My Phillies game on comcast sportsnet blacked out about 9:00.  The first call to tech support (I think it went to Vietnam) said that MLB blacked out the game.  The second call said the game was blacked out at first, but when I pressed for a manager to speak with, she said there was a problem with the line.  In neither case do I feel like anyone will try to do anything about it.

We had the same problem.  Will call tomorrow. You would think if more than 1 person is having this problem a lot of people would be. 

 

It is ridiculous that they could not get this corrected in an hour.

Same here.  I didn't call but I just read that someone who did was told that Comcast blacked out Verizon's feed.  fwiw.

The black out of last night's Phillies game was a technical error on part of Verizon.  We are unsure of the details but you can contact Verizon for more information.  Thank you for your interst in Comcast SportsNet.

Why did you block the Phillies game on Verizon Fios?

When I called Verizon tech support, I was told that Comcast blacked out the game due to low ticket sales.  Fine black it out for the home team, but not the visiting team.  I never heard of such a thing in baseball.
