The TV Answer Man!

DIRECTV Now over the weekend incorrectly blacked out at least two Arizona Diamondbacks on Fox Sports Arizona despite protests from Arizona residents and Fox Sports Arizona itself.

Updated: The blackouts continued Monday night (May 15). @DIRECTVNowHelp told one upset Arizona customer to try using the Fox Sports app to watch the game rather than Fox Sports Arizona on the streaming service.

The live streaming service has experienced recurring problems with sports blackouts since its debut last November 30. Several NFL games were wrongly blacked out on local Fox affiliates one weekend, while MLB and NHL games have been incorrectly blacked out on both regional and national sports channels.

And starting May 11, DIRECTV Now began blacking out Fox Sports Arizona’s coverage of the Arizona Diamondbacks-Pittsburgh Pirates games in the Arizona market.
