    Well, I was frustrated that I have DirecTV with the regional sports package yet had the BB game last night blacked out. So I wrote FSN RM about it. Their response:

    Now, I don't know the reasoning behind that rule, but don't you think the Big 12 would WANT to have their product in as many markets as possible?

    Silly if you ask me.

    Appreciate the quick response from FSNRM though.:thumbsup:

    I wonder if this is something new? Because in the past few years I've always been able to get all the CU games that are on FSRM.

    Probably spending too much time and effort in this but the B12 official site has this in their TV/RADIO FAQ:

    ESPN effed us :dbt:

    So now we'll need to get ESPN Full Court to see the CU games even though they're broadcast on FSNRM. :sad2: Yea, that sucks. Same deal with the Nugs, all their games on Altitude are blacked out to protect the NBA League Pass package. Almost defeats the purpose of getting all the Fox Sports regionals if you can't see most of the games that are on there.

    Worst part is that last night's game wasn't on Full Court either... I don't have Full Court, but I checked. It does have me rethinking the regional sports package outside of football season.

    The other thing that sucks is that ESPN apparently has agreements with the cable companies to determine who can and cannot stream ESPN360.com.

    Example: The first CU BBall game of the season was being carried on ESPN360. I logged on figuring it would just "load up" but no. It asked to choose my internet/cable provider from a drop down menu. Well, TimeWarner wasn't there so I chose other, and after giving up my zip code I got the nice message "We're sorry, but TimeWarner is not a authorized carrier of ESPN360 in your region."

    So I'm now doubly ****ED! ****ERS!

    More of a reason for the Big 12 to start their own network.

    Hey cut me some slack here, old man! Uncle Sam still gets 6 more years of telling me where to live! If there's a submarine in Colorado I don't know about, let me know and I'll talk to my a-hole detailer about getting orders there!:lol:

    Until then, I'm gonna piss and moan about the ****ty TV packages the B12 signs as much as I want!:thumbsup:
