    I have the Mas Ultra package and I keep getting error 721 when I try tuning to TWCDeportes #458.

    Shouldn't this channel be apart of the Mas Ultra package according to D* website.

    Read the last parargraph.


    "DIRECTV Has Reached an Agreement with TWC SportsNet


    Thanks to your patience and continued support, DIRECTV today entered into an agreement with the new Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Deportes to make the Lakers and other local teams available to your family. SportsNet will be launching on channel 691 and Deportes on channel 458 prior to Friday night's Laker's game.
    DIRECTV continues to believe no team should ever deny its most loyal fans access to any games they might want. We always strive to provide you the very best television experience at the most reasonable cost and are happy to achieve that once again with this new partnership. We know you have a choice among TV providers, and we appreciate your choosing us.
    For more information, visit DIRECTV Promise.
    [SIZE=9pt]Note:[/SIZE] [SIZE=9pt]Time Warner Cable SportsNet requires a base programming package of CHOICE or higher and Deportes requires a base programming package of MAS[/SIZE] ULTRA or higher."

    [SIZE=9pt]I called D* CS last night and the lady was as confused as I was because TWCdeportes does not show up in the Sports pack as well and I cant get it on my Mas ultra Package.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=9pt]So just how is one able to watch said channel?[/SIZE]

    I just reauthorized my reciever via the web and I still get 721 on said channel.

    Maybe its only available with sports pack,but they sure did not word it accordingly in the presser in my first post.

    wouldn't it have to be in the sports pack out of the L.A. market? Being in Spanish doesn't make it not a RSN.

    There are blackouts on TWCD. Although you can watch the Lakers on your phone on TWCD, at least I could last season! It is treated like an RSN: the Galaxy (games and some shows), Lakers (games only), and Sparks (live games) are blacked out as any RSN would be. I have En EspaƱol and Sports Pack.

    Why not? It's an RSN.

    The 721 message is the blackout message if the game is available in one of the MLB EI, NBA LP, etc packages. I have seen a few posts about this recently on this and the other site. I don't understand why it's all of a sudden confusing people....

    Is the Spanish broadcasts on TWCSN Deportes included in those packages? i wouldn't have guessed that.

    Because Directv stated in their presser,which is posted in my first post that "Mas Ultra" and above is needed to view said channel.

    I have Mas Ultra and they have me block and TWCD doesn't even show up on the Sports pack listing on D* website.So thats why the confusement.
