I live in Springfield, so we get FSN Midwest here, which shows Cardinals games all the time. I just found out that Dish Network has a sports package for only $5.99 a month. It has tons of FSN out of market networks, NBA TV, etc. I called them up today and they said the package does indeed include FSN Kansas City (which is a new network this year). That channel doesn't show up on the website but it is included in the package (at least here in Springfield).

Here is the link you can order it from if you have DISH Network:

I do not have Dish so I do not know the specifics, but you better check and see if you are going to get the Royal games or not. They may be blacked out.

i wouldn't think they would be blacked out...i live 170 miles from KC, which would be out of blackout range wouldn't it?

I am no expert on this, but I know I would ask the question. They have some crazy black out rules.

DirecTV has these and if I recall they were blacked out recently. I think MLB extra innings bullshit....

I don't know how it works for you there. But I have the sports package on Direct TV and the Royals games are always blacked out here since I live in the Rockies area. And Denver is 212 miles away. :cuss::cuss:
And it doesn't matter if the Rockies have the night off and KC is playing. :cuss:

I think that has something to do with it.
I'd pass on the Dish sports package unless it has to do with college sports which they never black out anyway.

Yea they didn't used to be blacked out. It's something they've done in the past couple years......really fricking annoying.

FSN Kansas City to carry 88 Royals games in HD

Although the Royals were already receiving the "world's largest" HD LED scoreboard (http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/10/03/kansas-city-royals-to-get-worlds-largest-hd-led-scoreboard/) in their home stadium, fans having to watch from the comfort of their own couches were yearning for more. Thankfully, FSN Kansas City -- the "new television home of the Royals" -- will be helping you folks out, as it's gearing up to broadcast 88 of the club's games this season in gorgeous high-definition. As you well know, 2008 marks the first year in which the Royals matchups will be aired in HD (regionally, at least), and FSN KC isn't wasting any time in delivering the goods. Starting on March 31st, Royals fans can catch the team's opener at Detroit in HD, and the home opener on April 8th (against the Yankees) will also be shown in high-def. Heck, even the pre- and post-game shows will be seen in HD on HD game nights. Check out the full HD schedule in the read link below.

BTW I have a feeling the Royals will have the largest HD scoreboard for just one season. The Yanks move into the new Yankee Stadium next year, I look for Stienbrenner to put in a bigger one.

well, Dish network doesnt carry MLB extra innings, so perhaps the games won't be blacked out?

we'll see. i'll be pissed if i can't get the games. otherwise they only televise like 3 games a month on FSN midwest.

03-26-2008, 07:02 AM
I'm upset because I have no options to watch any Royals game unless I want to get cable/sat. FSN is not a local channel, mlb.tv blacks the games out, I'm screwed. I should write a sternly worded letter!!!

03-26-2008, 09:16 AM
I might have to check with Direct about getting FSN for the KC area. I had the MLB ticket last year to watch them and I am not sure I ended up catching any more of their games than normal.

Thanks for the heads up.

03-26-2008, 09:51 AM
I think i got royals games last year cause of a cheap sports package too, but i dont remember it having much extra than fsn midwest and some alternate channels or big 10 stuff. If its something new i may have to add it if its got alot more sports stuff out of the region or whatever.

edit-i do have an NBA TV and NHL TV as well so maybe i have it

thurman merman

well the game yesterday was not blacked out. for some reason i cant get the game tomorrow. but they will be on thursday and friday. so, so far it's looking like it's worth it.

~ side question ~ has anybody found an online source for the audio stream? In the past it always seems some little podunk station in the radio network forgets to turn of their stream... ie in the past KAYS in Hays is where I've always caught it - but it seems they have finally remembered to turn off the stream.

well, if you wanted to pay $15 you can hear both audio feeds of every MLB game all season through MLB.com
