What is Regional Sport Coverage

What is Regional Sport Coverage.  I don't see that that is true.  Pac 12 games are not available.  That would be Regional.

Please give an example of Regional Sport Coverage.

Does explain why it is a separate cost each month

Re: What is Regional Sport Coverage

The RSN fee on the bill does not change each month, but there was recent change in many RSN costs. So in the last few months you should have seen it go from the old to the new rate. It is based on your service address, so if you move you might end up with a different RSN fee.

 

Pac-12 games show on a variety of different networks including ESPN as they are not exclusive to RSN channels or the Pac-12 Network. See www.directvpromise.com and click Pac 12 for more info.

 

From www.directv.com

 

"We offer Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) from across the nation, which show professional, college, and both domestic and international amateur sports (such as soccer, tennis, boxing, golf, rugby, winter sports, etc.), as well as coaches shows and other specialized programming.

Based on your ZIP code, you have been assigned in-market local RSNs on which you are authorized to view the pro and college games shown on that channel. Due to contractual broadcast rights between the networks and the leagues, those who live outside of your area are not authorized to view the same games. The opposite is true in that you are unable to see pro sports on out-of-market RSNs."
