DIRECTV NOW Pulls Comcast SportsNet From Their Lineup




DIRECTV this week pulled Comcast SportsNet (also known as CSN) from their lineup without any official statement. Cord Cutters News contacted DIRECT NOW for comment this morning 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.

Suddenly this week after being on DIRECTV NOW since launch they have vanished from the DIRECTV NOW guide. Some readers have reported that 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.

This has left many DIRECTV NOW customers upset with few official answers.

We have reached out to DIRECTV NOW and will update this post when we learn more.
