Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia Goes 100% HD

Philadelphia sports fans will get 100% high definition coverage for all Flyers, Sixers and Phillies games on Comcast SportsNet. This will include both home and away games, as well as playoff games (if they get there).

During the 2008-2009 season, Comcast SportsNet plans to broadcast 64 high definition Flyers games and 69 high definition Sixers games.

Of course, DirecTV and Dish customers still get none of the CSN HD love, since the monopolizing corporate whore that is Comcast chooses to exploit a loophole in FCC regulations to avoid negotiations with satellite television services.

Even though football season just started, hockey and basketball fans can start smelling the start of their seasons coming next month.

    Search Google for NPRM 07-198 to follow the FCC’s progress on closing the “cable loophole”. Comcast bought an old “wireless cable network” in Philly called PRISM, which was based largely on microwave. When the FCC allowed networks to stay off DBS if they don’t use satellite for transmission, Comcast did everything they could to make sure their game coverage never touched a satellite. Soon it won’t matter anymore if 07-198 passes.

    The Eagles problem was, is, and will continue being Shoeball McNabb-the NFL’s second most overrated player next to Tony Romo.
