Currently in Aurora CO (Low 46 Mostly Sunny High 74) 

We subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket from DirecTV to make sure we see the Kansas City Chiefs.

Usually we get the games without a hitch either on a NFL Sunday Ticket channel or our Network feeds or over the air but today we ran into something we haven't seen before. Whether the game is blacked out or not Channel 702 has NFL GameMix where all the games are on.

When you tune to the channel only then do you find it is blacked out. Bob hurriedly called DirecTV and found out it was on a local channel in Phoenix and that was our current service address. We don't normally change our service address if we are traveling every week. So we are standing in front of the TV watching the game on a real small window while they change our service address to Aurora Colorado. Once that was setup we recorded the game and stopped watching live. We have a big sports night ahead of us, finish the Chiefs game and then watch the Kansas City Royals (also recorded) in the playoffs. Let's hope for two wins today.

Another thing for Bob to remember to do is to change our service address each week so this does not happen again.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

  1. We had the same thing happen to us our first year with baseball channels. We got sick of calling them each time we moved. We now kept our Canton zip and get all the Cleveland Indians games. Crazy.
