2014 MLB Postseason: ALCS and NLCS on Sportsnet and Fox

mlbpostseason2014Good news: There are no more games exclusively on MLB Network (after the gong show that was last weeks two games) for the rest of the postseason. Better news: Despite Sportsnet having an shit-tonne of hockey, all but three of the ALCS and NLCS games over the next week or so will be on your regular regional Sportsnet channel. The two Wednesday matchups will be on SN 360 with Wednesday Night Hockey showing on SN and SN One and NL Game 5 (if required) will be on SN One as Sportsnet has NFL Thursday Night Football. Jamie Campbell and Gregg Zaun will host a 30 minute MLB Central preview before each game.

In previous years, Sportsnet have used the mostly horrible MLB International feed for the NLCS series and viewers who preferred their baseball with some production standards could switch to the Fox broadcast. While Sportsnet hasn’t confirmed either way which feed they will be showing, viewers looking for an alternative will have fewer options this season as five out of the seven Cards-Giants games will be on Fox’s cable channel Fox Sports One. Only games one and six will be on your regular over-the-air Fox channel.

  1. I just turned the game on, it’s MLB International, Gary Thorne and Rick Sutcliffe on the call, personally I prefer Gary Thorne over Ernie Johnson on TBS.

  2. Ron Darling comes across as a know it all. I too like Gary Thorne, hopefully he doesn’t start rooting for the O’s.
