    Cubs on ESPN?

    Cubs.com says the game is on ESPN tonight, but turning it to channel 35 here in Ames brings up ESPN News. Any insight?

    It's free online using SopCast. If you don't know what that is, go to the link below.

    Re: Cubs on ESPN?

    Pretty simple = Baseball's Archaic Blackout Restrictions = Almost as bad as Big 12 Television Package

    The game is being broadcasted in the Chicago vieiwing area (even if the channel isn't available to you -- which WCIU isn't even to 50% of Chicago), so that channel is the only channel able to show it in that viewing area. That area includes southern Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, etc. So, no ESPN. Same story when the game is on ESPN and on WGN/Comcast.

    Re: Cubs on ESPN?

    I just looked up the blackout map -- f'ing ridiculous. It's not like they have a hard time filling Wrigley up, especially when the team is this close to a preseason berth.

    Guess it's GameCast for me..

    Re: Cubs on ESPN?

    Freaking ridiculous. I sent a message to ESPN about it already, even though it will make no difference. It makes no sense to black out coverage all the way here in Des Moines, like any of us are going to drive on over for a game tonight. The game's on Comcast, isn't it?

    Not on DishNetwork tonight either. This is BS. ComCast is the WhiteSox game tonight and WGN is some other show.

    Im in Ankeny. Maybe they think were all Twins fans wayyyy up here. I remember listening to Marty n Miller one day when they were talking baseball blackouts. Seems Des Moines is in about 5 or so MLB teams blackout areas. Cubs, Cards, TWins , Royals, and i cant remember if anyone else. Everyone can come watch it over here!

    The entire state of Iowa is in Cubs, White Sox, Twins, Cardinals, Royals, and Brewers blackout areas. Absolutely rediculous.
