Pissing Off Viewers, One Sport at a Time

From WashingtonCaps.com, a note regarding tomorrow's Slug-fest:

Unfortunately Washington Capitals fans who live in Fairfax and Fredericksburg and who subscribe to Cox Communications cable will not be able to receive live television coverage of this Saturday’s Capitals game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Read the rest here. It's kind of amazing how this kind of thing keeps happening with local sports teams around the District and here's hoping a solution can be found soon. The Caps, like most NHL teams, are in no position to be fighting for viewers.

Speaking of cable and hockey and annoying stuff...anyone know when RCN will start carrying the NHL Network?? *sigh*

Will Cox customers get to watch the recorded game later? Comcast's "On Demand" is actually working this year. At least for the first 3 games. I think it only worked for about 3 games all of last season. I complained to Comcast last year - Of course the customer misservice people couldn't understand what I was talking about. Hope Cox gets their act together.

I believe what they're saying is Cox customers can catch the replay of the game on Comcast at 10:30...isn't that nice of them?
