I am appealing to all Waterbury area MLB baseball fans, in particular Yankees, Mets and Red Sox. We should all be concerned about what Comcast (and Telemedia before them) has done and continues to do to Sox fans. Yankees fans should know what all Mets and Red Sox fans already know, it could just as easily be the YES Network that is banned from the cable lineup. Remember Yankee fans, as much as we all love a good Yankee - Red Sox battle, that is not what this is about. This is about our ONLY local cable company providing for all of its customers. If you are not familiar with the issue, this is it in a nut shell. Nationally broadcast games are often Blocked because the Waterbury area is considered by Major League Baseball to be in the Red Sox broadcast region, but on the other hand Comcast in Waterbury refuses to offer the Red Sox channel (NESN) because they do not feel enough Sox fans exist in the area. For what ever reason, Comcast has not offered NESN again this year, thus Sox fans can not watch games unless they leave Comcast and obtain a satellite dish. Manny have done just that but the problem is, many more fans do not have that option due to regulations in their communities preventing it or just plain not being able to obtain a signal due to their geographical location or other reception issues.. Regional cable companies should make all regional programming available, including sports channels. I am not asking for a hand out, charge those who want the service, but offer it. I propose that all MLB fans in the area bond together via petitions and demand that Waterbury area Comcast provide programming for all three area MLB teams that exist in their customer base. Until this happens I proclaim the Waterbury area to be THE RED SOXLESS NATION! Please sign below if you support our efforts:

Joe, United States7 years ago Comments: I live in Danbury, and I am sick and tired of hearing how we can't get NESN in Fairfield County. Change the damn rules already, too many Sox fans get ignored because of the worthless yankees and YES network. Once again I had to buy Extra Innings, which broadcast NESN HD in SD, what a waste!
Richard J. Sanzo, United States7 years ago Comments: Not only can I not get Red Sox games, but I am a Boston College alumni and will miss weekly BC Sports updates carried on NESN. Give me NESN in HD like the town next to me!!! (Bristol)
