    I just switched to DISH and have a question about the favorite teams feature. I live in the state of North Carolina and the biggest sports team in the state is UNC Chapel Hill (NC Tar Heels). Because I live in Charlotte NC which is about 100 miles away, I cannot select the Tar Heels as a favorite team. That is unacceptable. There are a lot of NC State and Duke fans that must be disappointed too. Is this because it's college ball? I believe college basketball is more popular that professional around here.

    --UPDATED 8/1/2018 - I found the solution to this issue. Use the search feature to find your favorite sports team. Then create a Timer and click the favorite button for this team. After that, the team will show up under your favorite teams. I keep finding new things with Hopper 3 that make it the best DVR I have ever used!

    I can select "North Carolina Tar Heels" and I'm in Indiana. "Duke Blue Devils" is also in the list.

    League blackout rules maybe?

    Not for college sports. I believe the thread starter was looking for UNC in the list instead of North Carolina and simply missed his team.

    Ahh! Thank, James. Not being a college sports fan, I didn't know what their broadcast rules might include.

    Is that “Game Finder” which is just a search, or “Favorite Teams” which automatically finds the games for you? I only have about a dozen teams to choose from in “Favorite Teams”. That’s where I would like to find UNC. We don’t watch much pro basketball.
