Advertisements Live in the Portland, ME area. On Spectrum we got notice a short while ago that we were now getting ESPN Sports Extra. Lived in CT most of my life so I like to watch UCONN women's BB. On the ESPN Sports Extra site it shows today's game and you can see a blackout map and Maine is listed as a area that can get the game - no blackout. When I tune to the game station it displays blacked out in your area. So ESPN website wrong or is Spectrum blocking this. To add to my confusion - when I watch on a laptop via ESPN3 stuff I can get the game and it has local Portland area ads. Must be a very complex path to block but then have local ads. The whole blackout thing is crazy - I can stream but can't watch on a TV station - I know this is how it is but crazy.
