    except for a very few preseasons games, both are the same assuming you are getting the sports package and also getting ESPN and TNT.

    All you need is ATT sports to get Rockets and Astros along with your standard cable channels of TNT and BSPN.

    none of the basic cable package will include local sports channels.

    For Comcast, I believe you can add a sports channel package and thats 10 extra bucks or you must have at least the preferred channels package (something like over 200 channels) to get this channel included.

    I am pretty sure AT&T has the similar package.

    There are other options also.

    Such as something called FUBOL?

    I think its like a soccer sporting package and somehow AT&T sportsnet is included in such package, the cost stand alone is at least 40 bucks I believe.

    AT&T sportsnet is part of the regular package for Comcast. You don't need to pay extra to watch them.

    Comcast or ATT will have all of the games if you are getting the digital cable package EXCEPT NBATV games. You'll need to buy up to get NBATV.

    Comcast is a pain in the azz. Every year they raise the rate and you have to call and beg them to lower it down again. Get used to talking to the so called "loyalty" people!

    I think you mean FuboTV... Streaming service for cordcutters who are sports fans. I did the 14 day free trial... I liked it, but ended up going with Hulu+ LiveTV. The U/I was a little wonky and missing some channels my wife was interested in. But yeah... A nice package for 50$ a month. Every sports channel you can think of... cloud based DVR.

    If you do go full streaming make sure your IP doesn't have a data cap...
