Default TV coverage

As of October 23, 2020 Fox Sports Southwest is no longer available on streaming services such as fubotv, Sling, YouTubeTV, or Hulu + live TV, though it is still available on AT&T TV NOW.

Typically pre covid, I would see the games in person but many would watch from home anyway. Now the big corporate media people are screwing us and my unrealistic hope is the next tier 3 contract and really all media contracts focus more on exposure. I remember Hockey being more concerned with dollars over exposure and it cost them while the NBA exploded. Nothing will slow down OU football but there is a cost to ignoring the other sports.

That would definitely affect my decision to cut the cord in the future.

I cut it years ago but I'm also thinking about recruiting out of state. The regional networks are losing exposure. I would think the University would want OU games of any sport available from coast to coast.

My sister has Uverse and 2 or 3 weeks ago, she lost access to FSOK for no apparent reason. It took 2 or 3 phone calls to get them to fix it.

FSSW is really only about the lower profile non con games ..

The FSOK option here in Houston on ATT Uverse 200 has provided me with almost every patsy non conference game since Kruger has been here, along with other great Sooner content. I've been very grateful for it, and I actually didn't switch to Direct TV(other reasons also) because the Direct TV people looked at me like I had 10 heads when I asked them if the DTV package had it. That and the fact that Direct TV freezes if anyone even sneezes in the direction of the dish. Like 4 or so years ago they made it sound like Uverse was going eaten by DTV and gone by now. Anyway, hangin on!

I did see where the Central Florida game is on that stinkin ESPN plus. Any way we get a replay of it on FSOK?

Here in NYC, I lost the Fox regional sports channels a year or so ago; Spectrum stopped carrying them when they were sold. It's frustrating because they were my only access to coaches shows, the Huddle, and other Sooner programming. Now I have to pay for SoonersportsTV (though I only do so during football and basketball season).

Any word yet on whether any of our games will be shown on ESPN+ this season?

Looks like Central Florida is the one nonconference game on ESPN+.

Dish quit carrying the Fox regional games about a year ago. I refuse to pay Soonersports.tv. I pay plenty in donations for season tickets. I just won’t see all the games. What all universities don’t realize once you can’t see a few games it gets much easier to not watch the others.
All the in house broadcasters are weak in my opinion. Glorified cheerleaders who make a bunch of noise.

I'm not sure anything is live on SoonerSportsTV.

They have TV info for some of the games here:
https://soonersports.com/sports/mens...le?path=mbball

I have a question about Hulu+Live, AT&T TV Now and YouTube TV. All three seem to carry FSSW, but are they limited regionally? Would I have to live in the southwest to receive FSSW via those services?

I'm thinking a free trial of each would allow me to see our three FSSW games in the early season, but I don't want to bother if that network won't be available to me on those services in NYC.

Below is what I found posted late October. Those services had FSSW earlier in the year. Sinclair acquired the RSN's and doesn't want to play nice.

Sometimes it pays to live in a small television market. DirectTV in Ada is showing the game will be broadcast on our usual channel for FSOK at 7:00 Wednesday evening. Assuming that is correct, I set our DVR to record the game.

Thanks, sorry for the out-of-date info I shared.

FSSW has remained available to DirecTV subscribers who live in the southwest (Oklahoma, Texas, etc.) and subscribe to the DTV Regional Sports Networks package (around $14-$16 per month). However, due to the ever-increasing prices (my DTV bill was averaging around $175.00 per month), I finally cut the cord a couple of months ago.

I am now streaming exclusively. I pay approximately $65 per month for YouTubeTV, which gives me most of the channels I watched on DTV, including all ESPN channels, Fox Sports 1 and 2, and all four broadcast networks, plus a few other random sports channels. I was counting on being able to get FSSW when I purchased YouTubeTV, but I suppose that is no longer an option, according to what I read above.

It's looking more and more like my Sooner basketball viewing will be limited to games televised by the ESPN networks, Fox Sports 1 or 2, or the four broadcast networks. Anyone know of any other options?

Soonersports sub.

As far as DirectTV, you have to be clear on the distinction between FSSW and FSOK. They are similar in lots of programming, but FSOK has all the OU programming. Again, FSSW has much of it too, but there's quite a bit that isn't shown. For Uverse at least here in Houston, there are like 5 Fox Sports Southwest affiliates:

1751--FSOK--Gets all the OU content
1753--FSSW--Has a Houston accent and Houston sports will override OU
1755--FSSW--Has a Dallas emphasis and will show Mavericks and Dallas hockey over OU stuff
1756--FSSW--Houston
1757--FSSW alternate--Will show OU stuff sometimes.

When I looked at the DirectTV lineup(at least 3 years ago) they didn't have the Oklahoma option, which again is what shows all the OU content and early non conference OU basketball games.

You are not. Received an email response from a person in the department, games will not stream live but will be available soon or shortly after.

Yes, I misspoke. Thanks for clarifying, Stikboy.

Actually, the DTV subscribers in the Oklahoma-Texas area receive both FSOK and FSSW, since both are considered the regional Fox Sports channels for this region. Like you stated, much of the content on FSOK and FSSW is the same, but FSOK has even more Sooner sports programming than FSSW.

What I meant to say was, DTV customers who subscribe to the Sports Package also receive every one of the Fox RSN channels. If I recall correctly, there are something like 20 or so of them, plus others like LHN, SEC network YES, NESN, etc. Occasionally, an OU men's or women's basketball game will be shown on one or more of the RSNs outside of our area and not on FSOK or FSSW.

I wasn't trying to correct you, and thanks for the information. You're saying that DTV in Houston has FSOK? That's good because when I was asking their experts they had no idea. Glad to know if I am forced to switch to DTV it will still be available. Is it the basic package or is there some higher tier you have to order within DTV to get it?

Edit: I see you said sports package(which I assume is extra) gets all Fox RSNs. But is FSOK also on the basic plan?

FSOK is free (just a figure of speech) to every DTV subscriber in Oklahoma, and at least some parts of Texas, no matter which DTV plan you subscribe to (basic or otherwise). At least one RSN is provided to EVERY DTV subscriber, based on which part of the nation you live.

Here in S.E. Oklahoma, where I live, DTV subscribers receive several of the RSNs, even if we don't pay extra for the full sports package. I received FSOK, FSSW, and if I recall correctly, whichever RSN serves Houston, San Antonnio and even one that serves the Kansas City area.

I wish I knew for certain, but I can't say for sure that customers in Houston receive FSOK as part of their basic package. I AM fairly certain that you would receive FSSW, which shows many, if not most, of the live Sooner sports that are shown on FSOK. As I stated previously, you receive every one of the RSNs if you are willing to pay the extra $14-$16 per month for the DTV sports package. I should note, however, that the pro sports like MLB will still be blacked out for you on the RSNs that are outside of the region in which you live.

A few years ago I added the sports package to my DTV subscription. The reason I was willing to pay extra (for a while, at least) was because some Sooner basketball and softball games would occasionaly be televised by one of the RSNs outside of our region, and not on FSOK or FSSW. But like I said in a previous post, the cost of doing business with DTV simply got out of hand for existing customers like myself. For new customers, however, DTV is usually willing to negotiate and give you a great deal. That all changes, however, after your initial two-year commitment expires.
