Yeah what they're asking is pretty ridiculous... FSSD is justifying the price increase by claiming that they're a round-the-clock sports channel while what TWC and the rest were getting before was a channel that basically only showed Padres games and little else. However, their round-the-clock claim is suspect because they're just broadcasting the feed from Fox Sports Primeticket, a LA based RSN that U-verse, Dish, and TWC already carry. Cox did not carry this LA based RSN, which is why they were willing to strike a deal. As far as I know, DirecTV's carriage agreement with FSSD only covers live events, meaning that they will air Padres games, but black out the channel the rest of the time.
