Will MLB games be blacked out?
Note: Some games may be blacked out due to local blackout rules, or because Sling TV doesn't have the rights to broadcast a game. Impacted subscribers will not be able to watch the game unless it is also on a local broadcast network, available either through your Sling TV subscription, or with an over-the-air antenna. For more information on blackouts, please click here.
If you receive a blackout message on a Regional Sports Network you receive through Sling TV and believe this may be in error, or if that channel is missing from your guide, click here for steps to troubleshoot the issue.
MLB Network Blackouts: Select games will be blacked out in the markets of teams playing. In some cases, an alternate game will be shown on the MLB Network alternate channel, available in your guide. The alternate game will only be available in those markets where the game is blacked out on the primary MLB Network channel.
Example: If the Reds are playing the Pirates on MLB Network, that game would be blacked out in both the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh markets. The Cubs versus Braves game would be available on the MLB Network alternate channel in Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Please note that not every game subject to blackout will have an alternate game available.
