Just a little warning to Red Sox fans with Dish Network--there's no live broadcast of tonight's game on Dish.

Because of a conflict with the Bruins' game tonight, NESN is relegating the Sox to alternate channel status. According to today's Boston Globe, Dish Network "doesn't have the channel capacity" to carry the game.

NESN does plan to run a delayed broadcast of the game at midnight and again tomorrow morning at 9.

I'm a little surprised that Charlie couldn't come up with one of the alternate sports channels for the Sox broadcast. Their ratings have been extraordinarily high for April, a 30 share last Sunday afternoon.

It's the same way up here north of you. The Red Sox network has had a devil of a time getting affiliates for the last 6 years since WSBK dropped the contract. At one time, the Springfield affiliate in their network was the Spanish channel, who often forgot to flip the switch at game time. And every rain delay brought us cheesy Spanish music videos.

The good news is that WFXT's contract expires this year, and with the new ownership, there's a much greater chance of NESN carrying a bigger load.

As for public access, let's face it--the Red Sox of the second half of 2001 belonged no public access.
