Out here in Iowa, the only times I would get STO on Direct TV was when a Tribe game was broadcast as part of the MLB Ticket. Then, like manna from heaven, STOs coverage, pre and post game, started to appear during the MLB post season. Yippee!
I continue to get STO programming except for rebroadcasts of Tribe games from this recent season and from past seasons. They are blocked. I am curious as to why STO is showing up out here in the corn and soybean desert that is Iowa and why the Tribe rebroadcasts are not.
If anyone has insights on this parachial topic I would be happy to hear about it. I have forsaken atttempts at communicating with Directv as an exercise in futilty.
