This sucks!

I have the Direct TV extra innings package. Every time the Bucs played the Astros in the past, I knew that it would be blacked out on those channels and I had to watch it on my local Astros sports station, (Fox Sports Southwest, later Fox Sports Houston).

Well for months now the Astros and Rockets have been fighting with all the tv providers (Dish, Direct TV, Time Warner etc.) as they are changing their sports channel to Comcast Sports Network, a division of NBC. During the Rockets run to the playoffs only about 20% of Houston area households were able to watch them, those that had Comcast Cable, and they still have no deal.

So now, I am blacked out for the Bucs Astros, but I have NO LOCAL SPORTS CHANNEL on Direct Tv anymore to over ride it.

This sucks!
