Please stop with your rhetoric. It's back on now anyway. I suppose every time your local station goes out, you will petition to have them shut down and stoned. Right. Enjoy the game. :nono2:
AFAIK,you do need an account with mlb.com.I checked their site a few minutes ago.Their price for the postseason package was $9.95.
Anyone else getting a ton of stuttering image wise on HD??
On my HR21-100 FWIW.
From the Boston Globe -
It's fixed - game on!!!!
MLB.com was free for everyone until it came back on
Just curious -- you actually DON'T think this will go down as one of the most embarrassing moments in TV sports broadcast history? Because that's not rhetoric, it's reality.
And comparing it to the 11pm news on my rinky-dink local TV station going off? You've got to be kidding. It's a NATIONAL OUTLET that paid millions upon millions to show one of the most critical games, in any sport, of the entire year.
Sorry but you're the one who is way off base in attempting to downplay what a disaster this was and ridiculously trying to equate it with some local market's affiliate blacking out for a few minutes at a time :nono2:
Dude - it's a baseball game.
delayed because another game was also delayed for Obama
DirecTV is confused. The start of Game 6 of the World Series, if there is a Game 6, will be delayed about 10 minutes because Senator Obama has bought 30 minutes of TV time on that night.
Uh....I'm watching the game just fine in HD channel 247.....wonder why i get it and others dont?
Press release from MLB about the issue.
Just checked and no problems here..
That would be Game 6 of the World Series. And there may not be a game six of the World Series.
Besides, it's the freakin' World Series. It's not like we're talking about the Super Bowl.
Those are fightin' words!
RED SOX SUCK!!!!
Must be why every major news outlet, from the AP to CNN etc., is now running stories condemning TBS.
Sports fans will generally allow networks to get away with any number of things. Among them: Strange start times, egotastic announcers and commercials that never seem to end.
But the one thing fans cannot — and should not — forgive is a broadcast that doesn't start on time because of technical difficulties.
Unfortunately, that's what TBS just did to every baseball fan across the nation, allowing a glitch to prevent fans from seeing the start of Game 6 of the ALCS between the Red Sox and Rays.
Amen to that. So much for the "rhetoric" we were spewing in this thread, eh?
I had heard he had purchased time but did not think it was on all the major networks!
I think this is way overblown... An electric problem that killed their primaries and backup router systems? How much of a fluke is that? Its not like they did it on purpose... I believe people should remember a football game many moons ago and then realize there is a big difference between what happened today and TBS being stupid and actually causing this problem.. Issues happen.... Its not like they didn't get it back up as fast as they could... I bet they ran out of breath trying to gettings up quickly...
Good point and distinction about the Heidi Bowl, if that's indeed what you were referring to, but this is still unacceptable.
The thing that drove me insane was not knowing what was going on. I was frantically looking though the DirecTV guide, to see if it was on another channel, and searching for info online and calling DirecTV and following on ESPN's game center. My ten year old was actually far more upset then me! When the scrolling text finally came up it was a big relief.
I wonder if your take would be the same if this had been the Celtics and Lakers in game six.
