Here we go again live in Northeast PA go to turn on the Wizards at 76ers game. The game is blacked out. Dish network does not offer CSN Philly local cable companies don't offer CSN Philly how can the game be blacked out:confused: This is my question I'm a big Knicks fan will all the New York games be blacked out as well due to where I live.

The blackouts depend on who owns the rights to a specific game. You can check about a week ahead of time to using Game Finder, to see if a game is going to be blacked out in your area. Here is a link to the Game Finder tool. The only information needed to check is your zip code.

The only Knicks games that'll get blocked are when they play the Sixers.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Unfortunately not being able to receive a channel is not reason to lift a blackout. if you visit a local place that can get may be your only option to view the game.

You need cable to watch Sixers gems in NEPA.

Quite a few providers carry Comcast SportsNet in NEPA. Comcast is up un Scranton, but Service Electric, Blue Ridge, Adams Cable, and MetroCast carry it as well.

And they're all non-competing cable providers. I'm very familiar with Service Electric, they're the only provider in northwest New Jersey.

The one odd thing about Dish Network is they don't offer duel feeds for their league pass games last year I had Direct TV and they had both home and away feeds for many of their games which prevented the 76ers blackout.
