    Someone please tell me why Direct tv is blacking out a payed channel?

    I realize this is way off topic, but when I googled it NESN says they only black out games outside of there region and here in Maine the last I checked I've always been able to watch the channel and the games.

    This is the second time, I let last night slide because it wasn't worth watching by time I tuned in.

    Unless you LIVE in New England or have paid for NHL Center Ice, NESN will be blocked out for any Bruins game because that is how the contract is written. The same goes for the Red Sox. They are blacked out on NESN unless you live in New England or have MLB Extra Innings.

    I found that out the hard way when I had DirecTV 5 years ago.

    That usually means it being broadcast on the NHL's network. Look for the Outdoor Life Network. They are probably showing it there.

    I know that it's on NESN here, in the south of Maine, and if I gave a **** I could watch it. But, I'd rather watch flies mating on the Animal Planet.

    What ever happened to Roller-derby?

    Try channel 770, the NHL is free for a week or two to all.

    Ok this is incredible, I can't get the game on my local network, but I can get it on Fox Sports Florida.

    I know when new seasons begin for each sport, other then football Directv give you the first week or so of games free on the networks they are brodcast on.

    Wished I knew this last night, and I hope this is the reason. I don't feel ike searching for the Bruins game every night, hard enough to want to watch them now anyways.

    Toss up between Fast Times at Ridgemont High on VH1 or the Tenn @ Georgia game on ESPN for me.
