What the hell, I thought I'd actually see if I could stand watching a full game of college basketball, and CBS College sports is blacked out. I thought this crap was solved yesterday and it was only going to be blacked out in markets where CBS itself is going to show the matinee game, and I'm pretty damned sure I dont live in one of those markets.

Rep just tells me they are only showing it on MMM Channel 705....Complete BS. They blackout channel 613 so they can sell their $69 NCAA package.

So the guy from the technical department said that the blackout hasnt been lifted because my local CBS affiliate hasnt released it yet, even tho my local affiliate is showing a cheap tabloid magazine show instead of any basketball at the moment.

F*** CBS.

I saw yesterday's game in HD...Blackout today, as it should, it's on our CBS.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I am having the same trouble in Chicago viewing the game on 613. I just talked to a Directv operator and he told me the game would be shown on delay starting at 5:45 (cst) on 613. Our local CBS is showing Judge Judy right now, so there should be no blackout issues.

Local CBS has news on. Why am I paying for this channel and then they take it away from me for 2 hours the last two days?

I just checked and it's on the SD channel! Not sure why it's not in HD but at least it's on

Has anyone yelled at DirecTV on twitter about this crap? I woulda watched some basketball, but instead I'm watching some DVR'd Trailer Park Boys before hockey starts later.

Perhaps each CBS market has the right to have the game blacked out in its DMA??? It would be nice if D* or CBS would set the record straight.

Local affiliates get too much control over the DMAs access to national programming to begin with. If I want to tell me local affiliates to piss off andget my network content from somewhere else, I should have that right. The only purpose local affiliates should have is for local content.
