Tired of pulling your hair out looking for Root Sports? We know the feeling, and we’re here to help.
Root Sports is a regional sports network, so it’s only available in certain areas of the country. Then, to add to the confusion, Root Sports recently splintered into two networks: Root Sports Northwest and AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain.
