Looked in my channel guide tonight and found that channel 88 was active, showing the Yankees/Red Sox game. So I turned to it and got a directv message saying "Program not available in your area." Sounds like a blackout message, but if that were true, wouldn't I be getting the same message on channel 388/389? I'm near Richmond VA, which I'm pretty sure is not a Fox O&O market - are only O&O markets getting the HD channels?

This is not confirmed. These broadcasts are to the O and O stations when the actual channels come onboard it should be those of us who have 388 and 389 should get them as well.

Please, anybody! Tell us what the requirements are so that some of us can go to sleep for the evening. I live in a DMA with one only O&O Fox station which is about 125 miles away. I have a waiver from that O&O station for Fox LA and NY and I have the HD package. There are no other Fox stations in my DMA. But the CSR said at around 11:30 tonight I can't and won't get Ch. 88. I'm confused.

The only thing you can do is to call DirecTV and see what can be done.

I was not referring to the FOX HD channels when they are added--I expect that those with 388/389 will get them. I was simply referring to the baseball coverage, which yesterday was O&O only.

I knew that but when you stated channels that could imply to others the actual fox hd channels. This was no more or less the a channel 84 game except they used the O and O justification for those of us who didnt receive it.
