Fox Sports South-Blackout
Posted 21 September 2005 - 10:00 PM
Curious as to why I cannot view sertain shows ala the SOuthern Sports Report and last Saturday and Maryland/West Virginia game.
I know I cannot receive Turner South, but a lot of FoxSS programming comes through, it is just some shows cannot be viewed.
Curious as to why that is....

As to the Southern Sports Report, what probably happend is that a live event ran long. While the guide will read Southern Sports Report, its the previous programming still on, and still blacked out.
As to the football game, that was syndicated by JP Sports to local stations in towns of interest. FSN-South bought it for showing in its own local zone, just like a local station would. You do not live in the FSN-S local zone. It was available in Game Plan for others.

Anyway, that's just to let you know that some shows are blacked out of my secondary RSN as well.

Some now say something like - program not availalble, and list the receiver and card id numbers. Others say for access call x721.
Has this changed? or are blackout rules dynamic and I'll never understand them?
(this is stations in the 600s, with Total Choice Premier.)
