With the recent addition of 400 plus zip codes to the broadcast territory, more Rockets fans in the Austin, Corpus Christi, Waco-Temple-Bryan, San Antonio, Shreveport, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and Little Rock-Pine Bluff areas can watch the games. The expansion also introduces Rockets TV coverage to the San Angelo, Texas area.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Rockets to more fans throughout our broadcast footprint,” said David Peart, general manager of ROOT SPORTS Southwest. “We are very pleased to significantly increase the availability of these exciting games.”
The NBA defines team broadcast territories. As a result, certain zip codes within the San Antonio, Austin, Baton Rouge and Little Rock- Pine Bluff, Arkansas DMA’s will not be able to receive ROOT SPORTS’ Rockets game broadcasts since those areas fall within other teams’ protected territories.
For a complete list of zip codes that now have access to Rockets coverage via ROOT SPORTS, visit www.RootSports.com/RocketsTerritory. ROOT SPORTS is currently available on DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and Xfinity among other cable providers. Local channel listings can be found at http://southwest.rootsports.com/channel-finder/.
