    Hi,

    I just scheduled my DirecTV installation. I ordered the sports pack and I wanted to make sure that FS Carolinas (channel 645-1) is included in the Sports Pack for subscribers who are outside of the Carolinas (i.e. I just wanted to make sure it's nationally avaialable and not just on a spot beam).

    Thanks for your help!

    remember you won't get any of the professional sports games with sportspack, they will be blacked out if they are not on your local RSN.

    Yes, I understand that. I want it for some college programing that is specific to that channel. Is it in the Sports pack?

    You should be fine since you want college games.

    I understand that. I just want to know if it is a National Channel or just on a spot beam. If it's on a spot beam, I don't think I will be able to get it in New York (even with the Sports Pack). That's the question I'm asking.

    It's a part-time national HD in sports pack. Only locals are spot beams.

    Thanks so much. When you say it's part time, does that mean only during games, or only during certain hours of the day?

    645 is the full-time SD channel, but 645-1 is only active during games.
