I have no CI channels. SD or HD. Nothing.

Well I wasn't going to call for discount on NHLCI., but since I had him on the line, I asked and got $5 credit for 6 months. Not great, but $30 for CI is better then $60.

DTV had their tv guide screwed up. Like you, I was waiting on FSDET for the Wings game and nothing ever came. I checked the other FS channel and found myself blacked out. Finally found out the stupid NHL channel had the game instead. I HATE having to watch a game on that channel!!! I DONT CARE for them and their crawler, I also DONT like how they keep switching between the games. I would have much rather watched it on FS DET! I was so mad first about the tv guide screwup then to find out I have to watch it on NHL

Still nothing here other than Wild/Wings on 215.

220 has college (cornell/yale) (610 will have MN State/MN at 8pm ET)

my RSN is blacked out (lightning) and none of my CI channels have anything other than the logo.

On NHLCI, I now have 769 Isles & Bruins in glorious SD. Not the game I want though.

Actually, have all channels now!

Of course the first period is over, but 2 out of 3 won't be so bad, since there was no scoring in the first.

I can understand your point of view. The problem is that if customers don't call to complain, then they don't know how big of an outage they are having. When I called, I was reading him posts from this forum and letting him know what state they were in. So he knew better then to resort to sending a tech.

Did he ask me a couple things to do that caused me to chuckle about to myself, yes. I was just very persistent, patient and calm. Just made him look for to see if there was a notification about it and he finally did find one. Then I politely asked for a credit on my account and he obliged.

A good place to check when something like this happens is on Twitter. Hundreds of tweets that CI and LP were off the air around the country.

And the first to announce it was a DirecTV problem was @DIRECTVService.
