My channel guide is showing that a lot of these games are on MLBEI now. What I can't understand is that both Astros feeds are blacked out here (San Antonio DMA) even though we are in Astros territory and it's the Astros home broadcast. What gives? I expect to not get the other team's feed because of blackout rules, and when the Comcrap Houston feed wasn't on D* I knew the game would be unavailable... but now, when the channel guide shows both of the feeds? What's up with that? Or do I not understand the blackout rules (MLB's are the worst of all major sports, IMO) the way I think I do?
DirecTV has no contract with CSN Houston, so it can't show Astros games within the Astros home markets. It has the right to show the Astros feed out-of-market through the rights it gets from MLB as part of the MLBEI contract.
