Cardinals TV games on Cox and Comcast
« on: April 05, 2009, 09:51:11 pm »

The past few years that I have lived here they have been. But as of right now they are not on the tv schedule. Does anyone know if comcast is going to televise all of the games this year like they have in the past?

Thanks

If they don't, you can always do what I did...switch to satellite and get the Fox Sports Package...You'll get about 85-90% of the games and won't pay the MLB network price.

Fox sports Midwest is the channel you need for the majority of the games.  Some sunday games are broadcast on KKYK, which I think was channel 15 if I remember right.

I've tried to figure this out as well. In short, the people on the phone have no idea. In the past a channel was dedicated to showing baseball games that didn't otherwise have programming - I think it was channel 66 - but I can't tell if that will be back.

Agreed. That's what I have been trying to find out as well... We will see today at 3:15.

It used to be on one of the real estate channels. Maybe in the 70's? I'd flip through every channel, if I remember it didn't even show up on the guide.

What about Cox Cable in NWA?  Supposed to be on Channel 39 but a no show today.  What gives?  Called them and they said it was not one of the games they were set to air, but it was on for a little while then went to Dean Martin show.

I have flipped through every channel, and so far, nothing. I seem to want to say they were on 75 last year, but nothing on that channel yet.

I'm no expert regarding TV contracts, by any means, but doesn't it make sense to lock up your baseball contracts before the season starts?

What number did you call? I'll call too.

Also, the Cardinals are blacked out on the MLB Extra Innings package in central Arkansas. So that doesn't even help us.

Marty Houston speculated this morning that part of the problem might be the Royals are claiming Fayetteville/Fort Smith as part of their market, thanks to the Naturals being in Springdale now.

Scott, do you know what the best way to get this worked out is?  Just flood them with phone calls?

I just called them and she said the only games that are scheduled to air on channel 30 (the only ones that have worked a a deal with FSN on) are on April 12, April 26, and a few in May.

She wasn't real helpful.  Just told me basically what I have already read on here.

I asked about a timetable for negotiations and she said she doesn't know at this time.

Fort Smith.  I would assume it would be the same for Fayetteville, just a different channel.

I'm not sure about NWA.  I know if anyone is reading this in Fort Smith, you can pick up the games on AM 1230.

You guys aren't the only ones mad about Cardinals games not on your cable system.

I've called Comcast but I don't get anyone local who has a clue what I'm talking about.

Thanks Scott, I wasn't home tonight (watching the Hogs beat the Sun Devils) to see if they were indeed on, but that is great news.  Thanks.

Screw the Cardinals! They get shoved down our throats here and it's sickening. I'm sure it's because they win one World Series and everyone jumps on their wagon. F the cards, pick a real team, like a team you grew up watching, mine is the Royals! Through thick and thin......Go Blue!  ;D

well, through thin anyway right? ;). you probably haven't lived long enough to go through thick AND thin. and idk if you've checked your world series history, but the cardinals have won more than one.
