Comcast SportsNet Bay Area
BEATING THE COMPETITION: In San Jose, John Ryan reports there could be a "trouble spot in the distance" as Comcast is well known for "using sports channels as leverage in its battles with competitors." Litner said CSN Bay Area will be "platform agnostic" and DirecTV confirmed that there is "no change in access." Ryan notes things still "could get interesting" in future contract negotiations, "or if a version of what's now [FSN Plus] emerges to handle the extra volume" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 3/26).
