I am getting direct tv on friday I want to know if I will be getting fsn or not. Can you get it on the choice package or do you have to pay exatra to add it on to the package?

You get your local regional sports network (RSN) included with the basic package. If you want access to all of the RSNs then you have to buy the sports pack.

Thanks for letting me know because on direct tv's site it says we dont get fsn. If any of you have direct tv can you tell me what package you got andwhat channels come with it so i am not suprised if I loose channels I get with time warner now. I hope to get wgn but its not a big lose if i dont get it. Direct tv's site for the lineup seem to be wron since it does not show the local fsn's in any of the packages except the one with every single channel.

You can get all the FSN channels with one package but I forget which one it is.

It didn't list anymore local sports channels for free. I do recommend the sports pack though. It has everything you want.:)

Each subscriber gets an RSN. Since you're in Cincinnati you should get FSN Ohio as your RSN. If you subscribe to the Sports Pack you'll get all the other RSNs but you won't get to watch major sporting events on those because of various league broadcast contracts. However, the Sports Pack will get you a secondary RSN and I'm not sure what that will be. Go to Directv's website and go to Packages/Local Sports Network and enter your ZIP. That will tell show your primary and secondary RSNs and the teams you'll be able to watch.

And I believe WGN is available on the Choice Xtra package.

I got a related but different question.

I just hopped the Time Warner ship (at long last!) and joined the DirecTV revolution. But it was essentially after the Reds season ended.

How many (if any) Reds games did DirecTV carry in high def this year? I think I saw someone say that they occasionally showed up on different channels.

I am hoping with all the new HD channels being added that Fox Sports Ohio/Cincinnati will be in HD. Cuz I had to drive to a Covington bar to watch the Redlegs in HD. Not that that sucked too much. I like Covington girls fine.

Anywho, can someone who's had DTV for a while share what they know? Thanks in advance.

I only saw a few games in HD via Directv (D*). D* has a couple channels set aside for HD RSN broadcasts but the Reds weren't there that often. But that's last season...

FSN Ohio and FSN Cincinnati are scheduled to be available in HD later this year so hopefully Reds games in HD will be more frequent next year. We can hope that MOST games will be in HD next season.

Thanks! That's awesome news.

Although the bartenders in the COV just took a hit to their earnings.
