    Game is on Root sports channel 659; not in the Extra innings listings, no big deal right?

    Wel it just went to blackout on 659 for some inane reason; pretty sure Phoenix isn't in the pirates or brewers region

    Ooops! Blackout peeps alert!

    It's getting ridiculous how terrible DirecTV is getting with their sports programming. For all they tout as having so much, there have never been more technical/guide errors and missed games/stupid blackouts for no reason, etc. They're not doing a good job looking better than Coincast right now with as bad as their guide data and errors like this have been.

    I get it if it's a bandwidth issue and they can't put up the CSN Philly feed for a Phillies game (even though I don't believe that for a second). But not having a game in the EI lineup that is on one of their RSNs and all they have to do is re-map it...this is just getting stupid. Then it gets blacked out in the sports pack for a few minutes for those of us that are PAYING FOR THE GAMES!

    This, on top of the stupid blackout of Red Wings-Ducks for people in San Diego last night is just really making DirecTV look worse and worse by the day.

    It came back on, but it's still stupid that they didn't put it in the Extra Innings lineup. Just more guide problems for DirecTV.

    It wasn't there for me, and never came on. I had to watch it on Root Sports Pittsburgh, which is fine...at least I got to see the game. But it's still weird.
