Watch how to search for games on your non-Hopper-family receiver

Hey, I’m Nadine. There are a couple of ways you can easily find your game on your DISH ViP receiver. Let me show you.

The first is by browsing your guide. Look to channels 2 through 70 for sports on local networks, 140 through 159 for national sports, and 407 through 439 for regional sports. Channel availability depends on your programming subscription. View your customized channel lineup by downloading the MyDISH app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

You can also search for your game. Press the Search button on your remote, and then enter your team’s name. You can then choose a theme and sub-theme, if desired, to further filter results. Select “Get Results” and you’ll see a schedule of what’s coming up or currently in progress.

And that’s all there is to it!

Thanks for joining me, and I’ll see you next time!

Is the game you want to watch showing as Blacked Out?

Here's why that might happen, and what you can do:

The game is blacked out in your area

Blackouts occur when one broadcaster’s rights to air an event override the rights of another broadcaster. For example, if ESPN buys the rights to air your home team’s game, the Regional Sports Network you usually watch might be blacked out in favor of the national ESPN channel.

The channel showing the game is not part of your DISH subscription

Some games, particularly ones played outside of your home team area, might not be included with a basic TV subscription. You can get access to these games by adding sports packages like Multi-Sport Pack or NBA League Pass.
