This has been an ongoing bug up my butt since we 1st got DirecTV in 7/2000. Since I live in ''Comcast Country'', I don't get a local sports channel. I've gone round & round w/ DirecTV about the fact that everyone else in the country is getting one more channel for the same price I pay. The response I get is 'oh well'. I've also repeatedly requested that, since they have the power, I would like an out of market channel to replace the missing local sports (husband would LOVE if I could manage to get YES). Anyone else in the Philadelphia market have any luck getting anywhere?
