This isn't OTA related, but it's Raleigh TV related.
According to the Directv RSN lookup tool, SportSouth is not available on basic packages in eastern NC, including the Raleigh DMA. I used a Raleigh DMA zip code, only MASN and FS-South are listed. Why on earth do they put Hurricanes games on SportSouth? It's not even a local RSN to the market that the team is in. I understand that they still make the games available to customers, but according to the on-screen graphic, some providers do not even provide these games in HD. Directv mirrors them onto the FSSO+ feed for eastern NC. I can watch both the SportSouth+ (650-1) feed and the FSSO+ (647-1) feed and they are identical, and they seem to the be same ads that air on the FS-Carolinas subchannel. What is wrong with keeping them on the same channel all the time? I don't even think to look for them there... SPSO+ and FSSO+ are the "Bobcats channel." It makes sense for the Bobcats to be on SportSouth - that's a local RSN to Charlotte.
