I'd love to be watching Minnesota at Chicago in glorious HD on NBC Sports Channel, but my provider (Charter) has broadcast something else this evening, relegating the game to a second tier channel.
So, is anyone else having this problem? I'm particularly interested in the other Wisconsin Ws, as well as those in Chicago and Minnesota. I know my brother in Madison, also Charter, has the same issue.
Bleeping Charter is at it again tonight. Tonight at least they have the decency to have a pre-recorded announcement when you call to advise you that it's blacked out.
Of course, they tell me it's due to the network. We'll see if I get an answer from the network on why someone in a different TV market from either team is getting the game blacked out. I'm convinced it's a Charter issue where they can't get their switching done right.
Hey Guru - If you see this, can your cable background offer any help?
WHAT HAPPENED: Because of the NHL's equalization policy, if a "rich team" gets an unrestricted free agent signed away from them, they don't get squat, because it's making them unfairly better than the small market teams.
