    The big four networks collecting 40% of the retransmission fees collected by their affiliates - and pushing to get 60% of the fees. Which makes sense since the primary content on a network affiliate is the network provided programming ... but it doesn't help the end consumer who has to pay to view the content.

    It's like this, and we're (the consumer) the last one...

    CBSSN is still greyed out for me. I can get it but I tried to record the college football game tonight and got the message that I wasn't subscribed.

    If you are sure you should have access to it, try a 'refresh' of your receiver at your account online.

    I'm subscribed to the Sports Pack. This has been going on since DirecTv brought CBS back.

    Tried the refresh and it didn't work. Did a D* Chat and they had me do a reset and that didn't work. They sent out a refresh signal and that didn't work. They said they will look into this and get back to me.

    I could care less about this channel until College Football season rolls around. Aren't I the lucky one.

    Seems to be a few reports of various sports channels not working for some. Good luck with that.

    ^Perhaps I can get them to give me a deal on ST this year for the inconvenience since nothing else has worked.
