Regular Season Broadcasts

I am in Baltimore. So far, the preaseason games which were not nationally televised have been on comcast in Baltimore (channel 9 or 10 - local espn). I was wondering if anyone knows whether this will be continued during the regular season.

Although local affilliates can choose to broadcast a "regional" game, the default choice is the game chosen by the network. Unless faced with no other options, the Baltimore stations don't show the Skins games. Basically, Baltimore stations only shows about half the Skins games during the year.

Since the preseason games are on comcast, I was hoping I wouldn't have to climb on the roof and hook the antenna up to get the DC stations for the away games this year. Anyone got a clue?

Thanks!

Maybe you can get one of those 'city' antennas: the little ones that don't go up on the roof. Maybe this will work for you ???

Comcast is legally made to carry the local stations, which in your case would only be the B'more stations. I kinda doubt that they would carry the DC stations without being required to. I don't even know if that's legal.

So, I guess DirecTV sunday ticket or an antenna would be your only option.

Direct T.V. is the way to go if you can do it. It's cheaper than cable and right now they are offering free installation, equipment and 4 months of the top package including Sunday Ticket for a super rate. Can't beat it. My parents got it a couple years ago and their was never a game that I couldn't watch never a black out problem.

Yeah, that's kinda what I thought. Probly gonna go with the antenna. I have heard both good and bad on DirectTV, and, as we just got the DVR cable and internet package, don't think I want to hassle with it. Other than the lack of DC stations during Skins season, I am happy with what I got.

I'll just run an antenna. With the height of my house, I actually get great reception. It's just a hassle to run the antenna wire.
