CSN Houston offering Freeview

Today through May 31, CSN Houston is offering a Freeview.

CSN Houston President/GM Matt Hutchings:
“We understand that fans have been frustrated as we work through our negotiations with providers and have already collected more than 100,000 petitions for our network. While those negotiations must continue, our leadership team feels that this next stretch of games for the Rockets, Astros and Dynamo should be made available to the fans. This free trial comes with a sizable loss that our network will take on, but we feel that it is the right thing to do. We are hopeful that our affiliate partners at DirecTV, AT&T, Dish, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable and others across our region will take us up on this unprecedented offer and make it available to their customers.”

Now all that needs to happen is DirecTV, UVerse, Suddenlink, etc. to pick it up for the Freeview. And also for everyone to watch games, parts of games, or at least record it and delete it later.

Here's David Barron's write-up.

crawfishboxes.com has a listing of potential providers and telephone numbers that we can call to see if they will be carrying this free trial period...
I just called direct tv and the customer service rep that I spoke with said that she had just gotten off of the phone with someone else asking about the free trial period... she said that she had no current knowledge of the free trial period and wanted to know where I got my information...
gave her this website (astroscounty.com) so she went to it while I waited on the phone... she read both articles regarding the free trial period and indicated that she would forward them to the proper department...
told me to call back later or check directtv.com to see if they would be carrying CSN Houston...
