    You know what I am freaking sick of?

    ESPN blocking the Minnesota Twins game for Mediacom customers in Des Moines. I DO NOT ******* GET THE ******* STATION THAT CARRIES THE TWINS. There is no need to bock them out for me.

    You would think with all of the technology at ESPN's disposal, they could figure out how to block Mediacom in Mason City (or whatever towns get FSN North) and not in Des Moines. I do not get FSN North.

    Re: You know what I am freaking sick of?

    I have been telling my wife all day that the one thing I want to do is watch this game - and then this **** happens! I checked black-out rules all day just to make sure this game doesn't apply - how can FSN North carry this game when they are in LA??? It should be subject to the local LA black-out meaning that I should be able to watch the game on ESPN 2. I've been debating it, but I'm sold now - I'm switching to Directv!

    Edit: I guess it's not on FSN North either - I'm still cancelling mediacom

    That sucks man. It's on the local WFTC station

    Here's a link from channelsurfing, but it looks like it wants you to download a plugin

    Watch MLB

    and complaining about it seems like the only logical solution? call a satellite provider and tell them you would like to sign up for their service and want it to include the sports extra package that features all of the FSN channels (it does on direcTV anyway). It's that easy! or, move to minnesota. having a hissy fit and wearing out the language filter on here probably isn't going to un-blackout ESPN now is it?

    At least if I switch to Directv I can get FSN North and watch most of the home games.

    you can update your package in about 5 minutes over the phone for and extra 9.99 a month. if this happens all the time as above stated than I'm guessing it would be worth it.

    MLB has the absolute worst blackout rules.

    Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.
