DirectTV Blockout

tried to watch my MSU Spartans who eventually got murdered on DirectTVs channel 8 fox sports

blacked out and claims the local tv company wants double the fee from before and that they are sticking it to the customer

sorry I beg to differ

here is a satellite dish company that prides itself on broadcasting all the games via NFL ticket and can't even get you the local game

looks like I will send them a letter
have one week to get your deal together then I'm canceling

glad I never upgraded to a bigger dvr as my contract didn't get extended

the terk high power digital antenna looks good
just can't dvr it, start late and skip the commercials and halftime
dread Budweiser and local Ford mafia crap

Re: DirectTV Blockout

I blame WVUE actually. Bad time to haggle with DirecTV over wanting more money. And being owned by Benson.. don't get me started. I may be listening to the game instead. Is it really 2014?

Re: DirectTV Blockout

If you're in the Louisiana market for Direct TV, the game will be broadcast on channel 705 today. They're giving everyone a free day of NFL service so they don't lose all their customers through the negotiations... blah blah.

Read it on facebook.

Money is driving everything the NFL touches anymore. Sickening.

It said unavailable on 705 for me, but it was on the WXXV? Shouldn't it have been on both with the Sunday Ticket?
