    Is anyone else having trouble watching 210, 211, or 214?

    DirecTVs CSR's seem to be clueless, unfortunately. One of my DVRs would allow me to order it but I shouldnt have to pay for the womens games!?!

    EDIT:
    I apologize, I seem to be not very detail oriented because im on the phone.
    In an attempt to watch the NCAA Womens games on this eveing on channel 210, 211, or 214, I get PPV options.
    On my R15, I have the option to order the games, on my HR20's, I get 733 (no phone line) or 736, etc.

    The games aren't listed for purchase on DirecTV.com, and the one that is listed on 723 is listed TBA.
    Since when did Womens basketball games become PPVs?

    Only if you sub to Full Court, if one of the games is in your state or on their map, you would probably get it, I can watch the Vandy game on 216 because I'm in Tennessee, everything else is blacked out, except the
    main ESPN SD and HD channel.

    Edit: I see you edited your post while I was typing, I think you can buy a one day(maybe one weekend pkg for the women's games), but not positive, of course I've never had anything other than Full Court, so I'm not sure what kind of hoops need to be jumped through.

    Yea... After talking with an agent for 30 minutes, I got on with a supe who told me that.


    However, they also both claimed that I could order the PPV via my remote on my R15 (being my primary receiver), and since the other receivers were mirrored off it, that I could watch the game on all the receivers. Since it wasnt available on DirecTV.com or in their system

    After tomorrow, all the games will be available(spaced out timewise, with little if any overlap) and in HD on either ESPN-HD or ESPN2-HD.

    Hi guys, Christine here over at ESPN. Hope I can help you. All games are available nationwide on ESPN360.com - ask your provider if you have access, it's free - and to subscribers of ESPN Full Court. If you want to watch your local regionalized game in its entirety, you must tune to your regular standard definition channel if you have cable. If you're subscribed to satellite you'll need to go to the alternate channel. Our maps on espn.com should provide answers to any other question. Just go to espn.com and type 'maps' into the search box. Enjoy the game!

    Unless they changed it, only the receiver that orders the PPV via the remote will be able to watch it. If ordered online then all receivers on the account can watch.

    Deet dee dee CSRs and the stories they tell their stupervisors.

    FWIW, you can also call DirecTV and have them order a PPV for you (and for a $5 fee), and they will be on all the receivers on the account.
