Frequently asked questions

A handful of regional sports networks have recently shut down or changed owners, and nearly 20 others are struggling financially. That’s led a few NHL (3), NBA (3), and MLB (2) teams to recently move their local TV rights to new networks or local broadcast stations available to different regions than before. We’re working with these teams, leagues, and new rightsholders to make games available to fans who may want them as this transition occurs.

At least for now, this only affects a few teams: (i) the NHL’s Golden Knights, Pittsburgh Penguins and Arizona Coyotes, (ii) the NBA’s Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets and (iii) the MLB’s San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks – these two teams moved to league-operated channels that DIRECTV immediately made available earlier this year. There are several ways to find and keep track of a favorite team and find any new channels offering games:

(1) Using the search function in the on-screen guide.  

(2) Customers with Gemini receivers can set their team as a “favorite” and the guide will list potential ways to watch upcoming games.  

(3) Go to our sports schedule and enter your zip code for current options.

Each league mandates “home” territories for its local franchises to help preserve each one’s local fan base. The teams then enter into rights agreements with various networks, local broadcast stations, or streaming partners to offer their games to fans who live inside that specific geographic region. A stand-alone channel, like an RSN or league-operated service, will typically cover a territory determined by the league, Within the territory, fans with eligible service and programming, can watch the local franchise. When teams opt for local broadcast coverage, the patchwork of signals may not reach some fans who typically live on the outskirts of that league-mandated territory. Most teams have created new streaming services to try to accommodate any displaced fans.
