Correction: This article previously stated that Padres games were not broadcasted on DirecTV last year. This is incorrect. Padres games were shown on DirecTV, but Fox Sports San Diego was not a full-time sports network with DireccTV. While Padres games were broadcasted, other sporting events and programs shown on Fox Sports San Diego were not available. We regret this error.

    Ummm….directv carried Padres games last year too. Where are you getting your information??

    DirecTV has carried the channel part-time. Beginning April 1st, the channel will be full time. This mostly means that it will be easier to set DVRs. Also, from time to time they would forget to broadcast Padres POV or Padres Weekly. They only broadcasted Cup of Coffee with Enberg like once or twice. Also, will be able to view replay broadcasts if you forgot to DVR live broadcast (or don’t have a DVR).

    Ok, what if there is a conflict with a Clippers or Ducks game and a padres game? Do these games get bumped and are not shown?
