    I live in Post Falls, ID and the Sonics where once my "regional sports team" but with them moving, i assume that the Blazers are the local team now right? Is there any possible reason why their game against the Kings might not be televised due to the fact Comcast Sports NW televises their games (blackout restriction)? I'm a die-hard Kings fan and i'm about to buy League Pass today just so i can start watching tonight against the Blazers.

    sorry if i'm long-winded on this,

    thanks,
    pilot305 :)

    Wow, i didn't know that now Idaho doesn't even have a regional NBA team. I wonder if i got the sports package instead of NBA Season Pass, that i'd get any of the "out-of-market" games since i don't have a "in-market" team anymore? I'm sure i'm pushing it...........

    All nba games besides those nationally televised (nba tv, tnt, espn/espn2, abc) are blacked out unless you have nba league pass. Sonics only claimed you because kqup was carrying the games and you recieved that channel. Otherwise, the games would have been blacked out on fsn northwest.

    League Pass games should be available to everyone until a few days into the regular season. That's the way it's always worked in the past.

    I don't think the exhibition game is broadcasted on CSN Northwest anyway, according to the Oregonian.

    Never use team websites for the final word on what a team is covering. Especially, this early, they are not always complete or acurate. csn california is carrying the game. csn northwest is not carrying the game tonight. Kings schedule has not been post on their website yet.

    I really don't understand them anymore, both games airing right now are blacked out on csn and fsnh along with the corresponding nbalp channels.

    It's called directv is asleep again. Should be fixed by the week of 10/27. Good luck at getting anyone at directv that knows what is going on.

    It really pisses me off that they make pre season games part of league pass, no other sport does that and then for the people that do have lp they freaking black out the first two games that are supposed to be on.

    Good luck getting the NFL preseason games (other than on NFL Network delayed). And MLB preseason games are hit and miss.

    The Grizz and Rockets, and the Wizards vs Dallas are both blacked out for me.

    CSR roulette was very bad for me. The supervisor told me they were blacked out because they weren't sold out. The ONLY reason I didn't pack the family up on a jet to Dallas to watch a preseason game is that I was really hoping to watch it on TV.

    :mad:

    D'oh! Somebody must've bought the last ticket, the blackout has been lifted.

    :lol:

    In the clear? Meaning everyone is getting them? Non-subscribers, too?

    I have NBALP. I am on auto-renew as well. Both preseason games are on for me. Unfortunately, 751-1 is CSN-HD and they are not carrying the game in HD, but FSN Houston is carrying the Grizzles-Rockets game in HD on 752-1!
