    Alot of channels. I've heard almost every channel between 625-666.

    I thought it was on the Big Ten Network. Is that wrong?

    Do you need the sports package to watch the game?

    You shouldn't need the sports pack if it is on your "local" FSN chanel.

    It should be on just about all of them. Its the primary matchup for the week. I don't know what games would conflict with it though if you are are in tx or something.

    However, I see there there may be a conflict with cubs mets in chicago.

    If you get north, florida, East, Ohio, indiana, Detroit, Oregon, MW, Southwest, Arizona, West

    All should get the game. You almost certainly have one of those. If you are right in the Chicago market, or NY market, I'm not sure how that plays out, but more than likely if you are outside of those 2 you get multiple FSN's and will have one of the others.

    As far as I can tell the Iowa vs Iowa State game is on every Fox Sports regional affiliate, meaning it is essentially a nationwide broadcast for Fox Sports...

    OOops was looking at CSN chicago. strike that for Chicago, but some of that may apply for the MS ST @ Aub territories.

    If I remember right though if you get a market FSN, you'll also get another regional FSN. IE if you get FSN MS you will also get FSN South or something like that and all the big regional FSN's are showing ISU.

    Re: DirecTV

    Since we're in the Cubs market in Iowa and the Cubs are being shown on 665, does this mean the game will be on 666? I don't see it listed in the programming guide but that would make since.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    English Packages

    Re: DirecTV

    Still no clear answer on whether or not I'll be able to watch from home without the sports pack?

    Since the cubs are playing on the only FSN channel I receive and the game doesn't show up on 666 which is supposed to be the alternate FSN channel, I'm assuming I'll need to acquire the sports pack to watch the game on one of the other FSN channels.

    My DirecTV schedule shows channel 671 @ 11 am Saturday playing Iowa @ Iowa State. No sports package FSN midwest is included with all packages.

    P.S. if you live in Ames, you should be there

    FSN midwest is not included in all packages. Why would I go to the Iowa game when I can make it to three other games for the same price? Plus, the game is a "sellout".

    Well I have Choice extra and it's included. If you go to the link I provided above you will find the four packages they offer. If you scroll down to "F" under standard channels, you will find FSN midwest offered on all four with several other FSN channels offered for "Choice Premier". If you don't get it maybe you should be calling DTV about not getting a channel that you are paying for.

    I will answer you're question with a question. Why would you pay $100 for three games when you could pay $150 for all six home games?
