    I don't have premiums either. Only local, HD and dvr and not sure what package we have, but not the cheapest one. Seems like we've been getting a price hike every year lately.

    I've been looking at ditching it for the last 3-4 years, but.... :(

    I haven’t been able to get away from DirecTV as it’s been the only way to watch all Suns games on my big screen TV.

    Yeah, this is incredibly annoying...the only reason I subscribe to a streaming service is for Suns/DBacks.

    I work out of town and I have the NBA app. You can get league pass but you can get it for just one team. So mine is the suns of course and you have your choice of home or away broadcast

    it’s 60 bucks a year

    You've gotta be kidding me. That's the main reason I have youtubetv. Why are they pulling it? When does this go into effect?

    Were you in the Salt Lake area when you experienced that blackout? Curious why that would be but I suppose that could cause it, or if you have your billing address set as one in Utah so it uses the rules for blackouts based on Utah being your "home" team.

    I'm not sure why but no my billing address for my card is Arizona , and I was in Montana and DC during the year so maybe Montana had something to do with it but no clue

    This thread is different than what I thought it would be. /s

    I have league pass but I paid for regional sports on Dish for many years just to watch DBacks and Coyotes. This year (since July) has been tough.

    Hulu Live is 55 a month, and still has Fox Sports, for now anyway. I am considering switching to them.
