Wait! I don’t get SportSouth!
It’s true. Many Hurricanes fans – typically east of the Burlington/Elon, NC area – do not get SportSouth as a part of their standard package from their carrier. For Hurricanes games on SportSouth, most carriers create an overflow channel in order to still bring you the games! These channel numbers may vary from SportSouth game to SportSouth game, so make sure to check this page for the latest information.

DirecTV subscribers tuning into the game will see FOX Sports Detroit's telecast on Ch. 646/646-1. This is due to a capacity issue with DirecTV with the number of live events (NHL, MLB, NBA, etc.) taking place at one time. The Hurricanes' FOX Sports Carolinas telecast is not the only one affected by this capacity issue. FOX Sports Ohio's Columbus Blue Jackets show will go into the Tampa market for those teams' game tonight, and in the NBA, Oklahoma City's show will go into New Orleans.

I live in South Carolina… Why don’t I get every game?
South Carolina is considered the Hurricanes’ “outer market” as designated by the NHL (for those of you interested in the terminology, North Carolina is the team’s “sphere of influence,” and the 50-mile radius around Raleigh is the team’s creatively-named, “50-mile home territory.”) Given that, FOX has the option of how many games they take to the “outer market,” and pays associated fees to the NHL based on that.
For the 2013-14 season, 71 of the 81 games that will be televised by FOX Sports Carolinas and SportSouth will go to South Carolina. The dates of the 10 games that will not go to the “outer market” are: 10/11, 10/13, 11/12, 11/15, 11/18, 1/23, 2/8, 3/7, 4/5 and 4/11.
Why do I see the Hurricanes in Georgia and even parts of Alabama?
Since the Atlanta Thrashers departed for the colder temperatures and the flatter topography of Winnipeg, there is a hole in the NHL’s regional broadcast territory. Since that territory is served by FOX Sports South, the NHL has given the network the right to split the former Thrashers broadcast territory between the Hurricanes and the Nashville Predators.
Thus, 47 of the 81 games televised by FOX Sports Carolinas and SportSouth will go to Georgia and parts of Alabama. The dates of those games are: 10/4, 10/6, 10/10, 10/15, 10/17, 10/19, 10/24, 10/25, 10/28, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16, 11/21, 11/24, 11/29, 12/1, 12/6, 12/9, 12/10, 12/20, 12/29, 12/31, 1/4, 1/7, 1/9, 1/10, 1/13, 1/19, 1/21, 1/24, 1/27, 1/28, 2/4, 2/7, 3/1, 3/2, 3/4, 3/8, 3/13, 3/15, 3/16, 3/22, 3/29, 3/31, 4/1, 4/3, 4/13.
At midnight, sometimes I see the Hurricanes, sometimes I see the Predators. What’s up with that?
That’s right, you do! FOX Sports South shows 2-hour replays of games across the entire FOX Sports South region, and alternates the schedule between the Hurricanes and the Nashville Predators (the Predators’ network, FOX Sports Tennessee, is also part of the larger FOX Sports South region).
