Uh if you have the sports pack on Direct TV it is blocked on 646 but on I think 634 or something close to that.

Man Tinsley gets no respect from the reffs!!!!

I'll probably just buy Season Ticket, due to the fact that I can get all the channels + NBA season ticket for the price of digital cable. However, I'm still pissed.

What systems are you one? The game is not sold out so it is probably blacked out in Indy.

I'm on DirecTV with none of the optional sports packages. I'd agree with you, but a lot of games weren't sold out last year, and I had no problem getting them with cable.

im on direcTV also. On my fox sports channel, it is playing some sports show, but I have talked to other people that have basic cable and they are watching it right now on fox sports.

I'm on Dish Network. FSNMW always has normal prog. during Pacers games rather than the game, and at first I was pissed, then I realized I have 4 "alternate" channels of FSN programming, and they always stick the Pacers games on one of those 4 channels. Only bummer is no pre-game, no post-game. :(

For those of you on Direct TV it is not blocked on 642 At least not on mine but I have the sports pack. Of course you could always log onto directtv.com and add that, then take it off after the game.

Ragnar

WTF they seem to have switched to the Pacers feed? Thats odd

That's the thing. I shouldln't HAVE to buy the sports pack to see a game that isn't blacked out. And who's to say that that will work next time this happens? I'd order League Pass, but I think it would be blacked out in this case too.....

They're saying that this will be the only game blacked out, I'm not going to worry about it.
