Not sure that's true. I still get NESN in Georgetown, as far as I know. Granted, I just got home last night after a month away, but I'd be surprised if this isn't just a Penn Quarter Sports Tavern issue.
I will check my DirecTV when I get home around 2pm.
All kinds of ironies for me this week - watched Minnesota v. Notre Dame on NESN in my Minneapolis place Tuesday, and hoped to watch the UNH game at PQST tonight because I can see it from my office!!
Hope the NESN thing is just a PQST issue.
