    Channels I get doesn’t match my Choice package. Regional sports channels appear that I can’t watch.

    DTV phone support was stumped.


    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Nothing really out of the ordinary ....

    DIRECTV code developers have never been able to get the CIG guide filter to fully work correctly after many years of trying ....

    Exactly. I never use CIG. Instead, I have created, and periodically update, one of the two Custom channel lists.

    "Channels I Get" isn't your actual channels. Never has been. Poorly named.

    Long story short, they treat the out of market sports packages as PPV, and since those packages are mostly comprised of remaps of RSNs, they got thrown in that whitelist too. Otherwise the channels would appear and disappear at random for the 6 hour blocks whenever they're in use for a sports package remap.
