Does DISH carry the entire package of Cardinals games on FS Midwest?

Some games will be on Fox Sports Midwest or other channels. Blackouts will apply. Here is a link to our game finder tool that will assist you with finding the Cardinals. http://www.mydish.com/gamefinder/

MikeJH, he's probably talking about if any of the (additional) 20 games that FSM added last year, will NOT be broadcast by DISH. This was due to the Cards selling those OTA rights to FSM; BUT FSM was charging all the providers extra $$$ for those extra games - which some were NOT willing to pony up for!

U-verse is one provider that was NOT willing to pay the extra fee for those games this year - I believe DISH DID pay the extra $$$ for them this year.


The dispute originated last season after the Cardinals sold the rights to the 20 telecasts that previously had aired on KSDK (Channel 5) to Fox Sports Midwest. FSM charges programming providers an additional fee for those productions and all major systems serving the market other than U-verse eventually signed up, albeit some reluctantly, last season.

dstout - DO be aware that while DISH may have ALL the games in SD, NOT all of them will necessarily have an HD feed, due to DISH unable to carry all RSN's 24/7. ;)

That was my questions! I am not in the Cardinals market I was just curious. DISH carries the expanded Braves package. AT&T sill does NOT AFAIK.

I knew DISH didn't carry the extra 25 Angels games. I wonder why?
