    are all the rockets games broadcast in the houston area (except for those that might be on national tv)?

    i'm an out of town fan thinking of getting a extra cable box at my parents house in houston and hooking a slingbox up to it so i can watch the local broadcast in nyc or where ever. it might even be cheaper than the nba package.

    any help?

    Yep.

    All Rockets games (when they're not shown on National television) are either shown on FSN Houston or KNWS.

    Don't get a slingbox, get a Hava, same thing, but better quality and features.

    I have one, it rocks...


    Another option for you would be get your parents to sign up for league pass and just use their sign up to watch the games on your computer over the internet.

    They still have the local feed when the game goes national........so you can stick with bill worrell, then check what walton is saying and go back to the local feed when you get pissed.

    NBA TV is blocked out when the rox play though.

    it wouldnt work because if his folks lived in houston all the houston online broadcasts and archived games would be blacked out. he is better off getting league pass in his own area or if he doesnt have cable/sat trying to split the costs with someone outside of the houston area. they'd obviously get to watch it on tv and he'd be able to get the leaguepass broadband.

    Bushi. Im from Australia and only got to watch about half the games last year because of school commitments. i just had a few questions about NBA league pass. I was wondering if i could get it here in Aus and if i can doesn it take up my download limit. Because at the moment using TVU player and Sopcast is chewing into my DL limit and im getting capped very easily.

    Advice would be appreciated :)

    Thanks Mate.

    Anyone know if some of the Rockets games will be in HD, when not on TNTHD? Since they did it for the Astros, it makes me wonder if they'll do it for a winning team. :) Makes a better difference in basketball than baseball, IMO.
