JamesCraven Posted February 17, 2005 Share Posted February 17, 2005 "There's still a few around...and a few more starting up."MSG's still there, broadcasting the cruddy Knicks and (when they're playing) the cruddier Rangers and the Mets every once in a blue moon too...I know Sunshine is still in business down in FL, and there's Turner South down in ATL."Unfortunately, from what some friends of mine with the dish told me, it seems that Empire folded up shop as well....kinda sad seeing they always had Amerks games on there when the Sabes were off."I know the Avs & Nuggs were to launch a new network soon (dunno if they did or not...I think it's supposed to be called Altitude) and the Bobcats have their own channel as well (don't remember the name of it, all I know is that the Canes were gonna be on there too)...and in 2006, the Mets are launching their own channel (just to get out from under the thumb of the Dolan Empire...which is a VERY good thing, IMO)..."To be honest, I think there's a new player emerging in the cable sports channel market to challenge FOX and ESPN...that would be Comcast. They already have the Philly & DC markets and just added Chicago as well." Well, I do not know what's going on with Empire Sports, but Comcast started another channel in Sacramento with the Kings, Sports South is now run by Fox Sports Net , and Sunshine is now called Sun Sports, and owned by Fox.
