Frequently Asked Questions

I live outside of NBC Sports Chicago's regional viewing area and the pro team games are blacked out. Can I still get NBC Sports Chicago and how can I see these blacked out games?

You can receive NBC Sports Chicago on DIRECTV 640 and DISH Network 429. DIRECTV subscribers must subscribe to Total Choice or Total Choice Plus package with the Sports Pack. DISH Network customers must subscribe to America's Top 120 or 180 with the Multi Sport Package. Due to professional league blackout rules, professional games will not be available on NBC Sports Chicago. A subscription to MLB Extra Innings is required to see Chicago Cubs and White Sox, NBA League Pass for the Chicago Bulls and NHL Center Ice for the Chicago Blackhawks for broadcasts outside the regional viewing area. Please contact your satellite service provider regarding the availability of MLB Extra Innings, NBA League Pass and NHL Center Ice programming packages.
How can I obtain a tape of a game or a feature I saw on NBC Sports Chicago?

Unfortunately, with staffing, expenses and league rights issues involved, we simply cannot meet these requests. Therefore, it is our policy to not provide dubs to viewers. However, viewers can contact “News Exposure” at 312-685-2285 or regarding obtaining programming on NBC Sports Chicago. PLEASE NOTE: “News Exposure” cannot provide any professional team/league-related game footage or highlights of any kind for our pro game telecasts.

Why is Bears Blitz and Bears Recap blacked out in some areas?

This year, both Bears Blitz and Bears Recap contain NFL highlights within the shows. The NFL requires that these programs be blacked out in areas that are outside of the Bears territory, which is the Chicago market. Our "Bears Postgame Live" show does not contain game highlights and it will continue to be available to all of our viewers.

Why are some Cubs and White Sox games blacked out on DIRECTV?

Games that were available in the past with DIRECTV's Sports Pack or Total Choice package may be blacked out this season. Customers can see these blacked out games with DIRECTV's Extra Innings package. Any other questions should be directed to 1-800-DIRECTV.
