    I have a feeling that they will muck up the 4K Super Bowl too

    After 55 minutes on the phone, they hung up on me.

    I hate ATT so much.

    Odd , I had a nice lady who did an "escalation form " 2 "engineering " I read her some posts from here that even folks with NHL CI could not watch the game on 106.

    But my call was smooth (20 year customer )

    I doubt it because it's a fox sports game .

    Although in the past during Olympics there were a few games that were blacked out , when on local fox.


    But with this game being on multiple providers , and the biggest game of the year ratings wise, I doubt there will be blackout issues.

    Was on phone with them for awhile, but got disconnected. That was because of my phone tho. From what I was told before that happened was that I should be getting the game. Also noticed that the ppv ch. 108 is doing the same.

    She had me reset the receivers just prior to getting disconnected, but nothing changed. I think it just might be blacked out to be honest. Anyone in either market getting the game?

    Edit: Just as I sent the above, the screen changed to say it is indeed blacked out for me. Odd since I'm in Michigan. Ah well, just have to watch in plain 'ol hd, lol

    That blackout issue wasn’t exclusive to Directv. Every provider had that problem

    What a call. They insisted there was no such thing as 106. Asked me to turn off my tv and turn it back on after 15 seconds. And I had to authenticate 3 times. ATT has sucked the life out of Directv.

    That's crazy. I actually spoke with two very polite reps, and even had a couple voicemails left while getting my phone back in working order. "Luck of the draw" I suppose, but I wouldn't be too happy if my call went that way either

    Is it just me or does the PQ look bad on the ESPN college basketball game . ?

    Mabye it was just that between commercials camera ...

    Every zoomed in camera looks amazing but the main court camera players look digitized...

    I was gone all day and recorded the supposed 4k hockey game. When turning on the TV upon arriving home I accessed "List" and noted the game indeed was available but not in 4k; rather, the recording request had shifted to channel 683. Very disappointing.
