NHL Blackout on my locat RSN

NHL Blackout on my locat RSN

Greetings.

 

I am fairly new to ATT Uverse (about 3 months) and this is my first post.  As some of you may know last night was opening night for most NHL teams, and for some reason when I turned to Fox Sports Ohio (either one) it said the game was blacked out in my area.  This is a channel I have had since day one with Uverse (I live in Toledo, Ohio).  Not sure who I could contact on such an issue (or if I even should) or just wait until Saturday to see what happens with game 2.

@Dawgpound79.  What is your home address zipcode and what teams were playing?

Early in the season, things do get messed up, from time to time.

Re: NHL Blackout on my locat RSN

My assumption is that your local NHL team is the Columbus Blue Jackets. Perhaps their game was shown nationally last night on the NBC Sports Network, and so it was blacked out on Fox Sports Ohio. That is just my guess.

Here's why:

 

The Zip Code 43607 is the home team territory for the following pro teams:

With the U100 Package and above:

FSN Detroit (Ch.737-SD / Ch.1737-HD)
- NBA: Detroit Pistons
- MLB: Detroit Tigers
- NHL: Detroit Red Wings

FSN Ohio - Cincinnati (Ch.732-SD / Ch.1732-HD)
- MLB: Cincinnati Reds

FSN Ohio - Cleveland (Ch.734-SD / Ch.1734-HD)
- NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers

SportsTime Ohio (Ch.735-SD / Ch.1735-HD)
- MLB: Cleveland Indians

I figured you were in Red Wings territory in Toledo and the Red Wings will be the only team you see except on National Broadcasts, all other RSNs will be blacked out. Smiley Wink

It would be the complete opposite, NBCSN would be blacked out and the RSN would show the game.  As I posted above, his home team is the Detroit Red Wings in Toledo.  Smiley Wink

Re: NHL Blackout on my locat RSN

Thank you for the update.  I have never had an RSN included in a package before and have some of the sports teams blacked out (the Reds were on all summer).  NHL website also says I should only get the Red Wings (bleh!)  I guess my issue was actually with my NHL Gamecenter subscription then since it also blacked out the Blue Jackets game.  I will see how it goes Saturday.  The only other thing I can think of is if the game was on the NHL Network (which for some reason isn't on Uverse).  I know for a fact the game was not on NBS Sports Net (they had Colorado and Minnesota I believe).

Re: NHL Blackout on my locat RSN

Also I am new to Toledo.  The suburb I lived in last winter gave me both Columbus and Detroit on Directv.  Move 10 miles and I lose half my local teams even though I still receive the same channels.

Sorry, mibrnsurg, getting used to the enter key=post thin...

Sorry, mibrnsurg, getting used to the enter key=post thing Smiley Happy. I actually found a map, I'll find the link and post it, that shows all the territories, and who gets what. As a Blackhawks fan that left TWC for U-Verse, I thought I was covered by CSN-CH, and was even told I was when I registered for service. Should have came here first. LOL I had a few heated conversations with outsoursed CS last Thursday and Yesterday . Thanks again for the solid info.

Re: Sorry, mibrnsurg, getting used to the enter key=post thin...

Here's my issue.  Since the NHL Network is not on Uverse I pay for NHL GameCenter Live to watch the Bruins, since I am a transplant living in Tennessee I can only see the games here when they are nationally broadcast and carried in this area.  Several times I've gone to watch a game and Gamecenter says it's not carrying the game since it's being broadcast in my area (on the NHL network).  Uverse you put us transplant hockey fans in a bad place.  Miss watching our teams or go back to Comcast.  I guess I'll miss out because I'm not going back to Comcast, but I won't stop looking for other alternatives.  PLEASE GET THE NHL NETWORK ON UVERSE!!!!

It was on Uverse, but they could not come to an agreement to continue it, probably NHL Network wanted too much money for ATT's taste.
