I know this a DTV forum. Somehow I'm blackout for the Furman @ Presbyterian game. I know its not a big game or anything,but even games that are on just ESPN3 itself are blacked out.

Could having the ESPN Gameplan have anything to do with this?

How are you trying to watch it? TV requires Gameplan. Mobile, including iPads, requires your tv provider to have a deal for Watch ESPN. Computers just require that your ISP provides access to ESPN3.

Blackouts apply. http://sports.espn.g...meplan/blackout
