    I'm on the west coast (Los Angeles) and the second the pre-game show for the NBA playoffs came on TNT went into a blackout. First off, TNT is NEVER blacked out for NBA games. Secondly, this is an east coast game (Orlando vs. Charlotte) that's being blacked out on the west coat. It's been almost 30 min. and this has yet to be resolved. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Same deal. Game is blacked out. I'm going WTF.

    visited another forum. Apparently the HD is blacked out. the SD feed isn't.

    There seems to be screwey blackout issues lately. A couple of nights ago I was trying to watch the San Jose feed of game 5 of the Sharks and Avalanche series. The HD feed was blacked out 5 minutes past the time it usually becomes available (I'm a Center Ice subscriber), but the SD feed was available. I changed to the Colorado feed and its HD was available, so I watched that feed instead.

    There was a similar problem with the Philadelphia @ New Jersey game on Center Ice earlier that night too. The blackout on the HD channel wasnt lifted until moments before the puck dropped, but the SD channel was open on time.

    Seems this might not just be a TNT issue.

    We are aware of the problem on TNT HD right now and are working to get it resolved for you ASAP.

    You can catch the game on TNT's standard definition feed while we work on the HD so you don't miss any of it.
