Brewers playoff games on Over-the-Air TV

Wondering why none of the Brewers playoff games are on any of the Green Bay TV stations? I'd sure rather watch them than the American league Rangers and Tigers.

FOX has rights to the ALCS,

FOX has rights to the ALCS, and TBS has them for the NLCS. Hence no over-the-air broadcasts of Brewers games, though it's not really any different that most of the Brewers games all season.

I don't have cable myself, but I started watching the Brewers series last night on my iPad. For $1.99, you can download the MLB At Bat app and get either the Milwaukee or St Louis radio broadcast, or a single camera angle of the Brewers game (ie. not what you'd see on TBS, but you can switch between like 10 cameras in the stadium and sit on one camera at a time, but you get the TBS announcers audio with it. Good cheapskate way to watch the games.)

Well that explains it.

Well that explains it. Thanks for that insight. It's sure not as simple as it was in the 60's growing up. I guess MLB.com is the only other choice for those of us without cable. Or wait until the Brewers are in the World Series. :)

TvBoy: From what most people say, Journal doesn't care much about NBC 26. So them spending money would be totally unrealistic. People will watch Larry, but not much else.
