I know I've recorded a few Indians games on MLB Network this year without an issue. But last night I come home and sit down to check MLB Network and the Tribe-O's game is blacked out---I live in NJ. The Red Sox game vs Blue Jays was on the MLBN alternate channel. I spent about 15 minutes on the phone with a CSR and got the answer I kind of expected....well I got 12 different answers but none of them seemed right. Ultimately I was told that DirecTV didn't pay for the rights to air the game nationally so it was blacked out for EVERYONE. I would've expected the game to be blacked out in the Ohio/MD area just like Yankee/Met games are for me here in NJ when MLB Network airs them. And I know I've tuned in to a bunch of games this year on MLB Network and haven't seen an OOM team "blacked out" for me. So I ask: Did ANYONE with DirecTV get to watch the game on MLB network (not the alternate channel) last night? Or, once again, did I just not play CSR roulette well enough (or have the energy to do so)?
