Bill Danielswho held a minority ownership interest in both franchises. Unlike many of the regional sports networks in operation at the time of Prime Ticket's launch, the channel was and still is structured as a basic cable channel, instead of a premium service. Its original general offices were located in a small office building located across the street from the Great Western Forum in Inglewood.

NBC Sports Chicago has chosen to block access to its channel from its own viewers, and are making unreasonable demands.
These demands come after NBC Sports Chicago announced it would lose the Cubs in October, as the team moves towards plans to start its own cable television channel with Sinclair Broadcast Group in NBC Sports Chicago is also demanding a minimum number of subscribers, reducing their own viewers choice.
The Regional Sports Networks business model is broken, and now NBC Sports Chicago is looking to recoup the hefty sums they pay the teams they carry after their loss of their most popular content, the Cubs.
NBC Sports Chicago knows live sports are important to our viewers and therefore are holding their channel hostage as a negotiation tactic to force TV providers, like DISH, to cave to their demands. We at DISH are sick of these demands that put you, the customer, in the middle.
We are fighting on your behalf to have the best content at a fair price. With the highest cost for DISH being the cost of programming, it is important for us to continue to keep that cost fair so that it is not exorbitantly reflected into your bill.
Thank you for your patience and for being a DISH customer. Make your voice heard.
