I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. DirectTv Now has the CSN Bay Area channel which is the main reason I paid for membership. But, why are Warrior games unavailable when they are live? Is this similar to the NBA League Pass black-out rules? This seems deceiving because the DirectTV regional sports PDF file (when looking into subscribing) mentions CSN Bay Area for my zip code as well as listing Warriors and Giants games. Tonight's game happens to be on TNT too...not sure if that is impacting my viewing either.

Hi, I am unable to watch CSN Bay area live program (Warrior games). when the game was live, I got this error message.
sorry this program is not available in this area through directv now
I got this error message in my Ipad and Chrome browser on PC. I was watching from 95134 zip code. CSN Bay area is supported in this zip code. Can you please let me know why I get this error message ?

I agree, I paid for this service for watching Warrior games.. It was disappointing to get that error message. Luckily the game was on TNT too. Chat agents were not able to help. If this is a problem, I will cancel the service too.

Yes, I was able to watch it on TNT, using Directv now app. Hopefully, we will be able to watch next game on CSN Bayarea as it is not nationally televised. Lets see what happens.. Thanks for sharing this !!

I have my billing zipcode set to and I phycially reside in the area covered by CSN Bay Area and CSN California. But all the local games featured in these channels were blocked. Please help!

Same thing happened to me with the Celtics on Comcast Sportsnet New England. Wednesday was nationally televised on NBAtv so I thought that was the issue. They played again tonight, but not on National TV and it was still blacked out. I did a chat session and the person I talked to said it was a known issue that they are working to fix. I don't have complete faith in their support yet, but hopefully he was telling the truth.

Same here. I should have both, but CSN Bay Area isn't even showing up as an option. Live in Sacramento and when I try to watch a Sharks or Kings game, it's blacked out until the game is over.
