Rockets Agree With Comcast's Stance In RSN Dispute With Astros

The Rockets have “broken ranks with the Astros,” their partners in the parent company of CSN Houston, by “informing a federal bankruptcy court that they agree with a motion by four Comcast affiliates to keep the troubled partnership under Chapter 11 protection.” In the statement filed yesterday, the Rockets said allowing the Astros to pull their TV rights would cause the "network to implode." Bankruptcy Judge Marvin Isgur will “preside next Monday over a hearing on the Astros’ motion to dismiss the bankruptcy case and Comcast’s motion to name an interim trustee for the network” (CHRON.com, 10/22).
