The Red Sox -vs Yankees game is on MLB Network, but on DISH it is blacked out to me saying it's not available in my area.

It not on NESN which normally airs the Red Sox games (They are airing a Bruins game) and its not airing on any of the local channels... so why is this pre season game blacked out to me here in Connecticut?

There are parts of NW New Jersey (near the Poconos) that get Philly home games blacked out (even when they were not playing the mets or yankees) all because they were on a exclusive cable only sports network

If it was a regular season game it most likely would have been available on an Alt HD channel from NESN. That's how they handle the early baseball season when the main NESN channel has a Bruins playoff game and the Alt channel will have the Sox game...
