Bobcats tv rights

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

ASHEVILLE – A total of 70 Charlotte Bobcats television games will be available to Charter subscribers in Western North Carolina beginning with tonight’s 8 p.m. season opener at Houston, a company spokesman said Tuesday.

The agreement with Fox Sports was confirmed by Patti Michel, Charter’s Director of Communications of the South Region.

 

Tonight’s game will be carried by SportSouth.

 

Fox Sports and Charter had been unable to reach a carriage agreement since Fox began its relationship with the Bobcats in November 2008. Charter subscribers had been blacked out of the Bobcats’ regional TV package for the previous five seasons.

 

The Bobcats have held a preseason training camp at UNC Asheville the past two Octobers and played the Atlanta Hawks earlier this month in an exhibition game at U.S. Cellular Center.

I live in Eastern NC.. "Rocky Mount area", just got DirecTV, will I be able to see the games??

 

Before this I had SuddenLink digital cable and I got Bobcats games on channel 121 (something like that) last season, didnt know we could get Bobcats games, until one day I was just scrolling through the channels and saw it. After the games went off, the channel would blackout.

every single bobcat game was shown on Dish last season. The games are not shown on the fox sportsouth channel  Your on the wrong channel.  The games are shown on various channels in the 440+ range.  How do I know this? I work for dish and watch the games last season.
