You're probably out of our DMA. You might be better off downgrading your TV service and buying the MLB video service.

A) Complain to MLB about the blackout rules.

B) The reason you don't see WPIX listed anywhere is because it is part of the superstations pack.

C) Add the Superstation pack and watch your Mets.

Regards, Eric

WPIX has Mets games every sunday, so it's way more than "2-3 games a year".. also if you're in the Mets' claimed territory but don't get Sportsnet NY as your local RSN, you might want to get sportspack

Believe it or not, I get all Sunday games on WPIX (which is why I was shocked to see it this way tonight) as well as Sportsnet NY in HD

I'm not too surprised. I believe ESPN has the Mets for the sunday night baseball game, so SNY probably allowed WPIX to have the rights to the friday game.

WPIX has like 25 games in 2008, fyi.

WPIX and SNY are in the same market, most markets have two deals one for a regional sports channel and another for a free local broadcast. SNY does not have to give permission since the deals usually work that any game shown on the local channel are not broadcast on the rsn. Note: in New York, WPIX is a local channel and not classified as a superstation in that market.
