Can anyone please explain how the DirecTV blackout works? For crying out loud, we're in San Diego, and EVERY channel that is carrying the NHL Playoffs Red Wings vs Ducks game is BLACKED OUT!
This is so frustrating. We sat through the OT of the Hawks game on 220 (NBCSN HD) and when they switched to the Ducks game...BLACKED OUT. 215 (NHLHD) blacked out. Fox Sports West...Blacked out.
So 220, 215, 692 all blacked out. We (san diego) just got our own Fox Sports (694) but they were showing the Padres Baseball. PrimeTicket (693) was showing basketball. So why would the other channels be blacked out if we have no other options?
There isn't a channel to watch the game on!!! And, I believe San Diego is (for whatever reason) considered the market area for the Anaheim Ducks. We didn't have any problems during regular season.
Are we just sh*t out of luck or is someone falling asleep at the controls at Directv? I see Ducks fans posting play-by-play on their NHL forum, so SOMEONE is able to watch it.
Makes me want to scream.
