    Regardless of who to blame, this is infuriating for customers. You think you have the package that meets your needs and then something changes like this. I still have Xfinity but was going to switch to YouTube TV. Unless I have it wrong this was announced on the day the plug was being pulled. So no time at all for people to prepare etc.

    This is something I would actually like seeing the government ask questions about. It shouldn't be near impossible to get what you want. Some regulation would be a good thing for this industry.

    I did read that it could be added back when Bruins and Celtics start up again but who knows. I am a big college hockey fan and with no fans allowed I was banking on a lot of games being on NESN. So this sucks for YouTube TV subscribers. I am just fed up with the entire industry.

    I really wish the Jacobs would negotiate a deal with NBCSN. They do a better job with local sports. Better personalities, more hard hitting sports talk, and also a better presentation package that isn't dated in 2002.

    I finally cut it last year,saved over $100 per month going to YouTube TV, it's an excellent service so I'm never going back to cable but that's me,losing NESN while inconvenient isn't the end of the world,look at all the preseason games we've watched through nefarious ways over the years,we'll be fine

    I was thinking about this last night.. this has to be a negotiating ploy while the NBA, MLB, and NHL are all on hold. Google can offer an unreasonable licensing fee to the RSN's and then strike before the NHL and NBA start in January, with an even higher cost. Or it's the other way around. The RSN's are playing Google knowing that no one is watching right now anyone.

    I don’t think so but all the Bruins games are covered by NESN with NHL tv . The only online option that I know of in Canada is through NHL tv .

    When Comcast comes to our area we are going back to cable, I am tired of the streaming. I have had four different streaming companies and it seems they all drop channels. Does anyone have Comcast and if so how is their internet?? Are they down a lot or very little?? We have Consolidated and we hate it, Comcast has started hooking up in our area so looking forward to that as this year there has not been much to look forward too.
