RSN's (Regional Sports Networks)

It slightly confuses me that the Regional Sports Network in the Pittsburgh area is not included in the Directv Now line-up (RootSports). After all it is fully owned by AT&T/Direct TV and is part of the AT&T Sports Network. In fact, none of the AT&T Sports Network RSN's are included in the Directv Now line-up. Is there a reasonable answer? On a side note when inputting a Pittsburgh area zip code in your LocalChannel/RSN Lookup utility it lists FS Ohio as the local RSN, this could not be further from the truth.

Hello,

 

We appreciate the tremendous response and love for DIRECTV NOW. We have great information to help identify your regional sports networks (RSN). This tool identifies your RSN networks by zip code.

 

Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) are included when you subscribe to a DIRECTV NOW Just Right package or above. RSNs air professional and collegiate sports, as well as domestic and international amateur sports, on networks like Fox Sports, Comcast Sportsnet, etc.

To confirm your package:


1.Sign in to your DIRECTV NOW account.
2.In your User Account, select Manage My Plan.


RSNs and your location


Local channels aren’t available when you travel outside of your billing zip code and metro area. So, if you travel to a market outside your billing zip code, local channels and RSNs will be unavailable to watch.

Remember, you only can watch the RSN or local station while the following match:


•Your billing zip code
•Your current location when streaming from a device

 

RSNs by broadcast area


Some sporting events may only be eligible for viewing in certain viewing areas. For example, if the NBA sells broadcasting rights to MSG for a Knicks game in the New York City market, only customers in that local market can watch the Knicks games on MSG.

 

Although networks like TNT provide national coverage and permit sports events to be broadcast throughout the country, those networks may restrict showings where an RSN is also broadcasting the same event.

 

Be sure to:

 

  • Enable location services on your device 
  • Disable your VPN service, if one is being used. This can affect your location as well causing unexpected errors.
  • Test off Wi-Fi. If you have a mobile device.

We are monitoring this thread. Please post any solutions/ troubleshooting steps you have tried.

 

Please visit these links for additional information about your channel lineup and pricing and local channel availability details. Check out this article for Blackout Information.

Hello,

I signed up this morning for DirecTV Now. I get my primary RSN channel of Fox Sports North but the overflow channel of Fox Sports North Plus is nowhere to be found.

Why isn't the overflow channel included? Is this an error? Will it be added shortly?

I live in San Antonio and it says I have Fox Sports Southwest, but I can't find the channel.  BTW I can't believe you couldn't get any local channels for San Antonio...Fox, ABC or NBC.

I am disappointed to see that Root Sports Rocky Mountain is not included in the regional sports. This is surprising since AT&T owns Root Sports. This is the only thing missing from the promotional package for us (well and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries(for the wife) is "mysteriously" only in the cheapest package, but not included in the other packages??).

 

Will Root Sports Rocky Mountain be included in the near future?
