    I need some advice. I was checking out Dish Network's "Multisports" package which says that it includes all the Fox Regional channels, BUT are subject to blackouts. Can anyone tell me how bad they can be. The only blackouts we get here in Portland are when the NBA Blazers are the local station, they are blacked-out on TBS if its a national broadcast. I am curious to know what blackouts I would encounter from Comcast or the Sunshine network; I mean how bad can it really be?

    I don't know all of the details (and have DirecTV, not Dish), but you won't get the MLB, NBA, NHL, college football and possibly hoops from the Fox regional channels - they're ppv and thus blacked-out. Some days it seems like the whole thing is blacked-out.

    I don't even bother with the regional channels - I just got the DirecTV sports pack for FSW. Heck, just about the only stations I watch out of my 130+ are FSW and the History Channel.
