    Add me to the list. Surely this is something that should have been all lined up and tested out before today?

    I was on the phone with them as well and the supprot person I talked to actually got the message as she was troubleshooting that there was a known issue with this and they are attempting to resolve. So they now are aware via the CSRs that the issue is nationwide.

    Yeah that's definitely incorrect. Every Premier League game is being broadcast in HD this season.

    I really hate the customer support crap like this. I WILL be calling back later in the day to complain heartily once they get the match on and it's proof that I was lied to.

    Ha, after the customer service person gave me the excuse that not all games will be in HD on that channel, it's magically on. The sound is kind of stuttering, but it beats the 721 error.

    621-1 does not look as good as FSC, the sound is choppy too.

    I can answer. They like to fob people off with any excuse to get them off the phone.

    "We have a known problem and are working on it. Keep checking back on the channel", would have gotten me off the phone. :)

    They apologized profusely, and the person I just talked to is going to discuss it with her supervisor. That's all I can ask.

    I just checked. I have sports pack and don't subscribe to FSC+. I am also getting "Channel not purchased" on 621 and I am getting the game on 621-1.

    It's on here, without a FSC+ subscription. Just another reason D* should do away with charging $15.95 for this channel.
