This is ridiculous!!! I just called dishnetwork and they told me that my local fox decided to show only the Yankees game based on my geographical area and not the cubs - marlins game. This is ridiculous, ridiculous that fox and mlb would not show their playoff games. Is this happening on the D* as well? How about cable?
Great scheduling isn't it? I have the same problem in Roanoke, Va. :x MLB should be ashamed for having both games scheduled at the same time. Fox should have designated a channel for a specific game. : FOX+MLB=DUMB
I was looking for a place to email fox and mlb about this decision of the so called split telecast.
In the fox website, I found this link which asks your opiniong about each telecast. I used it to show my disastifaction with this nonsense. I will also e-mail my local sport radio to let them know how I feel about this non-sense. This is the most ridiculous thing I ever saw.
I just called my brother-in-law and he is watching both games on DirecTV. Charlie is spineless - the E* phone guy told me Steinbrenner is directing DishNetwork what to show so even though FOXSPORTS.COM says we are supposed to see one on local and the other on 137 - WRONG!
I live in the Boston area so its the same deal here. It would be nice to check in on the other game during commercials. Why can't they do a temporary alternate channel like ESPN does? They have national rights to both games so its just a matter of putting out there. We should have a choice, its the playoffs!
