I live in Central Indiana. With the sports pack, I'm covered by: Fox-Cincinnati, Fox-Midwest and CSN-Chicago Prior to this season, I've always received the Chicago Blackhawks as my local NHL team and, in spite of fact that the St. Louis Blues games were available to me via cable through Fox-Midwest locally, they were blacked out on FSW-MW via DirecTV. This year, however, I've noticed that the Blues games ARE available live. But so still are the Blackhawk games. I was always under the impression that in areas like mine, where a particular team is not actually a local, per se, that only one NHL team was the claimant for the area. Have I been wrong about this? A couple of additional things; the Indiana Pacers are, of course, my local NBA team, and are broadcast to me live on FOX-MW. Chicago Bulls games, via CSN-Chicago, are blacked out. Further, even though the Columbus Blue Jackets are occasionally, I believe, broadcast also on Fox-Cincinnati, those games are still blacked out, which would seem to conflict with the whole Blues/Blackhawks reception. While I'm a hardcore baseball fan and understand, sadly, the circus that is the current MLB policy on blackouts, I'm only a casual hockey/basketball fan. But I also thought the NHL/NBA territory policies were much more straightforward. Could anyone shed some light on this? I would appreciate any insight!
