    Does anyone know where I can find this damn channel on Dish Network? The wife signed us up for these guys, and I cannot find this station anywhere. When I talked to the representatives on the phone, they told me I would have it, but I cannot find it anywhere!!!! Help please!

    It is 416 but I don't always get FSH. Sometimes I get the Dallas feed, but I am in Beaumont. I do get the live game feeds from FSH on the alt channels. usually somewhere between 444 and 449. I just have to search for it. The other thing I have noticed is that I can even get the games that are My20, on teh alt channels usually.

    I think the games are on the alternative sports channels. Use your guide button and scan through the 400's when you're looking for an Astros or Rockets game.

    This upcoming season (if there is one) for the Rockets, games will now be on Comcast SportsNet instead of FSN... same goes with the Astros. They will likely be in the 400s though -- same place as FSN.

    I can't find it in the 400's, are you sure FOX Sports channel is accessible on Dish Network?

    I ususally find it between 440 to 460. It is usually 446 or 444. The official fox sports is 416 but the game rarely comes on that channel

    If you have dish press # and then search rockets. You will find the channel quite easily

    Rednation,

    Thanks for reply. Unfortunately I don't see 441. When I tell my HD receiver to show all channels it goes from 404, 405,406,407 then skips to 454. All in between nothing shows in my channel guide. When I search I only see it on NBATV (560) which I don't subscribe too. What subscription with DN do you have?

    I checked my package and I currently have "America's Top 120". What does everyone else have in Houston that gets the 400s?

    Looks like you need to upgrade by five bucks for the 120 plus to get regional sports. The Dish rep was wrong.

    Okay, I will be calling tomorrow to make sure I get 120+. Just want to confirm that the extra 5 bucks will allow me to watch the rockets play the rest of season.
