At DIRECTV, we strive to bring you the best entertainment experience available. Regional Sports Fees are updated biannually based on the presence of Regional Sports Networks (RSNs) and/or collegiate in-market programming in applicable ZIP Codes.
In some ZIP Codes, you may be subject to a nominal Regional Sports Fee as a result of higher costs due to contractual obligations requiring us to offer multiple sports networks in select ZIP Codes. Or in rare instances, a single RSN that carries games from four or more teams. These local RSN(s) are included in most base packages, but some don't include RSNs, and are therefore not subject to a fee.
The RSN(s) included in the Sports Pack premium option include the additional RSNs outside of your local metro area (determined by your ZIP Code) and not subject to this fee.
