And what does keeping on at DirecTV look like. I called last night to be told by two different people it wasn't there fault, that there was nothing they could do. Their advice to me was to write the FCC because they make the blackout rules. Since then I've emailed and had no response.... Bottom line is DirecTV is a big company who have people on their front lines who can't answer people's concerns and certainly can't fix them. I suppose I should be thankful that there have been less problems this year with NHLCI but what happened last night should not have.
