Why is my Regional Sports Network (RSN) territory different from my cable RSN?


The area of in-market availability for each Regional Sports Network is determined by the companies, like Fox Sports Direct, that provide the RSNs to us. The constraints of C-band satellite systems, cable systems, and our system differ slightly, which is why RSN territories sometimes differ from one delivery system to the next.

Most people get the same RSN from us as they would from cable. But in some areas of the county, there are differences - your home RSN from us might be different from your home RSN on cable. This is because RSNs base their service on ZIP codes for satellite customers and on county boundaries for cable customers. This difference is necessary because of the technical differences in how the satellite and cable signals are distributed.
