I May Have Found The Secret To Getting SportsNet LA

It's been well documented, both here and on Twitter, that I am an AT&T UVerse subscriber. UVerse, of course, does not carry SportsNet LA yet. I don't live in an area where I have the option of switching to Time Warner Cable (and I'm not sure I'd want to even if I could), so I'm left with no choice but to request the channel over and over.

I've gone through the usual means: INeedMyDodgers.com (I guess I didn't win the season tickets.), UVerse's channel request survey, even good old hashtags.

But last night, I was on a chat with a UVerse rep for a different issue (I've been having problems with slow internet), so I thought I'd take a shot at another approach.


There you have it! If/when SportsNet LA shows up in UVerse's lineup in the next few days, you'll all have my main man(?) Karthik to thank. Who else has the power to "cascade" requests to "higher level?"

Though, I think his tech support advice is a tad suspect...


Leaving me with a stack of routers? What do I do next, Karthik? WHAT DO I DO NEXT???

OK, so it's not just me. I'm supposed to be getting 18 mb , but rarely get above 8. If'm streaming something, and anyone else does anything on the wi-fi, instant drop in quality.

Now you have me worried that Karthik can't solve all my problems.

Can you patch the routers together and make one bad-ass super router?

Have you tried pouring beer on the router????? That often gets me going.

Cascade means fall. How can he cascade something to a higher level? Is he M.C. Escher?

Pouring beer into me makes me not worry about the problem so much.

I think Karthik and Vma have something going on.
