    thats not basic cable...

    NBC Sports is a new channel which use to be Versus
    [/quote]Im almost 100% sure that IS included in basic cable, just like TNT is...
    [/quote]



    In October 2005, Versus elected not to provide NHL coverage to a number of distributors, including EchoStar (Dish Network) and Cablevision,
    both of which refused Comcast's request to place Versus on a much
    higher-penetration package. During this time, NHL coverage was blacked
    out on these systems, replaced with other programming. It was believed
    that the reason behind these blackouts had to do with a penalty fee that
    Comcast would have had to pay the NHL if they did not significantly
    increase their distribution.<sup class="Template-Fact" style="white-space:nowrap;">[<span title="This claim needs references to reliable sources from April 2010">citation needed</span>]</sup></p>


    While Cablevision eventually came to an agreement making OLN/Versus
    available to any customer with digital cable, EchoStar retaliated by
    pulling OLN from its service; it was Dish Network's stance that few of
    its customers would be willing to have the channel if it meant raising
    rates. On April 24, 2006, the same date that OLN announced the
    late-September name change to Versus, Dish Network and OLN reached a
    long term agreement to restore the channel.</p>


    At the beginning of September 2009, DirecTV
    pulled Versus from its lineup, as it was unable to reach terms on a
    rate increase demanded by Comcast. In public statements (including a
    message shown on the channel which formerly carried Versus), DirecTV
    scolded Comcast for its "unfair and outrageous demands", and considered
    the company to be "simply piggish" in its demands for higher rates, as
    it described Versus as "a paid programming and infomercial channel with occasional sporting events."<sup id="cite_ref-33" class="reference"><span>[</span>34<span>]</span></sup>
    On March 15, 2010 an agreement was reached between the sides and Versus
    returned to DirecTV's lineup. The channel was returned to its original
    package on the service, Choice Xtra.<sup id="cite_ref-resolution_34-0" class="reference"><span>[</span>35<span>]</span></sup></p>

    lol, thank you for recognizing Poughkeepsie as a downstate city. I'm tired of ppl considering anything more than 30 mins from the city "upstate"...its hard to defend.
    to me, upstate is north of albany.</p>[/quote]

    yea but there were other teams close to alot of places in north NY than the Rangers

    I doubt there are very many Rangers fans that north i the state. They've had closer franchises that have been around along time. Plus while the Sabers only came in 1970, its still been 40 years - im sure thats long enough to build a fan base.

    Infact they draw better at home than the Rangers draw at home
    [/quote]Im almost 100% sure Albany carries MSG and NESN so they have Rangers and Bruins games on TV and Radio
    [/quote]

    im sure all of NY does, just by general contract

    i would bet even buffalo does as well

    but i mean not for nothing, Buffalo sells out more at home than the Rangers do in a similiar capacity stadium with probably 1/5th of the population
    [/quote]I guarantee that you're wrong on that one. Buffalo is much closer to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and a few others that it is to NYC

    And you have it wrong, the last time Buffalo had better attendance than NYR was in 07-08 where they sold out 109% of their games and NYR sold out 100%
    [/quote]

    okay you have to really accept the fact that the percentage of a sellout is stupid...

    They are based off of a hard number which is obviously pushed...

    Hard numbers is all that matters

    you can't say that Rangers sell out this year when they have 100% and they sold out last year when they had 103%....
    obviously there was another 3 % of tickets that could of been sold and weren't

    thats why percentages are stupid. Go look at the hard numbers

    average attendance per game

    06-07
    Buff - 18690
    NYR - 18200

    07-08
    Buff - 19950

    because u don't have one. They may of lost NBC but still picked up ABC.

    To put it in perspective - hockey tried to start their own station because ESPN wouldn't give them a big deal in which they then had to sell a few years later

    theres no reaching - thats facts

    Yes, but the fact that he never sees hockey is the moral of that story.

