    You have to pay for the league pass, If not it will be blacked out no matter where you live.
    On the DSS, FOXSW is in the 600's but it doesn't matter cause when the game starts It shows on the 700's. If you buy the NBA ticket you'll see the game on both. If you don't buy the NBA pass, It won't show on either 600's or 700' channells. Same goes for f-ball, hockey and baseball.

    They black out all but the regional games in your area. You must have NBA League Pass in order to see all the games.

    I forgot that they black evrything out. They always forget to mention that when they trying to sell you all of these regional Fox channels. League Pass is definitely the way to go. For some of the more motivated memmbers of the BBS, you can learn how to reprogram your dish card and get them for free (DaDakota knows, but he ain't tellin). But trying to wade through all of the p*rn crap at the DSS-hack site makes it pretty much a waste of time. Good luck!

    Direct tV & NBA League Pass are necessary necessities.

    Sad indeed. I moved to a brand new apartment complex that said they'd be getting a master DirecTv dish installed. After waiting for about 1 month where they said "We're having problems settling a contract with the provider", I see Dish Network vans pull up. I died that day. No DirecTv, no NBA League Pass (although I hear it's on digital cable or something).

    I work for Time Warner Comm., and the NBA League Pass is available on Digital Cable in Houston. There are certain areas of Houston that are not able to order this service at this time, but most of Houston can. To find out if it is available in your area of Houston just call the Customer Service line for Time Warner and they will let you know.

    Wanted to delete my post, but don't have the ability, so I will just waste everyone's time with mindless dribble.

    Would he be doubly good if he wore Puma on one foot and Converse on the other? [​IMG]

    I have just regular Time Warner Cable. I have FoxSW so should I be able to watch it on there? Without having to get DirectTv etc?

    ------------------
    Francis out top, 9 seconds on the clock, he gives a no look pass to Cuttino Mobley, 4 seconds left, Mobley passes to an open Langhi in the corner with 1 second left! Langhi at the buzzer.......YES!!! How Sweet It Is!!

    Us, are you in Houston?

    If so, then yes, you will be able to watch the Rockets without DirecTv

    You know what pisses me off? I live in Austin and all the time during bball season FoxSW advertises that they'll be showing Rockets games, but every time I turn it on they're showing some bs motorcross or something. Bastards.

    I had a dream the other night. I dreamt that television and the internet had merged into a seamless infotainment medium.

    Rather than have programming dictated to me by corporations, I was able to choose what I wanted to watch, whenever I wanted and wherever I wanted.

    Just imagine,

    I'm hoping it happens before I move back to Australia or you can just call me Smeg.
