Earlier this week DirecTV NOW pulled Comcast SportsNet (also known as CSN) from their lineup without any official statement. Cord Cutters News contacted DirecTV NOW for comment on Tuesday but have received no reply.
Comcast SportsNet is a regional sports network owned by Comcast and run by NBC Sports a Comcast Owned Company. Markets include Bay Area, California, Chicago, Mid-Atlantic, New England, New York, Northwest, and Philadelphia. Each of the networks carry regional broadcasts of sporting events from various professional, collegiate and high school sports teams, along with regional and national sports discussion, documentary and talk show.
Now it seems that DirecTV NOW is adding Comcast SportsNet back to their lineup. Several readers have told us that CSN has shown back up in their lineup. Yet it seems balckouts are still a issue with the Comcast SportsNet.
DirecTV NOW customer service said they where pulled for “technical issues” yet we can not confirm that. It does seem that most customers who contact DirecTV NOW are being told affected channels should return to DirecTV NOW and some have been told it will happen in about 10 days.
