It is like they have some sort of copyright on the recording of them. Like I said you can watch them live, but the recording of them do not work.
I am pretty sure this is related to whatever region I am affiliated with. If Fox Sports North plays the Minnesota gopher game on its Fox Sports North plus channel, Dish puts it on an alternate channel, because Dish does not offer that channel as a full time channel. The permissions seem to be set so that anyone can watch the game, but the permissions are not correct set so that anyone who is a regular subscriber to Fox Sports North, like I am, can record, and watch that game. Since I am a Fox Sports North subsciber, it seems that I should be able to record these games, and watch them later.
