    Yeah i pay for Comcast and have been pretty happy. Easy to navigate. I get all the apps I want like Netflix and Disney and Peacock as well as You Tube.
    Cost with Internet is about $130 a month for everything. Never a problem and if there is they fix it pretty quick.
    I have 4 TV's in the house with one in the kids room and one in the spare room that only do apps. I also have a exercise bike (Peloton) that is hooked up to the internet and App systems.

    There were software updates for the de-scrambling cards that would get it working again. Dudes were making doing that.

    Consumers minds have changed.

    Blazers are antiquated in their delivery of that product.

    It's common sense and keeping with the times. Its really not that hard to understand.

    No, Dish did - but they dropped it two weeks ago and look unlikely to bring it back.

    Is there any team in the league that does their own streaming? Yes it would be cool if the Blazers were first but I'm guessing the $$ upfront is pretty large to undertake something like that. Add in that I doubt Jody wants anything to do with spending money to make money at this point, it seems like she's going to sell as soon as possible, so it would make sense that she took the biggest offer she could and give a middle finger to any fan that might get screwed over this.

    so you just want options without thinking about the logistics.

    What channel would they sign with? The one that shut down and wouldn’t have been able to pay the blaZers anything close to what root did? And you think that makes sense business wise (the blazers are a business first) because you and some other fans hate Comcast?

    People think the blazers got other offers? From who? Fox12? Lol

    we had two regional sports channels and one went under. Sooooo what does that leave the blazers? Sign with the other one....
