Comcast is shuttering Detroit-area RSN Comcast Local Feb 28. The 24-hour net launched in ’04, is available to approx 1.3mln MI subs, and features content from the Big Ten and MAC conferences, the Arena Football League and local high schools. The MSO is working with partners to potentially transfer some of the content to other nets, said a spokesman. Sources say the net could also emerge later this year under a new name. — A former Cox employee was sentenced for hacking the MSO’s computer and telecom system and shutting down services in TX, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Cox restored service within hours, according to the US States Atty for GA’s Northern District. William Bryant, 38, of Norcross, GA, was sentenced to 5 months in prison and 5 months of confinement, 200 hours of community service and $15, 470 in restitution by US District Judge Thomas Thrash. Bryant pleaded guilty to the charges in Sept.
