And then Bonds goes and hits number 755. Couldn’t watch it. Bunch of fuckers at DirectTV and MLB.

Damn Blackout Rules

Posted in Mobile on August 4th, 2007

I’m in a hotel in San Francisco waiting to fly down to Siggraph tomorrow in San Diego. And I want to watch Bonds take his whacks at the home run record. And of course, I can’t. Because DirectTV has the game blacked out. Why? Most likely because the game is on a local station out here. But due to some quirk of DirectTV and my hotel, I’m not getting the local station that has the rights to the game. I think. I’ve got no idea if my theory is actually right. But whatever the situation is, it sucks. This is just one more example of why people hate content providers. When you take actions that make it hard for people to get content that they want, they are going to resentful. And resentful customers are never customers long (if at all). Situations like this just increase the bias I have against getting DirectTV, even though cable is more expensive.
