I bought MLBEI for the first time. SInce the beginning of the year all Reds games are blacked out and it searches my local RSN for the game. I live right outside of Charlotte NC so my local teams are the O's, Nats, Braves and Reds. I called Direct last night and they told me that only OH and KY get channel 661 for Reds games. They said check my local channels and I proceed to tell them I am in NC not OH. He said there is nothing they can do about the blackouts. Direct told me to buy the sports pack and then I will get the reds. I am thinking the reds are going to be blacked out to me all year since ever game so far has been. Any suggestions would be helpful.
