hello everyone!
I'm interested in getting the nascar hotpass(which would be my first sports subscription), and would like to know if sports subscriptions absolutley require a phone line connection? I have voip, and the receiver is no where near the adapter... so i was wondering if them saying that a phone line connection is required, is the same as them saying that a phone line connection is required for the dvr(when it doesn't matter)? thanks!

A phone line was usually so the receiver could make a monthly call back, which would allow the access card to disgorge pay-per-view purchases, and confirm your location to conform to league required black-outs.

What kind of black-out rules would apply to NASCAR, I have NO idea.

Note: I just perused the Directv FAQ regarding the NASCAR Hotpass, and blackouts are not mentioned with this package. Question #4 as follows:

"Which sports subscriptions are subject to blackouts?
The following sports subscriptions are subject to blackouts:

NFL SUNDAY TICKET™
NBA LEAGUE PASS
NHL® CENTER ICE®
ESPN GamePlan
ESPN FULL COURT
MLB EXTRA INNINGS
MLS DIRECT KICK™
MEGA MARCH MADNESS™
SETANTA SPORTS "

So Hotpass is not listed as being subject to blackouts.
