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.

My ST is already paid, but after this year you'll see me steal cable before paying DTV for ST....
You might want to PM Greg Herzig. He called DTV and they offered to refund his money and gave him a week to decide.

Just an FYI

Games carried by the "local" (Shreveport) Fox and CBS affiliates were not blacked out the past 2 seasons. They were blacked out yesterday.

Huh. So, after testing it out they decided that only X% of consumers were pissed, so it was a good idea to spread it nationwide...

Nope, doesn't bother me. DTV is finishing up the last of the small markets that they are going to do.

It is sad that DirectTV Sunday Ticket people get stuck when local companies feel the urge to change their mind. Their really needs to be something that forces the local carriers to make DTV aware of any changes. The NFL has some really goofy rules.

Did you go to the linked thread? From some of the posts I gather it is not Directv's decision. It is Fox, CBS and the NFL doing it. I just hope it doesn't kill the Ticket altogether.

It makes the Sunday ticket irrelevant. There is no point in having it any longer.

Not only are the "local" stations in my area forcing DTV to block out the Chiefs and Rams games, but since I get east and west coast feeds (due to NOT being able to recieve local stations) those games are ALSO blacked out.

That's 6 games blacked out. They pretty much treat me like I live in Central Missouri, The East coast, AND the west coast all at one time.

I really don't care as I'm a) Not a DTV subscriber, and b) not a ST subscriber. I'm just here to make smartass comments.

It will be especially bad as local affiliates not in a team's immediate market shuffle their offering at the last minute.

Like that Iowa television station that based what it carried each week on a website poll. One could assume that the NFL and/or DirecTV will just black out the featured network game, and if the affiliate chooses to show something else, the viewers who wanted to watch that game are screwed.

You might want to go to that link and read some of the posts. Some of those guys have suggestions for cases like yours. You may qualify for a waiver that would put things back to normal.
