Are you referring to Root Sports? Verizon carries Root Sports in Pittsburgh, which is the only region Root Sports covers that coincides with a Verizon FiOS area. The other two Root Sports regions (Northwest & Rocky Mountain) are not Verizon territory and therefore would not be carried by Verizon. If you are in the Pittsburgh area you would be able to find Root Sports on 76 (SD) and 576 (HD).
Echoing the intial poster, please add ROOT Sports to your channel selections. ROOT offers a host of regional college basketball programming as well.
Once again, if you have FiOS and don't have ROOT, it isn't available in your area. ROOT is regional to western Penna, namely the Penguins and Pirates TV territory. The good news is that most of the college sports shown by ROOT are available from our respective regional sports networks (channels 576, 577, and maybe others around there).
Any updates to covering ROOT Sports?
I would not hold your breath waiting for this. As all the other posters mention 2 years ago ROOT covers regional sports in areas where Verizon FiOS has little to no presence. Because of that I doubt you will ever see it added.
