YouTube TV dropping FSD

Post by sinklair » Fri Feb 28, 2020 9:13 am

Another sign of how Sinclair screws up everything...

YouTube TV says it’ll be dropping Fox Sports Detroit later today over f-up’d retrans negotiations. Sinclair decided to dramatically raise rates after taking over the regional sports nets.

Now people are lashing out online about SBG’s greed. Haven’t the Tigers suffered enough???

This happens a lot... it’ll be back when it’s settled more than likely...

Hopefully faster than the negotiations with AT&T took last year.

I LOVE SPORTS! But I love paying $49.95 per month for YTTV. Instead of paying $150 for other service. #Savings

I wonder if Hulu caved to Sinclair's demands, as I have Hulu with live TV and my bill went up $10 last month. I suppose it could be worse for local sports fans, at least we're not Los Angeles Dodgers fans being locked out of watching their teams games on TV with most providers, except Spectrum, (formerly Time-Warner.)

Heard today that there is a possibility that Comcast will NOT renew their contract with the old fox regional sports channels. That won't sit well with the Detroit sports teams or Comiecast users.

They’d probably get together and start a new RSN...

Fox Sports Detroit has been off my Dish since last July. Sinclair better come to their senses, their greed could come back to bite them in the ass.


It's all about the money!

Rumors are Comcast/Xfinity will drop them in September, just in time for horrible hockey and basketball. Nice.

Wasn't this how PASS died and Fox Sports was born many years back?

I think it was something vaguely similar...

Yes. They did coexist very briefly, but PASS was pretty much left with the Hazel Park raceway and other junk.

Somehow FSD is still working on my Youtube TV, or at least it was 2 days ago...
