Bobcats tv rights

43 posts in this topic

If you live in or near Charlotte you should be okay unless you have Dish. Although Charter is only showing 70 games.

I have ATT Uverse which outside some earlier issues with hardware has been awesome.

Just a couple of days ago the games weren't even showing up in the channel guide (it is shown on an alternate channel that is off air except for Bobcats games) I got nervous and called them to make sure I would still get it.

They said they show Bobcats games in all of the Carolinas. I assume that means SC as well.

Sure enough, yesterday it showed up in the guide so I should be good.

I live in Raleigh.

I made this same thread pretty much every year until last season. I live outside of Raleigh and have DirecTV. Never could see the games. Even started seeing them on thd guide, but then they were blacked out.

Then I tweeted Steve Martin, our play by play guy, and he contacted the provider for me and a bunch of other guys and every game started showing up. I needed a new pair of pants. It was awesome. If I was you, and there's no guarantees it will work, tweet steve with your zip and your provider and see what he can do.

Do you have direct TV or Dish?

 

 

 

Time Warner Cable.

 

 

 

 

It's crazy that in this day and age, I'll willing to spend a couple of hundred bucks a year to watch some basketball games, and no one will take my money.

I have Dish in Charlotte and I get all the games.

 

There was only one pre season game on the package is why you did not pick the games up. The games showed up on the guide cause its for league pass so unless you had that you would not of got them. 

 

There is multiple channels on Dish that will have the game broadcast on and you have to find the correct channel to get the game so there will be like 4 channels with the game and you have to find the correct one which can be a hassle cause its a different channel each game.

Here is the deal Chubs. This has nothing to do with the Bobcats organization there is an issue with providers.

Dish Network reached an impasse with Fox Sports in 2010 that has yet to be resolved so they black out games. It has been 3 years so it doesn't look good.

Charter was having the same issue for 5 years but finally this off season Charter and Fox worked out an agreement so 70 games will be shown by Charter this year.

DirectTV should carry every game in your area.

And ATT Uverse will have every game.

I am not sure where you are in your Dish contract, but sometimes competing providers will help you pay an early termination fee if you switch.

U Verse does not have contracts.

Hope this helps

Wow really. I just switched from charter bc they always blacked them out. So your telling me that now they are actually gonna show them. Of course lol. That's my luck
