    and Four Downs with Felger?

    I've had Directv for years since I live in the Northern VA area. I've been watching New England tailgate every season. I watch the Fox Sports New England show nightly. Suddenly, I'm unable to get New England Tailgate and 4 Downs with Felger. I called Directv and they claim that the Boston Fox affiliate is not allowing these to be shown outside of the Boston area.

    I think its bull. Are any of you other remote Pats fans with Directv finding the same thing? The reason I get the local sports package is to have access to some Boston area sports programming. They already black out the Sox, Bruins and Celtics because they have a premium service for those leagues, but I've always been able to get the other programming.

    Anyone else in my position?

    Follow the above link and complain to FSNE (i posted a link). I am in the same boat (central va) and have bought the sports packages for the games, but i have no idea why the shows are blacked out---it can't be because of the highlights because i can still see "sports tonight"

    Let us know if you hear anything! Good Luck!
