    It's not officially called "Roots Sports Pittsburgh" yet, is it? Do we know when this official change will happen to the D* owned RSNs?

    i saw highlights on espnews and they used root sports and i was shocked, they are still using the graphics from FSN Pittsburgh.

    alls they did was jsut put root sports in a faded graay top right everything else looked like FSN.

    I wonder if they are waiting for hockey season to beover with.

    I read the new graphics packages will be introduced over the course of the summer for all Root Sports RSN areas.

    Root Sports Rocky Mountain launched today with the Rockies game. Not much different except they don't play the Fox baseball music.

    D owns Pittsburgh, rocky mountain and northwest and the sub feeds.

    so FSN PITTSBURGH, ROCKY MOUNTAIN NORTHWEST and UTAH are now roots

    Still no idea why D* didn't name these within the D* brand, like Comcrap does with their RSNs... D* Sports Pittsburgh, D* Sports NW, and D* Sports Rocky Mountain.

    well they probably thought of calling it DSN but CSN and FSN my guess would create more headaches for people.
