I have been experiencing issues with my FSMidWest programming. For some reason, even though I live in the Springfield-Champaign DMA, and the Pacers are now considered my "home NBA team" due to your new contract with them, I STILL cannot watch Pacers games on FSMidwest via Dish. I can understand the issue with not being able to see games that are broadcast on FSMidWest+, but games that are being shown on the FSMidWest main channel shouldn't be blacked out to me. My neighbor, via Cable, was able to watch the game on FSMidWest, however I was not.
I have contacted Dish about this issue, and even gone as far as escalating it all the way to their Executive Resolutions team, where I spoke to a man named Angel. You can contact him at 303-942-8605 ext. 81017 if you would like. After being placed on hold several times, I was told that I needed to contact you, as this is not an issue with the RSN or the DMA, but this is a contract issue between your station and Dish itself, and there is nothing that they can do about it.
Can you please shed some light as to what is going on here. According to this release http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/fox-s...souri-illinois
the following DMA's should be allowed to watch Pacers games via your channel:
Since I am in the Champaign-Springfield DMA, what, if anything, can I do to ensure that I am able to watch future Pacers games via your channel? I find it very frustrating that my neighbor, having cable and MUCH fewer channels, is able to watch the Pacers on FSMidWest, but I, with Dish Network, cannot.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
