I seem to recall a few NYT editorials when Cablevision and the YES network were battling. Shoe's on the other foot now.

...and for any of you who do call or write emails, add a little tidbit about how there is only one county in New England without NESN, Fairfield County. I would love to be able to watch the games when I go visit my girlfriend. That is all.

I dunno how many pitches he's at, but I'd actually feel less comfortable with Beckett pitching in the ninth of a 1-0 game than I did yesterday with Lester. Becektt likes the longball a bit too much for my taste in a game this close...

Wrong thread... :-P

YF: this has been a totally bizarre situation, somewhat dissimilar to the petty squabbles of the Dolan clan, which were attributable to territorial issues and pricing strategies. I subscribe to Directv's MLB package - in other words I pay $160 for the season's games, yet NESN's pre-game and post-game shows had been blacked out. So I get the games, but not the pre- or post-game commentary. That makes (or made, if the situation has been worked out) no sense whatsoever.

Does MLBTV also black out the pre and post game stuff? I have the DirecTV package, but at half the price, the netcasts seem like a decent alternative.

They've received my pissed off comment in spades, rest assured.
I'm a transplant. I'm sequestered in Chicago, and if I can't enjoy the Sox (red, of course) here, well, then crap, what's the point?

Yet again, the elitists at SOSH claim the victory only for themselves!

Wait, NESN and ESPN are different channels?

Neff Sox nailed it: BEFORE THEY WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, NESN SHOULD GET INTO FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CONNECTICUT. IT'S PART OF NEW ENGLAND AND HAS NEVER BEEN ALLOWED TO SEE NEW ENGLAND SPORTS NETWORK.

And what's up with DirecTV providing NESN in HD only in the Boston market? Those of us in the Providence market, and I imagine others, still screwed here.

Vic SF: no, if it's not part of the game itself, MLB.tv does not show it. FWIW, I'm just glad that MLB.tv decided to end its moratorium on NESN broadcasts starting with the KC series.

I too am more than somewhat distressed! I pay "twice" for NESN and usually get the "other team's broadcast" if on MLB pay pkg.I live 6-7 miles out of NE in NYS. When is baseball,incl. NESN (& YES) going to wake up and realize everyone is not a fan of same team...WANT TO BE REALLY PO'D TRY CWS WITH THAT MORON HARRELSON. "HE GONE". Terrible.Thanks for NESN e-mail address
