As someone who is thinking about ordering the sports package this thread can be kind of confusing. For example I am interested in FSN Midwest as a majority of the St. Louis Cardinal games are broadcast on this station. I live in the Chicago suburbs, would a Cardinals game broadcast on FSN Midwest be blacked out for me in Chicago?
Yes, there are a few things like NHL that you can watch on FSN midwest, but the cards isnt one of them. Wich is a shame as there are alot of cards fans in the chicago area. It would be nice to have the choice. I hope that once ATT does add these packages they will pick up all the rsn's in SD and HD like Directv.
The only packages that they wont carry is NFL sunday ticket and Nascar Hotpass, and thats only by contractual rights. (directv has exclusitvity)
