Then you won't get the games on NFL Sunday ticket. Just make sure you get the local channels package, so you can get the games.

They don't black out any games in my area. Even if their on the local national channels. No I do not get locals through direct, they don't have them for this area. But I get all channels with a smallish antenna.
Any uhf/vhf antenna will work for digital hd over the air channels too. You don't need any "special" ant. to pick them up.

that may be because your not in an area claimed by a team. I have always had a game blacked out. Here, it is San Fran and Oakland games (no big loss)!!

Here its denver, seattle or one of the california teams. Which ever one is doing the best will be the one we end up with. Probably the chargers again.

That's why, your not in a designated area for a specific team probably.

DirecTV is kind of random in implementing its SundayTicket blackout policy.

They are supposed to black out whatever games are being carried on the local channels, be it the home franchise (Falcons here in ATL) or whatever non-local teams are being carried, since DirecTV does not carry the local commercials and argubaly detracts from the local stations ratings.

It is pretty hit or miss as to whether the non-local team games are blackd out on the dish, given that those games change at the last minute, which results in unpleasant scenes for DirecTV customer service such as when I have called in an uproar about the Steelers not being on local TV or SundayTicket.
