09 television schedule

54 posts in this topic

I was just looking over this season's schedule and it shows all the games being broadcast on mlb.tv, not fsn-north. Other then the nationally televised games.

What is up with that? I don't get mlb.tv with my %$$^%$% cable company.

Must be missing something, I can't imagine that the only way to watch the twins is on mlb.tv

I had no idea. It looks like you're right, all games on MLB. I can't believe your cable co. doesn't carry it. I'd call them.

We have Comcast and the same pkg. that carries MSN also has the MLB Network so we're good to go. Sux to be you. grin

MLB.tv is internet. They've had random games on for a few years. I think that this year you can subscribe and watch all games.

The Twins will likely be on FSN but the schedule probably hasn't been updated.

MLB TV network launches Jan. 1

Sunday December 21, 2008

We're just a few days from the New Year's Day launch of the MLB Network, which will become baseball's official TV channel.

If you're familiar with the NFL Network, it's roughly the same blueprint. At launch, the schedule will consist of mostly studio shows from Secaucus, N.J., and old games. The network will show games on Thursday nights throughout the season.

And one very cool program is on the docket already: The Ken Burns "Baseball" miniseries that aired on PBS in 1994 will be airing on Tuesdays. Set your DVR or VCR if you don't have the series on DVD already.

And Major League Baseball has an ambitious timetable for more. It will launch with a capability of 50 million subscribers, and it wants to be a viable contender for bidding on postseason games by 2013.

So will you have it on your television? If you have Comcast, Cox, Direct TV, Time Warner, Charter, Cablevision or Verizon FiOS, you can get it (probably have to be on some kind of sports tier). If you have AT&T or Dish Network or a smaller company, it's not likely that you won't have it at launch.

There will be a a few familiar names. The studio hosts are Matt Vasgersian (formerly the Padres play-by-play announcer) and Victor Rojas. Former players Al Leiter, Joe Magrane and Harold Reynolds will be the analysts.

They have a tv channel now, but it sounds as though they wont be having any live games.

Thanks for the update wandering. There is no way the Twins wouldn't be available to the public on cable is there? Boy that would be a long summer without em.

Boy, how soon they forget. Wasn't it just 2 years ago the Twins tried to get their own station going? We didn't have bb on TV for almost the whole first half of the season. You're right, it WAS a long summer.

Just got this email straight from FSN.

"FSN will still be airing Major League Baseball."

Yah, I remember that, but I also remember thinking there is no way that they will be able to hold it from us too long. Good ole Victory sports channel. Another one of old Carl's swindling moves to try to make more money than he needed while screwing the fans over - that Dink.

I thought I heard that FSN will still be airing the games this season. I sure hope so. Lots of night spent in the Garage watching the Twins with the neighbors.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
