If you're within 1000 miles, you're supposed to be blacked out, right? Sheesh
NHLN telephone # (212) 789-2000
directv.com/email to have D get back to you with your complaint.
Why do I pay for NHLCI And the NHL Network
Well I'll fire a letter and a phone call off on Monday.That felt good to vent a bit on the phone.I haven't vented since 330pm today. (cheering at the Flyers game)
Time for some liquid venting <lol>
just sent them an e-mail...
Wow,I wonder if the Canucks or Blackhawks will claim my area at 10 ? <lol>
It's in the clear here in Cleveland and I don't have CI. OTOH boy does Cherry have a fugly suit on tonight.
Oh probably Philly is close to everywhere....
This is just sick....
I'm actually 8 miles from NYC via the crow.
Well thanks to DirecTV one of the best Leafs games of the season was blacked out.
Thank you VERY much Direct TV
It was probably the NHL.NHLN or one of the teams that requested the blackout.D has to abide by that.
If you live in the Philly area, DirecTV had nothing to do with it, you can thank Comcast Philly for not allowing the satellite companies to carry their signal. The NHL blackout regulations prevents DirecTV from broadcasting the Flyers games, in the Philly area, when they are covered by your local RSN. I think it is very stupid and shouldn't be allowed in the situation that exists in your area. If DirecTV were to give you that game they would be in violation of their contract with the NHL/Center Ice, so it is really not their fault.
Wow, well with all of this going on, I hesitate to ask this question. But was the Islanders/Predators game at one point in HD, then switched over to SD on MSG+? I wonder if it was because of the Rangers game being in HD too?
But why would that happen though, the Flyers were not being shown on NHLN, so they should have gotten the game?
Looking at all the complaints & the people reporting the blackout problem,it seems to be east of the Pittsburgh area.People in OH & VA seem to be in the clear.
If the Flyers game is on Comcast Philly, that is the only way you can see the game in the Flyers viewing area. The NHL blackout rules gives them exclusive rights in the Flyers viewing area. In this case it should be lifted (In my opinion only), as Comcast refuses to allow satellite coverage of Comcast Philly. Now if Comcast Philly was not broadcasting tonights game and say NHLN was, you might get it in Philly, via NHL network.
By the way, us Panther fans want to thank the Flyers for that win today.
The screw up can have little to do with the Flyers. They played this afternoon and other games were on NHLCI at the same time. It makes no sense that this blackout should have been so wide. Besides there was another Leafs Pens game at the beginning of the season that was on the NHL Network and which was NOT blacked out in Philadelphia.
Either the NHL or DirecTV screwed up but I doubt we will ever find out who ruined the night for so many fans.
uhhh - The Flyers were not playing - it was Pittsburgh - only 5 or 6 hours west of us over the mountains on the PA Turnpike.
My bad, I was thinking it was the Flyers/Caps game. :bonk1:
Well I was having Anaheim Ducks games blacked out last year on NHL network in Buffalo. Fortunately it was fixed. Keep on Directv for this because I think this is on their end.
