I'm trying to schedule a recording for Tuesday night. PIT - PHL on NBCS ch220. It is grey in the guide, not bright white. Does this indicate another Comcast blackout? I'm in ZIP 18052.

It's there for me, so it's a blackout because the game is on a local channel.
Thanks. That's what I thought. Comcast shouldn't be allowed to blackout in a ZIPcode where they do not sell their service. Comcast owns both NBC and the Flyers. NBC Sports PHL is only on one of two local cable providers.
Yes, this has been an issue forever. But Comcast does not want to do anything about it, and the FCC and NHL have taken no action.
Miracle! Game was on. Bad part. Pit lost.
How can we improve?
