I'm not getting the Cubs HD feed either. I tried all the channels in this thread and did the game channel search.

I've seen this happen once before with the HD feeds on EI.

I was watching the game on EI -- ch. 746-1. That was the HD feed of the Cubs broadcast.

The HD feed of the Cubs broadcast was cut off sometime in the late innings. I'm not sure exactly when it happened because I was doing other things while the game was on. I was watching the HD feed one minute and when I came back my TV was on ch. 746 and 746-1 was dead.

I called DirecTV and the specialist I talked to said that MLB had blacked it out. I pointed out that I wasn't in the Cubs blackout area AND that I could still see the game on three other channels (the Cubs SD feed and the Giants SD and HD feeds) AND I had already watched 7+ innings on the Cubs HD feed. The specialist said she understood but that blackouts came from either the teams or MLB and they had no control over it.

So, basically they want me to believe that the Cubs picked up the phone and told someone at DirecTV to black out only the HD feed of the game more than halfway through it. Is that even possible? Smells like a mouse to me.

You gotta love it. I called 2 weeks ago about this issue with the Dodgers HD feed. One minute I'm watching the game the next minute it tells me "blacked out in my area" I'm in Minnesota.. I called and the CSR said the same thing MLB makes the blackout rules. What a bunch of crap.
