Default Mlb Tv

I signed up for this right. Was watching the Twins for an hour, I put on the Sox, and there is a DirecTV error extension 721 on the screen. PERFECT!

The only game I wanna watch, and it's not working.

Well, hate to tell you this but I don't think you are going to get any Sox games. If I am not mistaken you can't get local games. Since you live in Chicago, they black the game out. I might be wrong but I am pretty sure that is how it works.

Well if you go to the MLB TV page it gives you a pull down menu at the bottom that shows the ZIP codes where the local games are blacked out.

I don't really know but based on what I read, if you live in Chicago you can't watch the live broadcasts of Chicago teams.

Well then maybe it's just WGN, because I can watch the Cubs game, and it's on FSN Chicago. I have Chip and Stone announcing.

I live in NY, and i was unable to see the Cubs/Mets game due to the blackouts, and when it happens, you get a pop-up window that says something to the effect of ''we're sorry, due to your location, this game is not being offered...'' etc., but with the sox game, i'm loading it and at first it had that directv error thing, and now it wont even load. MLB, I want my money back.

Meanwhile, I can watch the stupid Indians/Orioles game to my heart's content.

I don't believe WGN participates in those broadcasts. It's mostly Fox games.

and now the link officially doesn't exist. Way to problem solve, MLB.

We're breaking up.

This just isn't working.

It's not me, it's you.

It's working for someone who has Direct TV in Lockport.
