    That game is included in the MMM package on 705. Why is it blacked out on 613?

    I had the same issue I was watching it, but then I went back to watch agian and I got 721. I looked online and I have Xtra and according to Directv.com, it's only on Ultimate and above now.

    CBS College Sports is showing the UTEP-Butler game nationwide (as they are the Texas A&M-Utah State game Friday at 5:00).

    It's being blacked out in areas where the game is being shown locally. So even if it hasn't started yet, that's probably the reason for the blackout.

    If you're not getting the game locally on your CBS affiliate, then they're blacking you out by mistake. I'm not having an issue here in RI, and the game's definitely not on locally.

    Just last year it was moved to Choice Xtra Package why would they want to move it to a movie pack?

    and why it would just trun off right at the time a game in sports ppv pack came on at the same time.

    Escalating to our broadcast team to investigate. You may want to reset the receiver to refresh the programming as well.

    It's got to be an error on their end.

    One other poster who is having a problem is from Texas, and since it's UTEP playing, he wouldn't be seeing the game on CBSCS but rather his local CBS station. So the blackout makes sense for him, obviously not for you though.

    Hopefully they'll get it straightened out for those of you with issues...

    No clue. I called in but the rep didn't really have an answer. She thought it was something to do with the Mega March Madness package but that game is being shown on 705. Why would 613 be blacked out because of that package? It's not like it's a RSN.

    Anyone else in PA getting 721 error? Do you have MMM package?

    Exactly right. The only reason it should be blacked out is if you're living in an area where the game is being shown locally on CBS. Otherwise, CBSCS has the national rights to air the game, as they do the 5:00 game tomorrow, so you shouldn't be seeing a blackout in Pennsylvania.

    I'm in RI and it's on here. Tell them that, lol.

    Blackout here in IA. Currently refreshing programming and resetting receiver. DirecTV would never pull a channel into a new package at 4:45p ET. Just a simple error on their end, probably a mapping error with the Mega March Madness.

    Are you subscribing to the MMM package and getting it on 705 but not 613? Maybe there's some kind of conflict there or something.

    If that's the case, why not just watch it on 705, it's the exact same feed..

    No, I don't have MMM. I thought maybe I had to have it to watch it on 613 for some reason.

    Receiver reset didn't work either.

    No, definitely not. I don't have MMM either and it's on 613 right now.

    Sounds like they probably have the wrong zip codes in their database for the blackout or something along those lines.
