Brewers’ 2012 television schedule released | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

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.

With an additional six games being broadcast on Fox Saturday Baseball, it looks like fans will be left with only six games untelevised this season:

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.

    I realize this is a small number of games not televised & there’s televised games i’m sure i’ll miss…but is this normal in this day and age that a club doesn’t broadcast ALL their games? Even if it’s only a handful that aren’t? Just curious.

    If I had to bet, I’d wager the first 3 stay dark & the last 3 are picked up. I think the Saturday game gets moved to a 1 or 3 start to get out of the blackout window.

    Think I am going to finally give in and buy MLB TV this year…. hard being a Brewers fan in NC.

    As an Ohioan, are all the games available on MLB.tv or just those ones that won’t be on FSW?

    Check the blackout map, and be glad you don’t live in Iowa…

    I live in SC, MLB.TV is totally worth it. Especially if you have a PS3. For 124 bucks you get all the games, and the apps for droid and ipad/phone are included in the price.

    I’m trying to figure out how I can watch as many games as possible- I live in Milwaukee- do I get cable or do I get MLB.tv… This blackout stuff has me super confused. I miss the days when the games were FREE on Super 18. I just don’t get the blackout in relation to MLB.tv … I don’t want to watch any other games but the Brewers… If I pay for MLB.tv I want to be sure I can watch them and not just have access to every game but… Please help!
