Just read this over at sportsfan.org and I’m pissed. This goes beyond cord cutting issues. You can apparently subscribe to DirecTV, Time Warner Cable, Dish and even AT&T’s crummy U-verse and still not get to see week 3 of the Chargers if you live in SoCal.
As far as I know you have three choices here:
1. Pay $79+ for a ticket and attend.
2. Drive somewhere out of the market and watch it. Yuma AZ anyone?
3. Catch it with an illegal bootleg streaming service.
I hate to recommend # 3, but this black out thing just doesn’t make sense does it? The question is how many additional attendees will be at the game because they couldn’t get it on TV. Going to the game live is such a huge commitment I just bet that number is tiny.
