Ok I had the free game mix channel and even Last Friday I was able to watch my current Phoenix home team the Dbacks play on the game mix channel. Well the free trial ended so I ordered it. Now that they have my money, they blackout the dback games on the game mix channel. Why would they allow it during the free trial, then Black it out once I pay. That seems totally unfair, and misleading.
Please chime in.
Thanks
Dan

D'backs were home and I believe it was on OTA tonight as the game was not in EI.

It is just becuase it was an OTA game. OTA rights are different with each station.
