I dont care if directv goes bankrupt or not. But Dish is charging people for packages that Dish knows will not be broadcasted they should be forced to pay customers back the money they stold. Today Cant see Astos and the twins game in Minnesota, it is blocked look at gamefinder almost all programming of MLB is Blocked except Lattino.
I do not have a good working knollage of programming or channel packages but why is todays game Astros & Minnesota blocked here game is in (Minnesota) is that still a home game? And on 4/8 Astros & Padres game in Houston on FSSD wouldnt that be a reigonal game. Directv aired it on FSSD but not dish. As I said I have little knollage so please help me to understand.
It's because ATT/DirectTV bought the Roots network that has both The Astros and Rockets. DirecTV and Dish are in a perpetual pissing contest and can't/won't come to an agreement to allow Dish to show the games. Very frustrating. It's been like this for years now.
As I understand it Dish or any other company of this type has to buy the rights (sports anything else that people would want to see) to rebroadcast content or in some cases they get paid to rebroadcast (HSN) and other channels of this type. I dont care about how it works I just want to see my Astros.