    Im sure they have more than 1 TV
    [/quote]He never chooses to watch it, I guarantee that hockey is on in Lando's market. Yes it wont be as big cause cmon SLC has a NBA team not an NHL team, I wont front about that
    [/quote]
    Even on a night with no Bball and 10 hockey games they don't show hockey anywhere. They don't even show the playoff games.
    [/quote]In SLC its Channel 34

    I was speaking about at the bars or restaurants. Everyone knows what channel it's on. Basic cable and they still don't show it.
    [/quote]
    thats not basic cable...

    NBC Sports is a new channel which use to be Versus
    [/quote]Im almost 100% sure that IS included in basic cable, just like TNT is...

    In October 2005, Versus elected not to provide NHL coverage to a number of distributors, including EchoStar (Dish Network) and Cablevision,
    both of which refused Comcast's request to place Versus on a much
    higher-penetration package. During this time, NHL coverage was blacked
    out on these systems, replaced with other programming. It was believed
    that the reason behind these blackouts had to do with a penalty fee that
    Comcast would have had to pay the NHL if they did not significantly
    increase their distribution.<sup class="Template-Fact" style="white-space:nowrap;">[<span title="This claim needs references to reliable sources from April 2010">citation needed</span>]</sup></p>


    While Cablevision eventually came to an agreement making OLN/Versus
    available to any customer with digital cable, EchoStar retaliated by
    pulling OLN from its service; it was Dish Network's stance that few of
    its customers would be willing to have the channel if it meant raising
    rates. On April 24, 2006, the same date that OLN announced the
    late-September name change to Versus, Dish Network and OLN reached a
    long term agreement to restore the channel.</p>


    At the beginning of September 2009, DirecTV
    pulled Versus from its lineup, as it was unable to reach terms on a
    rate increase demanded by Comcast. In public statements (including a
    message shown on the channel which formerly carried Versus), DirecTV
    scolded Comcast for its "unfair and outrageous demands", and considered
    the company to be "simply piggish" in its demands for higher rates, as
    it described Versus as "a paid programming and infomercial channel with occasional sporting events."<sup id="cite_ref-33" class="reference"><span>[</span>34<span>]</span></sup>
    On March 15, 2010 an agreement was reached between the sides and Versus
    returned to DirecTV's lineup. The channel was returned to its original
    package on the service, Choice Xtra.<sup id="cite_ref-resolution_34-0" class="reference"><span>[</span>35<span>]</span></sup></p>

    got that off wiki, i knew there was something up with versus i remember hearing about it not showing hockey games

    [/quote]Your point being.......

    Versus is no longer a station, its NBC Sports and they're in EVERY SINGLE MARKET. Would I have any point to bring up a failed NBA TV agreement?? The answer is NO

    You can keep reaching but the stars will always be in the sky sen
    [/quote]

    because u don't have one. They may of lost NBC but still picked up ABC.

    While also maintaining ESPN and TNT.

    To put it in perspective - hockey tried to start their own station because ESPN wouldn't give them a big deal in which they then had to sell a few years later

    theres no reaching - thats facts


    [/quote]ESPN/ABC offered them a sour deal, so they took a good deal with NBC, the same that the NBA did when they went from NBC to ABC, I still dont see your point

    You're reaching cause you're hating, its all good man, you can admit it

    You can keep reaching for those stars, but theyll always be in the sky

    now ur just tlaking out of ur ***

    NBA ON NBC: "When NBC Sports' contract with the NBA expired in 2002, the broadcast rights were passed to ABC, which began airing games the next season. NBC had made a four-year, $1.3 billion bid in the spring of 2002 to renew its NBA coverage, but the league instead made six-year deals worth $4 billion with ESPN, ABC and TNT.[7]"

    NHL ON ESPN: "Though the two are friends, Bettman had a tough message to deliver: Days
    earlier, ESPN told the league that it would make an aggressive bid on
    the NHL's media package. Bettman told Roberts that ESPN's planned bid of
    $160 million to $170 million per year would test NBC's and Versus'
    right-to-match clause, which several media executives described as the
    tightest such clause they had ever seen. The clause gave NBC the right
    to match any deal the NHL signed with another network"

    NHL ended up on settling on 10 years 2 bil deal

    dude this comparing Kias to Mercedes
    Fear the name, appreciate the game
