    Could be interesting. I know Comcast owns a local sports channel (not an RSN) in Michigan, could be interesting to see where that goes

    Note that this is possible because KNTV is an NBC O & O (Owned and Operated station).

    It is much less likely that an independently owned network affiliate would outsource it's sports coverage.

    Here is a list of the Comcast/NBC O&O stations:

    NBC

    * Chicago: WMAQ-TV (channel 5)
    * Fort Worth: KXAS-TV (channel 5)1
    * Los Angeles: KNBC (channel 4)
    * Miami: WTVJ (channel 6)
    * New Britain, Connecticut: WVIT (channel 30)
    * New York City: WNBC (channel 4)
    * Philadelphia: WCAU-TV (channel 10)
    * San Diego: KNSD (channel 39)(1)
    * San Jose, California: KNTV (channel 11)
    * Washington, D.C.: WRC-TV (channel 4)

    (1)76% owned by NBC Universal while 24% owned by LIN Television.

    Of these, note that Comcast owns RSNs in Chicago, Philly, the Bay Area, and DC - making them likely candidates.

    No where. Comparing a CSN to what that channel you guys have that has high school games or whatever is pretty silly.

    it only operates in northern and central Michigan... the idea was that they could produce local sports news in that area, not that they were a RSN and capable of doing what a CSN could.
