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.

Chris Fowler + Game Finder

DISH makes it easy to find the games you’re looking for with the Game Finder app.

A referee runs out to the center of a football field and gives a DISH TV remote to Chris Fowler, who starts playing TV on the jumbotron.

Chris: When I’m on the field I feel at home. Especially, while watching college and pro football with DISH.

With games on every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday ending with Monday Night Football on ESPN. I could hang out here for days!

See football up on jumbotron over Chris’ shoulder. Chris mesmerized by the screen.

Chris (looking up at the jumbotron): That’s A LOT of football!

And DISH made it easy to find the games you’re looking for with the Game Finder app.

Chris (speaking into the Voice Remote): "Game Finder."

Chris: Now if only I could check-up on my stats…

Announcer: With DISH watch tons of college and pro football on ESPN.
