Rockets Critical Of Comcast In Latest Court Filing Around CSN Houston Case

DAZED & CONFUSED: The HOUSTON CHRONICLE's Barron wrote, "How confusing is the Astros’ current television brouhaha? Even DirecTV, apparently, can’t figure it out." The YES Network feed of the Yankees-Astros game "was shown nationally Tuesday night on MLB Network." In the Astros’ "five-state TV market, the game was supposed to be blacked out and replaced by Blue Jays-Rays." Comcast "complied with the blackout order," airing the Blue Jays-Rays game, but DirecTV "failed to throw the switch" (CHRON.com, 4/1).
