    Not just CLE. We in Philly don't get local games either.

    Why should I have to. Why not just open the FSCinn feed or put it on an alternate channel. They do that for other teams all the time. I am in there home territory. I shouldn't need the sports pack.

    We have to get the SportsPack to get the Reds. Cable doesn't get them at all.

    DirecTv should be able to show both in Cleveland. This isn't 1990

    they could but priority number 1 is profit so they want you to pay extra for the sports pack. Take it up with retention if you don't like it and maybe they will give it to you free for 3 months or something

    You can usually get $10/month off the sports pack just for asking for it.

    The other night, the Monsters game was on FSN Ohio (in glorious SD), when it suddenly disappeared and the Blue Jackets game popped on.

    FSN Ohio is a joke. I can only hope that the issues with Cavs/Jackets, no full-time HD, and other issues get ironed out with the STO buyout.

    Don`t forget, people in Cinci also lose Jackets/Cavs games to U. of Cinci basketball sometimes.

    But you`re also not paying the extra couple of dollars per mo. to get the programming.

    You could be like me and many other people in CT(outside of Fairfield county)... We are in the NY territory for the Rangers and Knicks but because either Directv is too cheap to pay or MSG is asking too much to include our zipcodes in their contract with MSG, we get blacked out of the Ranger and Knicks.

    It's kind of a slap in the face to the people in the excluded zip codes.

    wouldnt there be an alternate channel (besides 661) that shows it?
    I know as example the Wild are shown in both MN & WI. When the Bucks play 669-1 (FS Wisco) gets the bucks game and the Wild feed is on an alternate channel (like 680)

    I hate to state the obvious but did you try and tune to 661-1 (FSN Cincy?)

    I know you dont get the station normally but maybe they opened it up just for the game.

    Call up. Politely explained the situation and got the sports pack for $3 a month for a year.
