Program blacked out

I just got SCI "Street Science" is blacked out in your area error 70. Happening on PC, phone, and tablet. I just watched "Mythbusters" with no problem. Any idea what's going on? I am at home, within billing and physical zip. I've watched Street Science before and had no issues. Cleared cache and force stopped apps and cleared temp files and cookies on PC with no effect.

Like others being blacked out. The owner of the content does not consent to the programming being streaming. DTVN has no reason to block any content. They have nothing to gain from that.

Thanks for the reply!  I completely understand what you're saying but I thought maybe it was a glitch or something since I've watched first run Street Science episodes before.  Anyway, it's it is a glitch, contract dispute, or whatever, I hope it's resolved soon.  I just checked and SCI is working fine now playing Mythbusters.  If it's SCI blacking it out, as you say, it's kind of a jerky deal...  Thanks again.
