    Is the game in the ESPN exclusive window? I still don't get why the window begins over 3 hours before the ESPN game starts.

    I thought the blackout window began at 5pm ET, which this game is clearly outside of..

    Nor Mariners vs Athletics either at 4:00PM.

    Frustrating to say the least.

    Window is not supposed to be invoked on any game starting before 5:00Pm on Sundays.

    And just as promised, Dbacks-Rockies is blacked out on MLB EI via DirecTV.

    FSArizona says they don't believe it should be blacked out, what a surprise...

    Must have been a mistake because the game is now showing up on extra innings channels 745 and 746. Don't see the Oakland and Seattle game in the guide.

    Exactly.

    Great, now we can have an EI blackout thread everytime there is a weather, too? I can't wait for this free preview week to be over :)

    The point being it wasnt blacked out on D* they were showing whatever programming the two channels gave them because of the weather delay/cancellation.

    Yeah I saw that. CSNBA+ doing the A's telecast also.

    Strange that neither have been remapped into the EI Channels.


    At least the Game is on though.

    Neither feed was blacked out here, even before the game was cancelled.

    I realize there is a weather cancellation, but the fact is, the game was still blacked out, and the channel is blacked out still, and the best I got from a CSR is to refresh my services...

    How do you know the game was blacked out? It was postponed. Are you 'assuming' it would've been blacked out if they played it?? :rolleyes:

    Do you subscribe to the Sports Pack? If not, of course the other programming will be blacked out for you since the game is not being shown.

    I got the Mariners and A's on 747-1 and 748-1. Guide is showing 745-1 and 746-1 for Rockies and Diamondbacks but it also says postponed. 745-1 is showing poker and 746-1 is showing a Rockies show.

    I think we've seen irregularities in the first week of the season before. I've also seen inconsistent listing of game channels in the scoreguide as well this weekend. Everything from missing channels to wrong number assignments. One game had three EI channels listed. Only one was right. Maybe part of the late updates?

    Neither Game was Blacked out, Just not listed in the Guide until Shortly before 1st Pitch. Less than half-hour in both cases.

    If you checked the ScoreGuide also neither Game had an EI listing on the Where to Watch, all that was listed initially were the RSN Channels in the 600's.

    Games are there, Good to see. Would be better if they were listed properly in the Guide. Small stuff all in all.

    D** doing a fine Job with the EI package overall on Opening Weekend.
    :D
