NESN moves to standard tier
New England Sports Network will become part of the standard cable package for the Boston area's biggest cable provider, AT&T Broadband, starting July 1. AT&T will increase the cost of its service by $1.40 a month for all of its 1.5 million standard customers to cover the cost of adding the local cable sports network, which broadcasts Boston Red Sox and Bruins games.
Special edition for Dolphins show
Orlando-based regional cable broadcaster Sunshine Network is planning a special edition of its popular "Sunshine Network Live!" news show, devoted to covering Miami Dolphins players' community activities this off-season.
Chargers show on the move
San Diego independent station KUSI-TV will be the new home of "Chargers Power Report" this fall and plans to move the program to a time slot before "Monday Night Football" each week. The new 8 p.m. ET slot is a change from past years, when the show aired after "MNF" on local ABC affiliate KGTV-TV. The program, produced by the Chargers, will originate from Chargers linebacker Junior Seau's local restaurant. KGTV is planning to air its own sports show after "MNF" this year.
