Still waiting for Indianapolis Comcast to carry CSN Chicago for all us Chicago transplants. I just do not see the underlying issue as to why if we are in the local viewing market for chicago sports that we do not have access to the channel we need.
Jayman----don't get your hopes up I have been complaining to Comcast for several YEARS about getting Comcast Sports Net Chicago in the Indianapolis and Northern Indiana area--even went as far as getting a hold of the head honchos of Comcast but nothing ever gets done about the channel. I have Directv just so I can get Comcast Sports Net Chicago for the Cubs games. Its so stupid because Comcast owns the channel and they won't put it on in this viewing area
That is disappointing to say the least. I would have figured that others would have done their best to get the channel put in play here in Indy, but it seems nobody is listening. I will not subscribe to multiple television providers simply for one channel. I think we need to collectively do a better job of teaming up as a fan base and get a hold of the powers that be to get it carried once and for all. I have spoken to a woman at CSN Chicago, and she insists it is Comcast and not them, so at least half the battle is on our side.
Your entertainment experience is very important to us. I have submitted your request for CSN to be added to your local channel lineup. We do track requests, so we appreciate your feedback. We cannot speculate on possible future channel additions until a launch is announced; however, we regularly examine our channel lineups and talk with a wide range of programmers to ensure that we are providing the content that our customers want the most. If a channel is added to a certain Comcast channel lineup, customers are generally notified one of two ways. Either a notice will be printed on a Comcast billing statement or an insert may be included with a mailed Comcast billing statement. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach back out to us.
The Central Indiana market needs to have this station. Fox Sports Indiana carries the Reds games..wish they could also carry the Cubs. Instead, we need CSN Chicago.
Comcast cannot simply add channels. There may be Designated Market Area issues with programming only being allowed in certain areas so as not to compete with other local networks and channels.
Exactly my point. The Bulls would remain blacked out per NBA territorial rights. But, Cubs and Sox and Blackhawks are blacked out on MLB Network and MLB.TV since Indy is in the local market. WHAT?! Makes no sense.
I signed up for MLB extra innings package to get the Cubs. But it doesn't matter - Cubs are blacked out in the Indianapolis market.
I am sick of this.
