The lies and deception have got to stop. FIrst I lost HBO forever and now the Spurs games have started and here we are with no spurs games on TV> Yet i have recieved no compensation or even a remote idea of when the channel will be back. Blamming fox and taking no responsibilitiy is unacceptable. I was told when i renewed for another two years that i would have these channels to watch the spurs and was lied to. Listen to the calls. Check the tape. Do the right thin and let me out of my contract or get me my channel back. Throw HBO in there too.

Starsfan, I know that sports blackouts can definitely be stressful, especially when you’re trying to watch your favorite team. Sometimes, the reasons behind these blackouts can be a little unclear, so I just wanted to offer some information about the situation. Sports blackouts can be caused by any number of reasons. The rights owners could blackout a game on a local channel if it is being carried by a regional or national network, a provider could have purchased exclusive rights to the broadcast, or anything along those lines. Unfortunately, DISH has very limited control over these blackouts. We would love to show our customers all the games that they care about, and definitely would show every game in its entirety if we could. However, blackouts do happen with every television provider, and sometimes there is not much that can be done about it.
