Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO

News from the Illinois Valley

Some Illinois Valley Cub fans will be left out of playoff broadcast

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2016

There could be some angry and surprised Cubs fans in Ottawa and Streator.

Saturday night’s Cubs playoff game is being shown only on the MLB Network. While everyone can get that channel on Comcast, DirecTV and Dish Network thanks to a free preview this weekend, Mediacom doesn’t offer the MLB Network. A Mediacom spokeswoman told Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO that they “regret the inconvenience this will cause.”

You may have to search hard to even find tonight’s Cubs game since its on Fox Sports1. FS1 is channel 551 on Comcast, channel 63 on Mediacom, 150 on Dish Network and channel 219 on DirecTV. You can the MLB Network on Comcast at channel 516, at 152 on Dish Network and on channel 215 on DirecTV.
