Hi guys. I live in Marshall County, Ky., west of the lakes and out of the Nashville TV market, but we've got a local cable provider that picks up SportsSouth broadcasts. I'm thinking of switching to Dish Network, but I understand there was some issue with Kentucky viewers trying to watch games this year on Dish.
1. What was the issue, and was it throughout the regular season or just the playoffs?
2. If I were to switch to Dish and order NHL Center Ice, would the blackout restriction apply to me since there's a provider in the area that offers Predators games on a standard channel?
I ask here because I have no faith in Dish Network's ability to actually tell me the truth, and attempts to contact In Demand Sports (Center Ice people) have failed so far.
Posting this here and on the predators.com message board in the hopes that I find another local fan who can help.
Thanks. Go Preds.
