I recently switched from cable to DirecTV so now I have NFL Ticket, Red Zone, etc. I also added the Sports Pack which includes a bunch of regional sports channels including NESN (628) and Comcast SportsNet New England (630). Last week I tried to record programs like Patriots Wednesday, Patriots Football Weekly and Patriots This Week but none of them recorded. I don't recall the exact message I got when I tried to play it but it appears that these programs are blacked out. Are those shows only available to customers in the New England area? If so, why would they do that? Also I am looking at channels 704 and 705 where they play 30 minute shortcuts of each game on Monday and Tuesday. I don't see Dolphins-Pats however. Do they skip producing the Monday night games? Do they also skip Sunday night games? or how do they decide which games they do a shortcut for?
