    Finally jumped to DISHNETWORK and ditched cable. Its GREAT, especially with the built in TiVo-like service. [​IMG] I have one question that perhaps someone can answer. I went to the page on their site about sports blackouts and I'm still a bit confused, even after reading all their scenarios. Let me present my own. I live in the NYC metro area and my local sports networks are MSG and Fox Sports New York. Let's say I subscribed to the multisport package and got all the Fox Sports Nets. There is a game going on in Colorado: Avalanche vs. LA Kings. Neither team is from my "local area". Would that game be blacked out for me? Or could I watch it on Fox Sports--Rocky Mountain? Thanks.
