FS Houston Airs Final Astros Game Today; Will Be Reabsorbed Into FS Southwest
Published October 3, 2012
TEXAS HOLD ‘EM: In Austin, Kevin Lyttle notes CSN Houston has “an ambitious live schedule that includes all Astros games, Rockets games, at least 28 regional college football games and six Thursday night high school football games featuring Class 5A teams.” The net’s first live event is tomorrow night, but it "does not have any significant carriage contracts with Central Texas TV providers.” Having Comcast and Time Warner as rivals is “complicating matters.” If no deal is reached before April, the Astros “would begin a new era in the AL without their games being on TV here.” Historically, Central Texas “was Astros’ country.” The lines "have blurred, though, with the changing fortunes” of the Astros and Rangers (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 10/3).
