This happened with a different game last month, now it's happening again. MLB Network HD is being blacked out here in Chicago even though they're showing Angels @ Yankees. The SD feed is working fine, and the HD feed was fine until just a little while ago.

They really need to be more careful with their blackouts.

This is getting ridiculous. MLB Network's coverage of the Cubs game ended 8 minutes ago, and MLB Network is STILL blacked out on DirecTV. Isn't there supposed to be someone over at D* who's watching the feed and is supposed to turn off the blackout as soon as the game coverage ends?

EDIT: They finally removed the blackout after 15 minutes. Awesome job, D*!

The signals come from the MLB network, D* has no control over it.

It just happened again. After the White Sox game on channel 213 finished up, channel 214 was shut off, but 213 was left blacked out for an additional 10 minutes before finally being turned on. Obviously since all live game coverage was over and MLB Tonight had already started, the blackout should have been lifted.

So you're saying this is MLB Network's failure to shut off the blackout?
