About CSS Network

CSS is a 24-hour regional sports network serving approximately 5.7 million cable subscribers across twelve southeastern states. Launched in 1999, the network is a partnership between Comcast Corporation and Charter Communications. CSS carries a full slate of college sports programming including over 50 live football games, 110 college football replay games, more than 200 men's and women's live college basketball games and 50 live baseball games, as well as a comprehensive mix of sports news and in-depth sports analysis geared toward fans in the Southeast.

This should be interesting since their SD production quality is generally crap at best, even the stuff they rebroadcast from ESPN+ or other Comcast Sportsnets looks way worse than on other channels. Hopefully this will lead to some HD broadcasts of their college football and basketball next season...
