Hello! to all our customers
A live Bellator 300: Nurmagomedov vs. Primus Commercial only and HD only broadcast is scheduled on Saturday (10/07/23) at 10pm ET.
Main event fighters are subject to change.
The Showtime East HD network turnaround source will be scheduled for this live Showtime HD only Bellator broadcast offered to DIRECTV Commercial subscribers.
A generic pre-event HD slide will be scheduled for Showtime Bellator MMA Series Commercial only/HD only broadcasts (similar to “Showtime Boxing Series” Commercial only/HD only broadcasts).
It’s BAU for commercial customers/establishments.
Regarding visual/on-screen cues…
If Commercial subscribers don’t see the pre-event slide on Saturday prior to the live Bellator MMA broadcast at 10pm ET (and they encounter a black screen), then they haven’t purchased/aren’t authorized for the event…or it’s possible issues may be taking place specific to a commercial account or commercial location such as faulty equipment, a dormant receiver, configuration, or other reason.
If HD channel 9537 isn’t present in the program guide at a particular establishment then perhaps the program guide isn’t correctly enabled to view HD channels or a customer isn’t properly set-up and locked-in to a satellite signal.
Commercial establishments should be able to confirm HD channel 9537 is available in the program guide in advance of Saturday’s live Bellator MMA broadcast.
The recommendation is for Commercial establishments to proactively confirm they are authorized/purchased events as soon as they possibly can.
