From what I've read people in the CR area are supposed to get CSN-C on April 1st. It's only the Des Moines area that gets stuck without Cubs games
Not really sure it makes sense but it's what I read in the gazette a few weeks back...
Right now Mediacom in the QCA is still carrying CSN. Hopefully it stays that way. CR has McLeod for cable too, so even if Mediacom dropped CSN there'd at least be another cable provider.
I really don't want dish plus I don't know how well that would work anyway. My neighborhood is full of overgrown oak trees. Any decent vantage point for a dish will probably have partial obstruction from them.
