    Manager at Buffalo Wild Wings in Utah I went to said the Olympic Channel was not on his package. Greyed out in the guide, and claimed he tried to tune to it with no success.

    Not in commercial choice plus?
    Buffalo Wild Wings may even have an Enterprise deal and why force big accounts to make a new deal to get this channel?
    DIRECTV For Enterprise - 1-888-772-5340

    I have premier and it's been white since launch, never any issues with the channel. However, when you select the call letters and press select for on-demand, it goes to ESPN Deportes VOD. There is no channel 1624.

    I find it odd that in this day and age it's not available to DIRECTV users in the NBC Sports app either. I wonder if it's part of the same issue or if Comcast wanted too much money for the rights.

    The channel just launched, a LOT of providers who have the channel don't have access to the authenticated app stream yet (i.e. the 3 Spectrums and Suddenlink), while some others only got access in the past week or so. The only reason why the OTT providers like Fubo, DTV Now, PS Vue and others got it on day one was because they use the app stream for many of NBCU's channels so they had to prioritize them.

    DirecTV's access will be coming within the next few weeks, if not sooner, one of the last steps in getting app authentication implemented was done a few days ago on Adobe's end of things.

    On the DTV app, it shows available on my phone and authorizes but only has a blank screen. Hopefully it will be available soon.
