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.
