    FAQ Answers Round 2: "Media," aka Games on TV/Radio/Internet, Blackouts, Reds sites

    Time to answer another batch of those burning FAQ Questions!

    We'll answer one set of questions at a time. The second round of answers will be on the "Media" category. Post your answers to any or all sections of the question in this thread. I will compile and incorporate them into this first post. (Hopefully, I'll do a better job with updates this time, because of fewer distractions this week. The Round 1 compilation will get some attention, too)

    I know that there are existing threads on this subject in the archive, and I will mine those for the finished answer, too. Feel free to post links to threads if you think they contain particularly good answers or might be difficult to identify as such.

    There must be other good questions to be found in this category, so feel free to submit those, too.

    So far I'm mining the following threads:
    (none yet)

    As far as the form of your answer, you can either go with a "just the facts" format or make a post with full sentences as if someone had asked the question. If you want to disagree with an earlier answer for some reason, that's fine, too.

    Q: Why are Reds games sometimes blacked out on my cable/satellite/MLB.TV?

    DirecTV MLB Extra Innings Blackout FAQ: http://www.directvsports.com/Subscri...ngs/Questions/

    The following information is excerpted from a 2004 DirecTV FAQ:

    MLB EXTRA INNINGS SM
    If you live in a zip code that is within a team's territory, you will not see that team's games with a MLB EXTRA INNINGS subscription. For example, residents in Oklahoma City are in four teams' home territories: Astros, Rangers, Cardinals and Royals. These residents will see these teams on their local RSN, and on two additional local RSNs they can receive with the Total Choice GOLD or PLATINUM packages.

    Here are two important things to remember:

    In market definition: Your zip code is in a Major League Baseball designated home team territory. (This correspond with the home team territory assigned by your in-market RSN. Therefore, in certain parts of the country, a subscriber may have to upgrade to Total Choice GOLD or PLATINUM to receive additional in-market RSNs, and thus view additional home teams). You can find out what home teams you are eligible to view by calling 1-800-GET SPORTS.

    Out of Market definition: If your zip is not in a team's home territory (as defined by MLB) you will see that team's games if they are included in MLB EXTRA INNINGS. If the team you are trying to watch is playing a team in whose territory you reside you are considered to be in-market for that game.

    In-market subscribers can see Major League Baseball games on their local RSN or their local over the air broadcast stations.

    You can see out-of-market Major League Baseball games with MLB EXTRA INNINGS. If a subscriber lives in the home team boundaries of a team that is not featured on their in-market RSN, they will see that team through additional in-market RSNs available via a Gold or Platinum upgrade and not on MLB EXTRA INNINGS. A good rule to remember is a subscriber will not see a team that claims that subscribers zip code as part of the team's "home team" territory play on MLB EXTRA INNINGS.

    A blackout will be applied to both home and away teams -- even when the team is not being televised locally. MLB EXTRA INNINGS blackouts are consistent throughout the year -- the definition of the blackout remains the same no matter what carrier broadcasts the game.

    Two national networks also have rights to broadcast Major League Baseball games: ESPN and FOX (the national network - not FOX Sports, which may be your local RSN).

    ESPN has national broadcast rights for Major League Baseball games on Wednesday an Sunday nights after 5:05 p.m. ET (2:05 p.m. PT). Look for Wednesday and Sunday night games on ESPN, or on your local Regional Sports Network.

    Beginning May 30, FOX will broadcast Major League Baseball games on Saturday afternoons. So, while you will not be able to see Saturday mourning or afternoon games on MLB EXTRA INNINGS, you will be able to see games that begin after 7 PM ET on Saturday evening.

    Games on WGN, which feature the Chicago Cubs, an on TBS, which feature the Atlanta Braves, will be seen on Total Choice, Total Choice Plus Encore, or Total Choice Gold, Silver or Platinum.

    Q: Which radio stations carry game broadcasts for Reds minor league teams? Are these available on the Internet?

    Louisville River Bats Internet broadcast: http://www.sportsjuice.com/providers...hp?tname=lbats

    Perhaps we should include links to broadcasts of Reds minor league affiliates.

    Thanks reds44, I wish I had made the trip to Marinelli Field when I lived only 90 miles away in '99. I would have tried harder to get there if I had known that the team was only going to be in Rockford for one season! I still think that the logo was clever, albeit a little startling at first!
