Controversy

Like other local cable networks in the United States, CN8 is not available on satellite systems, particularly DirecTV and Dish Network. CN8, along with similar networks like NY1 and News 12, was created to add value to cable networks over satellite systems. A standard DirecTV satellite dish with 1 LNB on a roof DirecTV (trademarked as DIRECTV) is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service based in El Segundo, California, USA, that transmits digital satellite television and audio to households in the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America except for Mexico. ... DISH Network is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service that provides satellite television and audio programming to households and businesses in the United States, owned by parent company EchoStar Communications Corporation. ... NY1 (pronounced New York One) is a twenty-four hour news channel available exclusively to over two million cable television customers within the five boroughs of New York City, nearby Bergen County, New Jersey, Mount Vernon in Westchester County as well as Time Warner Cable systems throughout New York State. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


The area where this decision raises the most controversy is with sports. Lawmakers have put pressure on Comcast to make the sports contents that they cover, particularly on sister network CSN Philadelphia, available to satellite operators. CN8 is not available on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, which covers many sporting events, because their internal cable system is satellite based. Comcast SportsNet (or CSN) is a group of four regional sports networks. ... This article is about the private Ivy League university in Philadelphia. ...


Another controversy took place when CN8 expanded to New England. At the time, Comcast had a studio in Brookline, Massachusetts that was shared by the company for local-origination programming, and Brookline Access Television (BAT), the local public-access cable channel in that town. BAT was kicked out of that studio, and it resulted in Comcast getting bad publicity in a local newspaper. Eventually, BAT built its own separate studio elsewhere in the town while the former studio shared by Comcast and BAT is now used full-time by CN8, the major (but not the only) studio facility used by CN8 in New England.
