On Saturday Nov, 7th the Oregon/Stanford game was to be shown on FSNNorthwest here in Portland, OR. On the "real" FSNNW channel they were showing a Washington school's game instead. On channel 688, which is apparently an FSNNW "alternate" they were showing the Oregon game but only in SD and it looked terrible! On channel 688-1 which is apparently an FSNNW-HD "alternate" they were showing nothing but a DirecTV logo and playing music. Needless to say this was INFURIATING. If I had Comcast cable or Verizon Fios I could have watched the game in HD. If I lived in a different market I could have seen the game in HD since, FSNW and FSNAZ were showing the game in HD. But here in OREGON we couldn't watch the Oregon game in HD on DirecTV. This is a major failure on the part of DirecTV. I was extremely unhappy about it and spent the entire first quarter on the phone with CSRs who couldnt do anything to fix it. I tried to remain calm as I explained to two different CSRs and two different Techs the problem but they just didnt get it. They kept insisting it was blackout issues etc. NO. It wasnt. It was your bad.
