Fox Sports Wisconsin released their 2012 broadcast schedule on Thursday, and it looks like Brewers fans will be getting more baseball on FS Wisconsin than ever before.
A total of 150 games will be on the network in 2012, up from 135 in 2011. Every broadcast will be in HD, and as a bonus, six spring training games will be televised. Right now, it doesn’t appear there will be any games on WMLW, even though the station recently started broadcasting in HD.
April 25 – Astros @ Brewers, 12:10 p.m.
May 9 – Reds @ Brewers, 12:10 p.m.
May 23 – Giants @ Brewers, 12:10 p.m.
June 2 – Pirates @ Brewers, 6:10 p.m. (FOX primetime game blackout)
August 30 – Brewers @ Cubs, 1:20 p.m.
September 27 – Brewers @ Reds, 11:35 a.m.
If you live outside of the Brewers’ home market, you can still catch all of those games on MLB.TV. If you’re anywhere in Wisconsin, you’re out of luck, thanks to MLB’s convoluted blackout rules.
Most of the games fans will be missing on TV are in the first half of the season, and it’s hard to get worked up over only 4% of the team’s games being untelevised. FS Wisconsin has shown in the past they’re willing to add games to the schedule late in the year, too, if the team is playing meaningful baseball. If the team is still in the division race in the season’s last few weeks, it wouldn’t be a surprise to at least see that Reds game picked up.
