OK...Idon't know if this has been posted, but I think it is important enough to keep it near the top.
Comcast is actually making an effort to get us all service. Go to the CSNNW website. At the top there is a link that says "I want Comcast SportsNet" . Click it and it will ask you for your cable/satellite provider. When you pick Dish, et al. it will say it is not available (duh!).
The cool part is, they provide a link for you to send an e-mail directly to your provider. It is already written for you. All you do is add your name and hit send.
The cooler part is they never make you enter an e-mail adress and you can send as many e-mails as you'd like.
Do this now! Make your voice heard instead of preaching to the choir!
