I recently moved from Los Gatos CA to Scotts Valley CA and kept my DirecTV service. In Los Gatos I got my local channels from San Francisco which was great because I could get all the SF Giants games on FOX KTVU channel 2.
When I moved to Scotts Valley, after a few days, my local channel lineup changed, so I can't get KTVU FOX - which now means I can't get SF Giants
games on KTVU anymore!! The weird thing is that I had the old local channels for almost a week before they were changed over to the new ones.
I called DirecTV and asked if I could get my old local channel lineup and
they said "sorry no, FCC rules prohibit that." They were not helpful at all.
Is there any backdoor way I can get my local channels from SanFrancisco
again? I'm a Giants fan and would have gone with Comcast (who gets KTVU in the area) had I known about this issue.
Hmmm, the new owner of my old house will set up a new DirecTV account so I will need to think about this one (can't use that old address).
Go do a search on moving for tips, but there is a REALLY easy way - just use a physical addy that does NOT physically exist, but IS valid.
For example, if your old house is 1240 Main St. & the house right next door over is 1244 Main St., just change your physical addy to 1242 Main St., since there would actually never physically BE a house there, but it DOES fall into the valid address range of the PO - problem solved.
