this isn't unusual for Directv. I wanted to watch the Wings scrimmage on tuesday and it was blacked out. I live in Atlanta so that makes NO sense. during the lockout I tried to watch some of the KHL game REPLAYS that MSG was showing (yes, I have the Sports Pack) and they were blacked out. tell me how that made sense?

They need to explain themselves and I don't know who or how to pressure them.. Tech support usually sucks and doesn't have the answers.
By default do they black out all rebroadcasts / scrimmages / etc...
I don't know why for example the Pirates replays on Mondays are blacked out but the Penguins vintage classics was not a problem.
WTF are their policies???

I find it funny, how DirecTV supposedly owns ROOT, that they could not straighten this out before the early 2nd period.
Did have to laugh as they knew when I said blackout that I was talking about the hockey game. And not five minutes after they had no real answer for me on the phone, it was on, albeit 8 minutes into the 2nd period. Think it stayed on from there. Was nice to see hockey on the widescreen for the first time.
Though really, between CI & sports pack (as part of Premier), should never have had that issue in the first place.
