Living in Pa we pretty much have one cable company that controls the entire state. There are some small rural cable companies still in existence, but none can compete with Comcast. In case you have not heard. Comcast is attempting to buy TWC at the moment but it still needs approval for the two companies to merge. When it comes to sports in the area where I live. (about 70 miles west of Philly) If you want to watch any of the Philly sports teams you need to have Comcast. Comcast could care less about customer service since they have you by the balls. As the only large provider in the state you have no choice but to choose them if you are a fan of any of the Philly sports teams. The only competition they have is from satellite providers here. And the number of Sat. subscribers has gone through the roof in the last ten years as people now have an option for their cable supplier. In response to that threat. Comcast refuses to let anyone with a Sat. dish receive any Philly sports. Comcast Philly is the only regional network that is not allowed to be shown on Directv here. I expect them to do the same with you people in LA. So if you want to see the Dodgers. They will force you to get rid of your dish in order to view them. They really don’t care if the other cable companies balk at their demands. Because they know. Eventually the Dodgers fans will have to switch over to TWC in order to watch them.
