    Thursdays game vs the braves will be on the mlb network. You'll have the channel whether you have satellite or cable. For direct tv customers the channel is 213.

    Thurs. July 1, 2:20 PM, @ Chicago Cubs
    Fri. July 2, 2:20 PM, @ Chicago Cubs
    Fri. Aug. 6, 2:20 PM, @ Chicago Cubs
    Wed. Aug. 25, 3:45 PM, @ San Francisco
    Mon. Sept. 6, 3:10 PM, @ Colorado
    You really have to question May 31st and Sept 6th? They are holidays, people are off of work to watch the game.

    Cubs day games are games that they have traditionally broadcast. I have always felt they did it because for years we could watch the games on WGN and they didn't want us watching WGN so they broadcast also. Either that or, since WGN/CSN broadcast every game, they knew they would have a broadcast of the game to piggy back on.

    The SF game in August, I am only guessing because, since it is such a late start, most people would be able to catch at least half of it after work unlike a 12:35 game.

    It's really annoying when you hear Marty talk about seeing the replay from the Milwaukee TV broadcast.

    One of the best games of the year and no one in Reds country saw it except for the ~17,000 in the park today.

    Do the Reds expect us to travel to Atlanta to see Thursday's 1:05 PM game? Is that why it is not on local television??
    I don't believe it's the Reds....it's FSN Ohio. I always heard that they didn't believe the ratings would be high enough for those afternoon games. Now, with the monster ratings they pulled for Monday night's game, they may have to rethink that.

    Actually Thursdays game is on the MLB Network. And Gilpdawg is right. FSN bought the rights to show the Reds and it is their "right" to show or not show particular games.

    One more day of suffering with no television. Today will be the worst because it's a primetime game against the in-state rival. I guess FOX thinks we will enjoy Yankees/Mets better than our hometown teams.

    The game isn't on sportstime ohio in Cleveland either I don't think.. What a shame. Why can't they just move the game to a day game so it won't compete against Fox and be able to show the game on air.

    Good question. If they started at 4 PM it could be televised. Since it's at 7, STO is not allowed to show it either.

    Maybe someone should tell the Reds so the same thing does not happen in a month when Cleveland visits Cincinnati.

    These games today will not be televised anywhere in the USA:
    Cincinnati @ Cleveland
    Tampa Bay @ Houston
    Atlanta @ Pittsburgh
    Toronto @ Arizona

    The Cardinals, White Sox, Nationals, Royals, and Twins all have figured it out and scheduled games beginning before 4:15 PM ET.

    This is by far the dumbest thing Major League baseball has tried in a while. Why would you put a very little meaning game in prime time against the NBA playoffs and expect it to do anything but poor ratings for FOX. I understand the Yankees and the nationwide popularity but it's not like it's an every Saturday happening so the casual fan isn't going to know a national baseball game is on Saturday night. They are just going to be mad because the local team isn't on and will probably watch something else.

    It's regional coverage. Most of the country will receive NYM/NYY.

    Percentages for 5/22/10 MLB on Fox:

    NY Yankees @ NY Mets 54%
    Chicago Cubs @ Texas 22%
    Detroit @ LA Dodgers 13%
    Boston @ Philadelphia 11%

    http://www.the506.com/sports/MLB10/may-22.html

    It looks like from the link above that Reds country will get different games.

    Cincinnati gets the Cubs/Rangers game. Columbus gets Yankees/Mets. Dayton will see Boston/Philadelphia.

    Anyone with XM Satellite radio, they will be on channel 178 tonight. It will be the Indians broadcast though. XM only air's the home broadcast teams.

    Its a joke that 2 ohio teams playing cannot be seen on tv in ohio. I thought the whole point of interleague play was to get attendance a tv ratings up with matchups you dont usually see.

    Well MLB and FOX killed that dream when they scheduled these primetime games during the same weekend as Reds/Indians.
