    I believe the games on MASN/MASN2 are blacked out to certain regions if the game is also being carried OTA by a local station. For those outside the OTA station's market, we still get the MASN/MASN2 feeds with no blackout.

    For example, some O's games are carried on WJZ channel 13 in Baltimore. Those in the Baltimore area will be blacked out on MASN and you guys can watch it on channel 13 , but for those of us outside the Baltimore DMA but still within MASN's territory, we still get it on MASN.

    The only blackouts for MASN are those for the DC market on games carried on channel 20. Those games on 13 are not blacked out at all.

    Anyone in Woodbine should not see any blackouts on MASN at all. Had to be a mistake.

    DMAs have nothing to do with it.

    Some games on MASN are co-broadcasted on MASN and WDCA. MASN will be blacked out in the claimed Grade B contour of WDCA (analog), which includes lots of the Baltimore DMA.

    Wrong. I live in Columbia, which is well within WDCA viewing area but part of the Baltimore DMA. I have never had MASN blacked out for a Nats game.

    I'll second that. Never had one blacked out for me either.

    a mistake would make sense,because channel 20 is not avalable on sat or cable here so its seems that game should have been in the clear on masn. csr on D* said that my zip should be blacked out when nats games are on channel 20,who knows.
