Houston NBA and MLB games are no longer on AT&T SportsNet Southwest. The new home of the Rockets and Astros is Space City Home Network (SCHN). The Rockets will start their 2023-2024 campaign on the newly branded network, and the Astros will begin next season on the new Regional Sports Network. While, the network is a completely new brand, broadcast info will remain the same. Let’s see where you can watch the new Space City Home Network if you don’t have cable.

fuboTV Carries Space City Home Network
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 Space City Home Network in its channel lineup. However, fuboTV subscribers in this area will be subject to a mandatory $6 per month regional sports fee. You can watch the Space City Home Network through fuboTV online or on your TV using a supported streaming device like a Roku or Fire TV Stick.
Like cable, Space City Home Network is only available through fuboTV if you live in the Houston TV market. I recommend checking their website to find the channels they offer in your area using this link.
FuboTV offers a 1-Week Free Trial. There is no contract, and you can cancel any time. If you cancel during your free trial, you will not be charged at all. Here are some features included with your subscription to fuboTV:
- live local CBS, FOX, and NBC broadcast in many parts of the country
- a ton of channels you usually find on cable like ESPN, FS1, and more
- a cloud DVR for recording TV shows
- stream to 2 devices at once (can upgrade to more)
What If You Live Outside the Houston TV Market
If you live outside Space City Home Network’s broadcast area, it won’t be in your channel lineup. This is true of whether you use streaming services or subscribe to cable TV. However, fans can check out the articles on how to watch the Astros and how to watch the Rockets. Fans may also be interested in using this TV blackout workaround.
