ROOT SPORTS Expands Access to Rockets Games to More Than 200,000 Homes

The Houston Rocket's regular season TV broadcast rights holder ROOT SPORTS is now making Rockets games available to over 200,000 new households throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

With the recent addition of 400 plus zip codes to the broadcast territory, more Rockets fans in the Austin, Corpus Christi, Waco-Temple-Bryan, San Antonio, Shreveport, Lafayette and Baton Rouge areas can watch the games. The expansion also introduces Rockets TV coverage to the San Angelo, Texas area.

"We're thrilled to bring the Rockets to more fans throughout our broadcast footprint," said David Peart, general manager of ROOT SPORTS Southwest. "We are very pleased to significantly increase the availability of these exciting games."
