    Is Stadium Sports only added by Sinclair stations or do others add it?

    Do local Stadium affiliates broadcast games from the list of games online that are of local interest? Or does everyone get the linear schedule on their site with very limited games?

    It's owned by Sinclair, so likely their stations only.

    We have Stadium here in Albuquerque by Entravision KTFQ-DT.

    Sending in 480i WS. Mostly out of town sports coverages save for few locals UNM Lobos women basketball games.:)

    I heard some stadium stations carry it in HD 720p.:) But not here though.:rolleyes:

    CBS owned KMAX 31 in Sacramento carries it on 31.4.

    My local Stadium channel, WVAH 11.2, substitutes Marshall football and basketball for the national schedule, carrying every game that some other network does not. The games are available on Facebook as well. It also carries a local HS football game every Friday.

    Duh, I should have thought of that. Thanks! It appears that many non-Sinclair stations carry it. Maybe there is hope that I will get it someday. It is one of the subchannels that I am sort of interested in that I don't have. Buzzr is the other.

    I know that in Dallas, Stadium is the primary channel (xx-1) and is HD and is carried on Directv. Good to hear that they do put in games that are local for you.

    Both Stadium and Buzzr stream for free online, I believe, if that option is available to you.

    I do watch Stadium online sometimes, and some of the games. To me, TV should be on TV. It's just easier. A well-broadcast, proper-aspect-ratio, good-quality SD broadcast on TV is better than a quality-shifting HD online broadcast, like Stadium.

    I think that here in Milwaukee that we may have tv stations that are owned by Sinclair. How long will there stations here will add the channel to are lineup in Milwaukee? I would love to have it here so I can watch it.

    Call your local Sinclair station, and request they add it. Otherwise they stream it here: https://watchstadium.com/live/

    Yes it is. So is Buzzr, for that matter.

    Thank you I will. I also downloaded Pluto TV and watched it on there. I like the idea that I don't have to pay for it. Between OTA channels and Pluto TV I have variety of more to watch now.

    What station is it? Can you give me the call letters? Sinclair controls/owns a lot of stations through shill companies. In my DMA, they own one, and control/own another one through a shill.

    Well, that one certainly isn't owned or controlled by Sinclair, so I guess Stadium isn't exclusive to them, even though they are the owners.
