Major League Baseball (MLB) Blackouts

The broadcasters who currently own exclusive national TV rights to air MLB games are:

  • ESPN – Sunday Night Games after 5:00 p.m. ET
  • FOX – Saturday Games between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. ET

 

MLB Blackout Criteria

Aside from the exclusive broadcast rights granted to the nationally-aired games above, local or cable channels in a team’s home market will contract with the team to broadcast their games in their local market. The local broadcasters will have priority to air the team’s games to their home market provided there is no nation-wide exclusive broadcast right granted to another channel.

For example: If a game is aired on a local channel and is also airing on the MLB Network, the local channel would have priority and the game on the MLB Network would be blacked out in the local market.

 

MLB Extra Innings Games

As is the case with local broadcasters, the exclusive TV rights that ESPN and Fox have with Major League Baseball also apply to the MLB Extra Innings package. If the game is not on the MLB Extra Innings schedule, check to see if the game is airing on ESPN, ESPN2, or Fox.

 

NOTE: Sports blackout rules change from time to time. As a general rule, if a game is blacked out in your area, always check your Interactive Media Guide to see if the game is airing on another FiOS TV channel.
