Im looking at the freeview site for this year & all show 4 days for hbo which was the subject.


These sites?

http://www.freepreview.tv/tag/directv

http://news.directv....eptember-14-16/

http://freepreviews.blogspot.com/

Freeview started on Friday and ends on Monday? ;)


Again, some are 3 days, some are 4 days, some are 7 days, some are longer. It depends on the programming, depends on a number of things. Some SAY 3 days but might actually be slightly longer because the broadcast start date is not consistent with a midnight end of day for an average person, so some may go 3.5 days, 3.3 days, 3.8 days, or 4 days but they may be messaged as 3 days.

Just trying to help. Important game for the Pokes this week, can't start 1-2.

What's the last mistake you made today, dcowboy7?

Reading your post. :P

Now that has to be one of the funnier exchanges that I've read in some time. Glad to see both of you appreciating the humor in it.

As for the topic at hand...Jets Fans in Florida....???

I'm sure both of them could have found another way to catch the game in a bar or something. :lol:

sat racer is wrong, I kept flipping back and forth, back and forth between plays, nothing until 4mins left in the 1st quarter when the Ravens game ended.

I even tried their stupid searching for game function which just stopped working, it hung, after a minute I gave up as I did not want to miss more of the game..

It's like 1970's technology... How many times do I have to flip to game mix and try and switch the audio and apps start to load or double play starts....

Their monopoly is crumbling due to the red zone channel and NFL network yet D does nothing to keep us around.


I'm a Jets fan too. In Dallas, it was the same sitution. I checked the ST channel at kickoff and it was blacked out. The blackout was lifted about 2 minutes into the game on the ST channel. It sounds like someone just dropped the ball in S Florida. I had that happen to me last year during the Patriots game, where the early game ran late and someone at Directv was asleep at the wheel and the blackout wasn't lifted for most of the first quarter and I had to watch on the mix channel. I was about as happy as you were a week ago.

I prefer when the Jets are not on local TV. If they are the late game, this situation happens. If they are the early game, they could be switched in a blowout. I had that happen when I was watching a recording after the game was over and could not switch to the ST channel.

Two things are really wrong with your post...

1. There are tons of Jets fans in S Flordia. I used to live in West Palm Beach and there are many relocated New Yorkers.

2. Any bar would have Directv and have the same situation the poster had.

I was aware of both things...just trying to add some levity to the conversation. :D;)

No sweat.

I worked for a Ft. Lauderdale operation for several years in the past, and also now work for a Northeast-based operation....so I'm familiar with both ends of the NY Jets fan support/locations stick. ;)

To me, this is a pretty good example of why D* leaped at the opportunity to kill most of their part-time HD RSN channels and move them to full-time HD.

It's painful, staff-intensive (read expen$ive), 100% guaranteed to be imperfect, and 100% guaranteed to p**s off a significant number of your customers when you have to rely on staff to intensively monitor and adjust on the fly a whole bunch of channels. And try not to be shocked at the heresy of the thing, but not everyone who works in TV engineering is a hard-core sports fans that understands what they're looking at from a content pov.

It happened again. I wasn't watching the Jets in real time and local Fox decided to switch to another game, so I missed half the fourth quarter. It seems every time the Jets are on local Fox or CBS I either miss the begining of the late game or the end of the early game.

you still need people to handle part time over flow feeds.

Can't really put them on timers and some times you need to trun on a over flow very quickly if one game runs long or has a long delay that runs into the next game.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Sure, there's always times when you need human intelligence to make human decisions. . . and the less of those you can design into the system to require, the cheaper and less problematic your life and your customers lives will be.

No offense Alevine but the local Fox channel did you a favor today:lol: I would be in a foul mood if I were you as well.

But what we don't know is if Direct TV opened up the Sunday ticket channel for your game when the local channel switched as they are supposed to do....

That was a painful game to watch and I'm sure Directv opened up the ST feed.

The point of having a DVR is to watch the game when I want. If I could just record the ST feed, I know I'd get the whole game, as painful as yesterday's game was. If I'm not home, I can have the game switched because of blowout or the Cowboys coming on in the late double header game. I know that Directv's hands are tied on this one. It just stinks that if the Jets are on FOX or CBS, I have to be home to monitor if they game is switched early or an early game makes it start late, either of which I need to go to the ST feed and hope that someone turned it on.

Or record it on both.

If the ST channel comes open after the recording starts, will it record when it comes on or does it just shut down? Does anyone know?

1) record the shortcuts game if you have st max

2) most nfl games are listed on sports torrent sites, so if you really needed to see how pathetic the jets are, that is another option
