OK, OK hear me out first, here is the deal:
For those of you here in Portland or the 150 mile blackout area and have directv and want to get league pass, but will not due to the fact that you are unable to see Blazer games, or already have league pass and would like to see Blazer games (kinda important, right?)

Move to Burns
Now of course you will not physically move to Burns but your billing address will.
Looking on directv.com, if you put in Burns zip code, 97720 it shows that you will get Portland local channels and even as the crow flies, it is 225+ miles from PDX and 300 by car, far enough to be out of the blackout area, yet just close enough to get local pdx channels.
I just got done chatting with directv and they said that they have no way of knowing where the actual unit is, only where the billing address is. People who have dish on their RVs travel all over the country and get the same channels regardless of where they are geographically, the only thing that matters is the billing zip. Just be sure to unhook your reciever from the phone line and you should be set.
Just make up an address and you should be fine.
Gotta love the internet and paperless billing.
