I currently have DirectTV with the Total Choice HBO package. I live in NJ so my local sports network is MSG, which broadcasts the NY Knicks, NY Rangers, etc. MSG used to broadcast the majority of NY Yankees games (except for when they are on FOX), but now that the Yankees have their own channel (YES Network) I would prefer to have that in lieu of MSG. So far the YES Network is exclusive to DirectTV (according to the Yankees website) but when I called DirectTV they seemed clueless. After the woman put me on hold for about 20 minutes to speak to her supervisor she told me that I would have to pay an extra $10 per month to subscribe to their sports package to get the YES Network. I explained to her that I live in the NY area and receive all NY stations so would it be possible to substitute the YES Network for MSG. This confused her even more and she stated since they wont begin offering the YES Network until March 19th that I would have to call back then. Has anyone run into anything similar? Does my request seem outrageous? Am I just wasting my time and should I just suck it up and pay the extra $10 a month? It just seems pretty unfair to me.
