Re: Where are the regional sports networks?
Looks like it is all over but the crying! Just got off chat with DIRECTV NOW and they don't have a clue what everyone is having a problem with. There should be FOX SPORTS SOUTHWEST (or whatever region your in) alternate/overflow channels when games are played simultaneously. Sling TV does offer this, as does regular satellite DIRECTV.
Fox Sports Networks subfeeds and alternate / overflow feeds
Some Fox Sports affiliates maintain subfeeds to eliminate scheduling conflicts when two teams that the individual network has rights to are playing at the same time, in order to air both games at once. Fox Sports affiliates that operate these alternate feeds are:
|Root Sports Rocky Mountain||Root Sports Utah|
|Fox Sports South||Fox Sports Tennessee|
Fox Sports Carolinas
|Fox Sports Southwest||Fox Sports Oklahoma|
Fox Sports New Orleans
Some Fox Sports affiliates have alternate (or overflow) feeds for the same purpose, named after the host network with "Plus" as a suffix (for example, Fox Sports Detroit Plus). In most cases, subfeeds and alternate feeds are only used during live game telecasts, and are replaced with the main feed's programming the rest of the time; however, these alternate feeds may provide sports-related programming (such as analysis programs that are not aired as a pre-game or post-game show) which may be exclusive to that feed.
Some affiliates once operated merely as subfeeds, but have since become full-fledged regional channels in their own right. Fox Sports Kansas City and Fox Sports Indiana were once subfeeds of Fox Sports Midwest, and Fox Sports Wisconsin once operated as a subfeed of Fox Sports North.
