In the Fall of 2008, Comcast Corporation announced that CN8 would be restructured into two more locally focused networks in the Philadelphia and DC areas. The Comcast Network serves local viewers with more targeted sports programming and public affairs. The network was launched on January 6, 2009.
I don't have Comcast Cable, how can I get The Comcast Network?
The Comcast Network is available to every TV distributor - cable, satellite and telco - that serves viewers in the network's territory [roughly defined as the Greater Philadelphia area, including Eastern & Central PA, South NJ and Delaware, subject to league rules and restrictions]. Please contact your TV provider to request that the network be added to your lineup.

Flyers games are blacked out in the following areas in Pennsylvania because of National Hockey League rules regarding home team markets:
Huntingdon, Lewistown, Lykens, Mount Union, Philipsburg, State College
