    Hi guys,
    Just moved to Portland after 6 years away in Raleigh, and found a rental in SE. Yesterday I signed up with DISH Network (through the PGE Connections) because the sales rep told me I can watch all the CSNNW Blazer games with their regional sports package (for an added $9). Now after looking around on-line I'm worried they lied to me...can someone clarify, are the Blazers really available outside of Comcast (I saw so many "I hate Comcast" thread titles on here over the years that I was looking for an alternative).
    Thanks so much. I don't know why it is so hard to found a clear answer anywhere else.

    I don't believe it is available on any Satellites. They probably got if confused with Root sports or the Pac12 channel.

    a big #$%@ no for Blazer games.

    comcast's fat cats back east dont give a flying f about fans, especially in Oregon. They haven't come to terms with the Pac12 yet either.

    I know Pac12 network is on something besides comcast. A co worker told me he was surprised to find the beavers game the other day.

    Oh man, then the DISH guy straight up lied to me. Sigh, I wonder if this is going to be a huge ordeal terminating my contract with DISH Network. What a pain in the ass.
    Thanks guys.

    Hmm, the DISH rep on my chat window is still claiming that the Blazers are available.

    Is Verizon Fios available where you are? Correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't the channel on it?

    I have heard nothing but good things about it, but we will never get it down here.

    Pac-12 Net can be seen on CSN and Dish, NOT Directv

    that isn't true. they said the same thing to my dad about 2 years ago, so he signed up for the sports packages. Then he found out he didn't get the channel. So they agreed to give him his money back.

    yeah, I think the way around is to use an out of area address as your biling address, another state preferably and then sign up for league pass, not totally sure but I remember a few guys on another Blazer forum having that work for them. I think that would work on Dish or Direct but NOT cable.

    Clicking the link it says: "there are no national broadcasts of this show"

    Which means, you only get to see the few Nationally televised games

    Was referring to Dish/DirectTV

    in response they said:

    Ronaldo (ID: APH): It is available with DISH on channel number 5435.
    Ronaldo (ID: APH): Which is included with Multi sports package $9/month.
    Ronaldo (ID: APH): I see that your account also has Multi sports package.
    Ronaldo (ID: APH): Please do not worry, you will surely get it.
