DirecTV picks up all of the RSNs, unless the RSN is a Time Warner concoction like the LA Dodgers situation. In the Upstate New York situation with DirecTV: 634 is MSG 635 is MSG+ 635-1 is MSG Buffalo 635-2 is MSG+2 635-3 is MSG2 In a situation where ALL teams including the Knicks are playing: 634 has the Knicks 635 has the Islanders or Devils 635-1 has the Sabres 635-2 has the Devils or Islanders 635-3 has the Rangers No blackouts would be occurring as all teams are "in-market". Cable does not have 5 dedicated channels. DirecTV does. A similar situation occurs in Charlotte. Spectrum (Time Warner) only has a few channels dedicated to sports, and they do not pick up MASN. We are deemed to be within Orioles and Nationals territory. MASN is their carrier. Charlotte's RSNs become very funky. 640 is MASN 646 is Fox Sports Southeast There are a whole bunch of 646-x subchannels, one is FS Carolinas, FS Tennessee, etc. 649 is another one. But because we share some overlap with Atlanta, occasionally channels are blacked out, when the Hawks play. But, we are also considered in the area for the Atlanta United soccer team, so those aren't blacked out. Even wackier is that because FS Southeast extends into Kentucky, and it is our "primary RSN", and that Kentucky is deemed Cincinnati Reds territory, Charlotte is a secondary market for the Reds (661 becomes an RSN - FS Cincinnati) I won't even get into how we are also a secondary for the Predators, but it doesn't create live blackout situations. I spend the extra $10 a month for the national sports package. Really interesting what is blacked out and when, and even more interesting is what ISN'T blacked out.
