    Could be... I called to gripe about it the year before last, and that's what they told me.

    I get the hour of Sportsbeat on weeknights, the Mike Tomlin show, Pgh sports tonight, and obviously the PCs'... Not to mention many college football games. ... There is also a Sunday night show (10pm I believe) that is hosted by Tunch that re-caps the game.

    Yeah Frank, I don't know what they told you, but if you at least have a Choice Package,
    you could just go online and order it. It will be activated almost immediately.

    im not sure if im going to order it. baseball season doesnt end till sep then the pens season starts so im not really sure if its worth it for me since im not in the area, although it is only 12 bucks a month

    I live 30 miles north of the Burgh so I get it no matter what. To me it's a necessity for hockey season but just to get it to watch boring Stan Savran's show or Pittsburgh Sports Tonight is not worth it in my opinion.

I don't have any interest in baseball only the Steelers so help me out.
    Costanza,

    I thought it was worth it for Steelers news until they started blacking out the press conferences on Tuesdays and not letting me see the preseason games even though I pay for Ticket and the sports package. I wouldn't suggest it for ya. I really get better news here than I would with Sports Beat through out the week. Alot of times Savran talks about the Pens anyways, plus he is terrible.

    For someone like me I hate not being able to see the presser at noon, I just don't understand the concept of blacking it out! I can almost understand the preseasons games b/c of markets and all the stuff but the press conference? What is the sense in that?
