    [SIZE=14pt]I always wondered why Kansas City was not in an NBA viewing area. To my surprise Kansas City is in the Oklahoma Thunder viewing area. I found that every cable company in the area carries the Thunder games but they are not available on Directv. Can someone please explain to me why everyone can get these games except satellite subs?

    Ya according to directv's RSN locator your only RSN is FS Midwest

    http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/functionalPageIF.jsp?assetId=cms_sports_lookup

    Not sure why your local cable company is different.

    May want to contact FS Oklahoma and if they are indeed suppose to be in your area let them know directv is blacking you out because they don't have FS Oklahoma as a RSN for your area.

    According to the FSKC website the games are carried on FSKC Plus. All the cable companies in the area have FSKC Plus. This appears to be an overflow channel but since Directv does not carry FSKC full time, not sure what it is. The only thing shown on FSKC on directv is the Royals games. That is it. FSMW is our full time RSN.
