No, they provide FSN, but instead of the Bobcats games, they either show blacked out Hawks games, poker or "Best Damn" specials.

They provide SportsSouth too, but it's blacked out

Have you called them about this? SportSouth is (I think) considered to be one of your regional sports networks and as a result you should be able to get it. Also, on FSN, the fact that they are showing what you have stated as opposed to the Bobcats games says to me that they are providing you with the wrong programming.

It probably has something to do with the channel package we have (as to why I don't get SportsSouth), the other thing is that there still must be a deal in place with TWC so that the games can only be shown on cable, just on different channels.

After a certain distance from Charlotte FSN's fee goes up. Right now both DISH and DirecTV refuse to pay that extra fee...so you nor I have access to the games on TV.

To make matters worse FSN also blocks Charlotte's games on League Pass...so until something changes we have no options. We just flat can't get them.
