Supposedly their is a new contract with RSP and DIRECTV which own RSP that these will be blacked-out unless you are in the Pittsburgh RSP viewing area. I will be cancelling my Sports package with DIRECTV and save some money unless they fix this stuff now... but I doubt they will unless everyone calls and complains non stop.
I called and got upset with the first rep. He told me that I would only have access to the region in which I lived. I proved him wrong by flipping around to FS Detroit, SUN Sports, etc...
I asked to be escalated to a supervisor.
I talked to a lady and said that if the pregame blackouts continue I would first call to voice my displeasure, then cancel my regional sports subscription because it would literally be worthless to me.
