    The ESPN Full Court Free Preview is supposed to start today, but the channels are not showing up in the guide. I have the guide set to "Channels I Get". The Showtime Free Preview channels showed up without a problem yesterday.


    Anyone else seeing this?:confused:

    yea same problem here. I usually get it every yr but this yr I decided to save my money,you can catch the same games on ESPN3.com and ESPN3 on Xbox 360 Xbox Live.

    I've noticed some blackouts in the sports pack though when I get the sports pack

    I usually skip out on it as I get ESPN3.com via my ISP and it saves money. I also have noticed some blackouts in the sports pack for ACC FSN games and some others.

    my full court channels aren't 'lit up' in the guide either and i just spent 20 min.+ on the horn with CS to no avail. Hopefully it'll be corrected soon as I'd like to see some of the Syracuse game today...

    Getting on DirecTv.com and looking at their on-line guide, the Missouri-Colorado game is supposed to come on at 12:00 noon (CST) on Channel 725. I'm going to see if I can just direct tune to the channel.

    i'm doing an RBR in hopes it'll do the trick but I don't have high hopes. my game is blacked out on espn3 so i guess it could be blacked out on full court as well. i don't get it though, a team from ny playing a team in jersey and i'm in florida...who knows...

    Yeah, same problem here (Florida - Tampa area). I did a reboot through the website on all 3 of our receivers, but no dice. Oh well...

    Not going to purchase this as I already blow enough money on sports packages (NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB). I won't watch enough games to justify the expense (or so says the wife)... :)

    Very cool... Small world! We drive through Sanford on our way to Daytona Beach every year. Bought a house here 3 years ago and went with DirecTv the moment we did and love their service.

    Hey Mizzou you live in St Louis the game is going to be on the CW 11 KPLR so I think you might be blacked out. Also whats your ISP because if you get one with ESPN3.com you can watch it there.

    if that was the case i would not have looked for this thread, let alone posted in it...see my previous post...D* obviously discovered the error of their ways and corrected whatever issue was keeping the games from airing and all is now well where i sit...as long as Syr doesn't blow this lead!
