I was hoping to watch the Kings versus the Nuggets game on NBA TV on Sunday night as I ran on the treadmill, but the game was blacked out in Sacramento on Directv. Facing the prospect of not being able to watch 75% of the Kings games, I was seriously considering either switching to Comcast permanently or getting Comcast cable for a couple of months. I am been a Directv satellite customer since 1996.
As I logged on and started to look at the Comcast on-line sign-up, I found a press release on the Kings site that Directv had signed an agreement with Comcast SportsNet West late Friday night! Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 16, Directv customers can watch Kings games and other Comcast SportsNet sporting events on channel 656!
