LATEST ON CSN HOUSTON: In Houston, David Barron reports Comcast SportsNet Houston’s exclusive 120-day window to “file its plan to reorganize” in U.S. Bankruptcy Court is slated to expire today. The law firm representing the RSN yesterday asked for “an additional 30 days to file its plan.” The request was approved by officials from the Rockets, Astros and Comcast. The "fact that attorneys are seeking extra time could indicate that progress is being made" toward "revamping the troubled CSN Houston partnership" (CHRON.com, 6/3). Astros GM Jeff Luhnow yesterday appeared on MLB Network and gave an update on the proceedings. He said, "A lot of effort’s going into that. I’m not intimately involved day to day, but I do know there are people optimistic that we’re going to get this resolved. We are going to get this product on TV and we are going to be able to show our fans what’s going on here at Minute Maid [Park]. Right now there’s quite a few that can’t see it. It’s one of those things that has been unfortunate over the past few years, but I’ll tell you it is Jim Crane's No. 1 priority and it will get done at some point" (“MLB Now,” MLB Network, 6/3).
