Every time the CAVs play at the same time the BlueJackets play, the Cleveland market gets denied the BlueJackets games. They tell us to tune to FSCin to get the game. We don't get FSCin in Cleveland! Any advice on how to fix this? http://www.foxsports...?blockID=867605

Why should I have to. Why not just open the FSCinn feed or put it on an alternate channel. They do that for other teams all the time. I am in there home territory. I shouldn't need the sports pack.

DirecTv should be able to show both in Cleveland. This isn't 1990

they could but priority number 1 is profit so they want you to pay extra for the sports pack. Take it up with retention if you don't like it and maybe they will give it to you free for 3 months or something

You can usually get $10/month off the sports pack just for asking for it.

The other night, the Monsters game was on FSN Ohio (in glorious SD), when it suddenly disappeared and the Blue Jackets game popped on.

FSN Ohio is a joke. I can only hope that the issues with Cavs/Jackets, no full-time HD, and other issues get ironed out with the STO buyout.

Don`t forget, people in Cinci also lose Jackets/Cavs games to U. of Cinci basketball sometimes.

But you`re also not paying the extra couple of dollars per mo. to get the programming.

You could be like me and many other people in CT(outside of Fairfield county)... We are in the NY territory for the Rangers and Knicks but because either Directv is too cheap to pay or MSG is asking too much to include our zipcodes in their contract with MSG, we get blacked out of the Ranger and Knicks.

It's kind of a slap in the face to the people in the excluded zip codes.

Directv since 1999

Current Equipment:

HR34-700 -> Onkyo TX-SR607 -> Sony 40" KDL40XBR4
HR24-500 -> Denon AVR-X2000 -> Samsung 40" UN40F6300

HR24-500 -> Sony NSZ-GT1 with Google TV -> LG 32" 32LD450
HR20-700 -> Insignia 26" NS-26L450A11

wouldnt there be an alternate channel (besides 661) that shows it?
I know as example the Wild are shown in both MN & WI. When the Bucks play 669-1 (FS Wisco) gets the bucks game and the Wild feed is on an alternate channel (like 680)

I hate to state the obvious but did you try and tune to 661-1 (FSN Cincy?)

I know you dont get the station normally but maybe they opened it up just for the game.

Call up. Politely explained the situation and got the sports pack for $3 a month for a year.
