This is getting ridiculous.
Houston, we’ve got to take a stand. The majority of our city is STILL without the ability to watch our Rockets and Astros.
This doesn’t stop with us regular folk.
Dexter Fowler, suffering through a hospital visit due to a stomach bug, wasn’t even able to watch his teammates take the field against a division rival.
Fowler says he couldn’t watch Astros games because no Comcast: “I don’t know what’s going on with this TV deal…we gotta fix something.”

“It’s crazy they don’t have the TV deal,” Fowler said.”I don’t know what’s going on with this TV deal. I tried to pull it up on everything.”

This is out of hand. When will we all rise up and revolt against Comcast??? Clearly the “wait and see” approach isn’t working. If our hard-working baseball players can’t kick back and take in a game on a sick day, I just don’t know what to tell you.
It’s clearly not getting any better. I mean… I’m not suffering alongside you as I pay nearly the same as people with U-Verse and Dish and DirecTV, and I get to watch our local sports teams each night if I so choose.
But, it’s not about that!! I get it, believe me.
The question remains: Will a deal be worked out, or will this ship finally sink?
I don’t care what channel they’re on. I’m pretty sure none of you do either.
All I care about is the fact that we live in a city that loves it’s sports teams, even though some of you tend not to admit it until the opportune moment *cough* Astros fans *cough*.
In the meantime, find a friend with CSN Houston or visit any of the bars around town that have it.
You certainly won’t be alone.
