    Call DirecTV! Quick!!!

    There's a rumor that Dish Network is dropping FSN, but I haven't heard anything about Comcast.

    Is it normal for schools to not have all of their games televized on local TV?

    Doesn't look like Comcast has it in Boston. Sorry. You'd better start calling sports bars.

    Doesn't Fox Sports offer an expanded football package that permits you to see all of the Fox games?

    Yes, I have it, but I think that may only be for DirecTV. It's on like 10 different channels.

    I checked for the game on Comcast in Boston myself and, like you, couldn't find anything. I can handle the rude, fat, provincial, crappy driving, dipsticks that live here but I'm not sure how much longer I can take having Notre Dame as my only guaranteed college football viewing option each week.

    I'm going to search for a bar that will carry the game.

    The local alumni association is holding a watch party and the Sports Grille near the TD Garden. We may end up bringing our mini party there. Let me know if you plan on heading to it and we can to the secret allbuffs hand shake

    my home sits in such a way that it prevents a a decent signal. i thought that was grounds for selling the house and moving but the wife doesn't think that is a good enough reason :rolling_eyes:

    on the plus side uverse works great for college football. I get all the FCS channels, gameplan, and even that odd Fox College Sports channel that they seem to put the Buffs on at least once a year.....now the nfl is different story.....which takes me back to the moving part....

    The Sports Grille was the first place I was going to check. Hopefully I'll see you and your mini-party there. I'll be the super ridiculously good looking guy sitting by himself.:smile2:

    Dish and FSN are in a contract dispute. As of this morning the FSN is still blocked, however the game is on channel 444 on HDALT.

    If you can't find any other way to watch the game, you can watch online at channelsurfing.net. Go here & scroll down about 3/4ths of the page...

    Crap - we are indeed screwed with dishnetwork. channel 444, the alt, does indeed show on the schedule, but in fact it is being blocked. the kansas game is supposed to be on that channel now but you can't access it. similarly, FSRM, which in theory is showing a baseball game right now, can not be accessed. this truly sucks.

    That's why I've been with DirecTV for 8 years over 4 states in 5 moves. I've always got the game if it was televised.
