If you want LOTS of info on the recent blackout changes go to DBSTalk.com. There are at least two threads there discussing it. It is WAY too lengthy to cut and paste. It is in the Direct TV General discussion forum.

There were a lot of questions yesterday. I thought I'd run this by again.

What did they say about it in a nutshell? I noticed yesterday that the Vikes game was blacked out, although it was on my local cable anyways. If they ever black out a Chiefs game, there will be hell to pay.

DTV knew going in this would happen and made no effort to change their price or pass on this info to the customer.

My ST is already paid, but after this year you'll see me steal cable before paying DTV for ST....

Hey Skip, if I have to get a second dish for local channels, is there a way to get you involved or would it even be worth your while?

If I remember correctly, they did this last year too. They will "black out" the game on the Sunday Ticket channels (700s) if it is being shown locally in your area.

If you get local channels from DirecTV, there should be no problem...you just watch the game on your local channel.

Am I missing something other than the fact that it sucks for people who don't get local channels from DirecTV?

It sucks for those of us that don't get local channels.

They did. Hence my confusion at the shock and outrage this year.

They didn't in my broadcast area. There were possibly some regional variances.

They didn't. They expanded the black out areas as well.

I had every game, every sunday last year. No blackouts.

Must have been. I wonder if its universal this year. Wonder how many consecutive years I'm gonna witness the Week 1, "Why the hell is this blacked out? It wasn't like this last year." stuff. Wonder why they didn't do it to everybody all at the same time.

I remember week 1 last year the Chiefs game was originally scheduled to be on broadcast in Phoenix. But, I guess the local affiliate changed their mind or something. Some other game was on broadcast, and the Chiefs game was blacked out on the ST channel. No Chiefs anywhere. That sucked.

They did not blackout games in my broadcast area either.

Local channels are supposedly available from DTV, but I can't pick up the sattelite that runs these because of some stupid trees. So if I want to watch a game shown locally, I have to use the broadcast TV, which is fuzzy at best.

I'm not sure yet. I'll let you know. You might want to go to the linked thread. There is another thread on there pertaining to Directv 5 satellite. It has Springfield listed as due for locals on the 28th of this month I believe it was.

All which shows how DirectTV is trying to catch up to cable. Cable has been showing local channels for years. (watching Skip's head explode)
