Direct TV update

This was on the Sons of Sam Horn this afternoon:

I called Major League Baseball directly and they tell a different story.

They claim that NESN will not pay the licensing fees on highlights outside of the New England viewing area to MLB so NESN is now blacking out all pre and post game coverage of games along with other Red Sox related highlight shows during the week to anyone outside of New England instead of paying the extra fees

If this is true, I hate NESN. I've opened an email conversation with one of their customer service reps, and forwarded this to her. We'll see the enemy's response. I mean, the only reason I pay for Direct TV is to get Red Sox baseball - it's definitely not for Camo Country or the Mad Fisherman!
