If you live in Houston and want to watch Rockets or watch Astros games, then you are going to need the AT&T SportsNet Southwest channel (formerly Root Sports Southwest). However, don’t think you need an overpriced cable TV subscription. You can stream AT&T SportsNet Southwest live with fuboTV.

fuboTV offers subscribers local and cable TV channels just as if you subscribed to a cable TV package. For subscribers living in Houston and the surrounding TV market, fuboTV carries AT&T SportsNet Southwest in its channel lineup.
