I think its stupid they leave the inactive channels in the guide saying "To be announced" -- Thats another reason I dont want to lose my box! (Those channels arent there UNLESS SOMETHING IS ON THEM)
Tell that to fans of the Brewers, Bucks, Royals, Pacers, Sabres, Predators, Grizzlies, Thunder, Hurricanes, Bobcats and other teams where the games only appear on RSN alternates, Big Ten football fans, or anyone who lives in a city that frequently uses RSN overflow channels like MSG2, FS Detroit Plus, MASN2, NESN Plus, etc. On the old system those channels would disappear until the channel was live for the pregame, which was a nightmare, especially before DirecTV reorganized the 600s and many of these RSN alternates and overflows didn't have dedicated channel numbers so the game was on a different channel every night and you couldn't even use the reminder feature. If you were going out, or it was a day game while you were at work, setting a VCR recording was impossible since the channel wasn't even in the guide.
