    sigma - DirecTV is our provider, it's their job to have this figured out with whomever they get the product from not ours.

    They (Dirertv) and InDemand can't provide it if the MLB says no.

    don't cuss out any phone rep - they have every right to hang up on you if you do so.

    Please DO write a well-thought out letter.

    Thats great proof man.. Again, so me some evidence this isn't DTV Problem. Of course there are games on MLB TV. They own baseball rights. That doesn't mean MLB has full blame on why DTV isn't showing the games.

    Another false pitch by DTV.

    Link to what? To the FACT that no one has the games except local and MLB.tv which is owned by MLB?

    Show me a link that says its MLB fault that the games are blacked out today.. First we went from ESPN's fault to MLB's fault..

    Did DTV contact MLB about this?

    Then, why isn't InDemand showing the games? Directv has zero to do with InDemand. By your "logic", who's problem is it that Fios/TWC/Comcast/Cox/etc don't have the games? Directv's right? :rolleyes:

    Well I have a hard time believing that DirecTV & Indemand randomly picked today to not show west coast games. obviously MLB had something to do with it, DirecTV & Indemand cannot just ignore MLB's blackout requests, they would get in trouble w/the league.

    It's nobody's "fault". It is part of the contract between MLB and ESPN.

    You mean, "I have no argument that makes sense, so I'll say you're a Directv defender, Sigma."

    Right.. It means DTV continues to lie to their subscribers and their CSR have no clue.. Company is nothing like it was a few years ago and its getting worst.

    If you wanna believe this was 100% MLB fault, then I don't know what to tell you. Again to you, DTV never does wrong.

    I think we all understand that rule pretty clearly. The games that were blacked out started at 3 PM ET and 4 PM Eastern.
