Cable sports channels get your money, one way or another

Northeast Ohio has two regional sports networks. Never mind that it only needs one. Here's the fall preview for the two channels:

- SportsTime Ohio: Nothing once the Indians' season is over.
- Fox Sports Ohio: Nothing until the NBA season starts.

Yes, they show some college football and basketball games from other parts of the country, and STO has the contract for the high school football playoffs. But does either channel have programming that you'd pay a premium for each month? Does it have any appointment-viewing shows?

Both of those channels are on most systems' basic cable package. So you're stuck paying for them, whether you watch them or not.
