No exact number. Maybe 6 or 5 in the start of the season. The games are moved over to CN8 which is CURRENTLY exclusive to comcast and has always been a "roll-over" channel for Philly Sports.
Being a Phillies Fan myself, I want to see every phillies game every night...but these missed games are not enough to make me go back to comcast (due to the overall better picture quality, etc other personal reasons).
We have both Comcast Sportsnet in SD and HD, aswell as WPHL17 in SD and HD.
I feel your pain and hope that CharlesH can help you get those Philly sports broadcasts. Up here in central NJ - zip code 08536 (Princeton area) - I am 43.75 miles from home plate at Citizens Bank Park according to Google Earth - just a shade more than the 38.78 miles your police department's headquarters in Sadsbury Township, PA is from the ball park. But those extra 4.97 miles are what is keeping me from the Phillies, Eagles and Flyers. And with football about to start this is starting to look like an ugly fall for me. The crazy thing is Comcast delivers those Philly channels righ here on my street and if I still had an old fasion over the air antenna on my roof I could tune in to the games that way, too.
Verizon, please, why is a brand new 21st century product like FIOS unable to keep up with last century's copper wire and roof antennas?
