I'm forced to watch tonight's game on NHL Network who plaster their ridiculous graphics with news and scores from other game's at the bottom of the screen, taking up a good 5% or more of the actual broadcast. I guess the geniuses at NHL Network haven't figured out that following the puck and the play during a hockey game is kind of important. The NHL Network is such a joke. And while I'm at it, I'm so sick of Kathryn Tappen's voice.

I add the sports package with the understanding that all games would be blacked out on the Regional channels. This is directv's way of getting you to buy Center ICe, League Pass, Extra Innings etc. No problem with that at all.
I'm looking for content (news, locker room interviews, etc) of my teams that are outside of my regional market. I'm pretty sure those are the reasons why anyone would pay extra for those channels. So now it's being blacked out, so what's the purpose of paying for that sports package?
I'm canceling that sport's package this week.

If your location is correct and the picture on this is correct you are inside the viewing area...
