I do not get Root Sports in my Direct TV package. I came to this realization after agreeing to pay an extra $14 per month to get the 2 channels on which most of the BSU games would be televised. Missing the New Mexico game was a near fatal experience, so imagine my angst at this discovery.
Distraught, I began searching from channel to channel praying for the opportunity to record the game as I will most likely be unavailable to watch it live.
To my great surprise, I found the BSU vs. Southern Mississippi airing on several versions of Fox broadcasting. Most of which are also not included in my programming. AAARRRGGG! Alas I discovered one possibility. In my local area FSSWP (Fox Sports Southwest Plus?) did not crush my spirit with the "not subscribed" message. Channels 677 & 677-1. DVR at the ready, here goes 'nothin.
I do not know if this will work, but wanted to get the message out. If at first you don't succeed, take heart and keep looking. Good luck finding the game to any of you that find yourselves in the same situation.
