AT&T Broadband makes NESN basic

According to today's Herald and Globe, at long last,
AT&T Broadband has added New Eng. Sports Network (Red
Sox, Bruins, PawSox) to its basic lineup. In most
the channel will be added to basic on July 1;
Aug. 1 in some towns.

Previously, it cost $10/month to get NESN
as a premium channel but lately their
subscriber base has gone down; now everyone
who gets the basic tier, whether they like
NESN or not, will wind up paying $1.49 a month extra
to subsidize it being "free"
(or at least "part of the basic package").
Supposedly NESN was the last such regional
sports network to get onto basic cable.
