I would like to check with some of you others who are on the outside of the SD Padres area who also subscribe to the SportsPak like myself. At this time are you getting blacked out of the FS SD channel? This makes no sense. The last I understood pre season games are NOT subject to blackout. I am getting a not subscribed message on my screen. What about you?

I am getting "not subscribed". Doesn't make sense since this is the 1st Spring Training game that had been blacked out.

Channel 693 has the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers game on but 694 is blacked out. Channel 213 has the Giants and Dodgers game on also the exact same game 693 is showing but The Padres are blacked out. Yeah I thought that preseason games were never suppose to be blacked out. Don't understand why but it is.

I got the same message. Could it be that since Good Ole Bud has yet to sign off on the deal it can't be shown out of market?!

What good is a call back on Tuesday? This isn't cricket where matches can go on for days, this is baseball. The game ended Saturday night around 10p (MST).

1) It might help them not make the same mistake again with the next pre-season game.
2) It might get you a credit or something or a free ppv movie if you ask for it.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

That's exactly what I had. Probably DTV just screwed up. No big deal its just preseason.

No matter what package you may have, it will be on only for those in the Padres market.

Happy to be wrong in this case!:) Pre-season games should never be blacked out. There is no logical reason!
