY/Comcast??

Hey Comcast, get a deal done NOW with Marquee Sports! You stand to loose all of us Cubs fans!

I see they locked the previous thread on this.  That should tell you everything you need to know, unfortunately.

 

I will be cancelling, as will my parents, not to mention a few friends who will be dumping Comcast in the next few days if Marquee Sports Network is not added.

They won’t miss you, and I’m not saying that to be snarky.

For every one of us who leaves, someone will take our place. Nature of the beast.

There is another thread on this and some believe that a lost subscriber is magically automatically replaced with a new subscriber.   My post was bot removed for no reason but this is important to me and others after this has dragged on for so long.  

 

I guess Peacock is Comcast's the answer to that?   Maybe the metrics tell Comcast this, but its a black eye handed out to loyal Comcast customers any way you cut it.
