Here's David Barron with an update on the CSN Houston fiasco, and it's not pretty.
Barron quotes a statement from from DirecTV about CSN Houston:
“Unfortunately, we have yet to be able to reach an agreement with the
owners of CSN Houston that allows customers to choose whether they want
to pay to see the games or not. We are ready and willing to have that
discussion any time so we can begin providing this network. Until then,
DIRECTV customers can still see Astros games on FOX, TBS, MLB Network
and especially ESPN (which carries the season opener) or hear the games
on Houston’s KTRH 740 AM, XM Radio and other regional radio carriers.”
HAHAHAHAHA Because Fox, TBS, MLB Network and ESPN are all lining up to show regular season Astros games in 2013. HAHAHAHAHA. So what CSN Houston is telling DirecTV subscribers is:
1) You can watch Astros games on networks that aren't planning on showing any Astros games or
2) Listen to games on the radio.
Remember, MLB.tv will not work for you if you are in Texas, or any other state that even thinks about Texas.
