HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Frustrated Houstonians unable to watch Rockets, Astros, and Dynamo games will get a chance to have their voices heard.
Comcast SportsNet Houston president and general manager Matt Hutchings will join In the Loop’s Nick Wright and John Lopez on SportsRadio 610 Thursday morning. Hutchings will answer questions from callers and texters about CSN’s current state of affairs and highly-publicized gridlock with local cable providers. Ongoing yet unresolved negotiations have left 60% of Houston fans in the dark for the entire Rockets season and the beginnings of the Astros and Dynamo seasons.
CSN Houston is currently available to only about 40% of the Houston-viewing market, predominantly to Comcast’s Xfinity cable customers. AT&T U-verse, DirecTV, Dish Netork, and other carriers have not reached agreements, leaving the fourth-largest city and surrounding area effectively blacked-out.
