I sent an e-mail to DirecTV about 721 errors I get on the RSNs in my Premier Package. I now understand why I get the 721s. Let me state that while I don't like the results I am not upset with DirecTV. They have to abide by the blackout restrictions imposed upon them. Here is what I sent: I have been a Premier customer for quite a while. One of the things that drew me to the Premier Tier was access to all the regional sports networks. I have noticed that often I get a 721 message when I attempt to access a sporting event in primetime. When the sporting event is over, the 721 message goes away. I don't understand this. Here is their response. Thanks for writing and for letting us know your concern about the 721 message you're getting when you attempt to access a sporting event in primetime. I apologize for the confusion this issue has caused. I see that you've been with us a while. I would like you to know that we recognize you as a valued and loyal customer, and we certainly want you to be happy with our service. I appreciate the opportunity to assist you today. As you already know, the Premier Package includes the Sports Pack, which offers the Regional Sports Networks all over the country. These Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) from across the nation show professional, college, and both domestic and international amateur sports (such as soccer, tennis, boxing, golf, rugby, winter sports, etc.), as well as coaches shows and other specialized programming. Based on your zip code, you have been assigned FSN Cincinnati (Ch. 638) as your local RSN. You are authorized to view the pro and college games shown on that channel. Due to contractual broadcast rights between the networks and the leagues, those who live outside of your area are not authorized to view the same games. On the other hand; for the other RSNs, since you're outside of their market area, you are not authorized to view the pro and college games shown on that channel. This is the reason why you're getting the 721 message during a sporting event in primetime in some of the Regional Sports Networks. For example, when a network such as MSG purchases the rights from the NBA to broadcast a Knicks game, they pay a fee and broadcast it to the New York City market only. Therefore, we can only allow customers within that market to view the pro games on that channel. When a national network such as TNT broadcasts an NBA game, they have paid a significantly higher fee because they are broadcasting to the entire nation. The fee is much higher due to the advertisement potential. Because of fans like you who have interest in viewing teams from outside of your home market, the leagues have created professional sports subscriptions such as the NBA LEAGUE PASS and NFL SUNDAY TICKET.
