    Learn something new, or reminded of something old, every day I guess, thanks! :D

    Now if only the Dodgers would put more of their games on the RSN, they currently still broadcast about 50 games per season OTA only. Great for local viewers but not so great for out of town viewers. With the new TV rights coming up for bid very soon my guess is that the local broadcast telecasts will drop dramatically. Does any other team air more games OTA than that? It seems like a very high number given the way the business has gone.

    I just checked the A's schedule, as it seemed I was always unable to watch some A's-Yankees games because they were on OTA in the Bay Area. I didn't notice any A's games on OTA this season and I know there are 15 OTA games (not counting FOX) for the Giants.

    Per the below schedule it looks like there's a few on national TV, FOX Saturday, and several that show no broadcaster at all. It seems to me they have been on locally OTA in the past, but as I don't follow the A's I don't recall what station, I think it was KICU channel 36.


    A's Schedule

    Just found this at Wikipedia,

    The Cubs, I believe, have more OTA games than any other team (although most of those are available to out-of-town viewers, since they air on WGN America).

    Wow!

    - The Away/Home ordering is really useful to know!
    - The mapping to RSN games is also really useful to know!

    Any of you use TiVo? I'm wondering if we can figure out a Wishlist that is somehow smart enough to use the RSN if available, and get the EI channel when not.

    DirecTV has removed the Phillies-Giants game from the guide tonight. Looks like the Phillies are on CSN (which DirecTV hasn't been using lately) and the Giants are on the local NBC in San Francisco only.

    Just a heads up for everybody. Phillies-Giants is not available on Extra Innings tonight...only MLB.tv.

    That is a shame. D* carried some of the NBC Bay Area Giants broadcasts last season.

    It's on KAIL 7.2 in Fresno, but it's SD and I don't have an OTA antenna handy.

    That's a bummer. The good pitching matchup would have made a nice relaxing way to end the day. I was looking forward to this game. :(

    Me too. Shame that Extra Innings doesn't provide every game.

    Did they really? I didn't think they carried any of the local station broadcasts.

    Interesting, I wonder if they do any of the Dodger games on KCAL, they may have in the past but I don't recall that they did specifically, guess I'll find out this Sunday. Age has it's drawbacks. :D

    so i was anticipating this game as i watched Madison dominate the Phillies last night. so i looked in the on air guide and saw that tomorrows game (which is now today) is going to be broadcast on MLB Extra Innings channel 747. i get home from work and see that "Phillies vs. Giants" is gone on channel 747 and only "To Be Announced" is displayed. so i'm pissed and i call in. spent over a half an hour on the phone, they transferred me to the technical dept and they told me yes it is suppose to be on. the tech tries a bunch of different things. tells me that he has escalated this and to keep watching and it will be on shortly. i'm so mad, this was Lee vs. Cain tonight.

    and yes some OTA Giants broadcast were on MLB Extra Innings last year but towards the end of the year it was only CSN Bay Area games. all OTA broadcast games, last month or month and a half, were not televised.

    so i just called DirecTV back and asked it i could put in a complaint. the represnitive goes "does this have to do with the Phillies/Giants game?" i told him yes, lol. i find it funny because he already knew about it so i'm not the only one mad tonight...going to their web site now.

    An exciting pitcher's dual that was won in stunning fashion in the bottom of the 11th by the Giants.

    And DirecTV didn't even have it on...pretty bad. A package that gets promoted as being one of the best sports packages ends up failing to show one of the best games of the season thus far.
