I live in CT. I bought DirectTV because they provided Mets and Yankees to all of CT. Today, I was (sorta) watching Mike and the MadDog on YES. I went into another room, came back, and there was a blue "Channel Not Available" screen.

WTF?

Rebooted, still not there. MSG is gone too, but FSNY and SNY are still there. (I don't really care about MSG or FSNY now that the Mets are no longer there)

I am going to call, and if this is legit, I am cancelling, regardless of any penalty or whatever. What a suck job.

:mad: :mad: :mad:

I don't know where in CT you are, I am in Cheshire. All six rsn's are coming in fine for me, channels 620-625.

Not saying it is 100% the case, but they are required (not their choice) to shut-off service zip codes not "in market".

What is your zip code, and are you 110% sure you are in that market? I don't mean just because it was already turned on, but REALLY in that market.

When you call remember you catch more flies with honey and get your call escalated over a CSR and their supervisor.

OK. This is very weird. I dialed up Direct TV and started through their annoying web of auto-prompts. While I was waiting, I checked 622, and it was BACK!!!

ZIP CODE: 06237

WTF??? :confused: :confused:


Thanks for your responses, guys. It must have been a glitch or something, as I was told that ALL of Connecticut was claimed by the Mets and Yankees, and that was why MLB Extra Innings could not show their games. Dish doesn't do YES, MSG or FSNY, but it does do SNY, BTW.

They may be tweaking the service database, or might of had a signal issue from their source or their on little glitch. One good reason to wait things out to see how they shake out before blowing up. A/V isn't perfect.

I know. I would have been pleasant to begin with. It's just that being in Eastern CT and being "forced" to get only the Red Sox by cable and Dish, I get really touchy when someone tries to take away my NY Baseball!! :D

I mean, the only reason I have a D* is for that reason only!

Thanks again for all of your support.

No. I've seen a Studebaker pickup cruising down Rt 66 a few times, thought. (Not THAT Rt 66! :D)
