DirectTV, ATT U-Verse file to acquire Comcast SportsNet Houston
HOUSTON, TX – In an 11th-hour court filing, DirectTV and AT&T U-Verse burned the midnight oil, filing paperwork to potentially buy the network currently known as Comcast SportsNet Houston.
And just what does this mean for Houstonians? Well nobody knows for sure yet, but it stands to reason that the network would become one of DirectTV’s regional sports networks, known as “Root Sports.”
Finally, Astros and Rockets games could be seen by subscribers to not only Comcast, but also AT&T U-Verse and DirectTV too! Masochistic sports fanatics might finally be able to veg out in front of an Astros game from the comfort of their own living room couch.
