    Extra innings package?

    I live outside the Cincy area, and Direct tv is telling me that games beginning before 7pm are blacked out by Fox. So now I can't watch the Reds at home on Sat anymore. Anyone one else in this boat. This sucks, not fair. At least put it on at 7pm then. Even if the opposition carries the game it will still be blacked out. Not right. Why did the Reds have to move up Sat games to 6:10?

    It is due to the fact that Fox has national rights on Satudays

    Generally the games that start before 7 are nationally broadcast on FOX. The Reds early start is not because of this, but a management decision to start the games an hour earlier.

    thanks for the article! baseball needs to do something quick. even though i'm a reds fan it pisses me off that i can't watch cleveland games on directv here in toledo even with the EI package.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Reminds me of the Wednesday Night games that were blacked out a few years ago. Sad you can spend hundreds of dollars a year to watch your team and you cant even watch them on a Saturday Night.
