    I live in SD and have DirecTV Sunday ticket.

    The Sunday Ticket for the Pats game was BLACKED OUT yesterday. Channel 719 said "this game is not available in your area".

    I had to watch it on CBS, after the Chargers game.

    I didn't know directv blacked out non-regional games.... is this a first??

    At the sports bar we go to, we had to wait for the Chargers - Vikings game to finish before the Pats - Colts game came on and so we eneded up missing the first two and a half minutes. First thing we saw was the Colts reception challenged for being out of bounds.

    I thought that NFL Ticket has an exclusive channel for every game or do they actually overlap (use the same channel to show two games)? This is a big name sports bar that shows every game so it wasn't a matter of only showing regular broadcast games.

    Did the other markets showing the Chargers - Vikings game also miss the beginning as well? For reference these are the areas that CBS had the SD - Minny early game.

    Maybe it only pertained to San Diego and LA as the primary and secondary Chargers markets?

    Sunday Ticket does indeed have a separate channel for every game. Your guy just didn't turn the channel. That sucks.

    Join the club. I went to a sports bar that had every game and I had to wait till the end of the Chargers game. By the way, where do you watch? OC has some good sports bars.
