M’s radio broadcast delayed, but what about that game on RTV or the one on NBCSN, or was that LWN?

ESPN 710 AM is broadcasting today’s Seattle-Cincinnati Cactus League game, but I was surprised to learn that it’s on a delayed basis. You can listen to it at 7 p.m. Felix Hernandez is starting for Seattle.

I called 710 AM to ask if all of the M’s games are being broadcast on a delayed basis and nice young lady was very helpful. She directed me to MyNorthwest.com. Once there, you click on press releases and they have a weekly schedule that you can follow. This link will get you to this week’s schedule. (Why wouldn’t I have know that the schedule would be under press releases?)

While we’re at it, you can click on this link to find out which M’s Cactus League games will be televised by ROOT.

We get a lot of calls about the different TV networks and where you find them. (OK, mostly we get a lot of calls about why we put the wrong time or the wrong network in our TV listings). We don’t do this on purpose, but anyone who’s navigated a remote knows that it’s not as simple as ABC (Ch. 4), NBC (Ch. 5) and CBS (Ch. 7) anymore.

CSN is Comcast SportsNet Northwest and its on Comcast Ch. 179

FSC is Fox Soccer Channel and it’s on Comcast Ch. 401, DirectTV Ch. 619 and DISH Network Ch. 406.

And you’ve probably seen NBCSN on your listings lately. It’s formerly VERSUS and you can find it on Comcast Ch. 34, DirectTV Ch. 603 and DISH Network Ch. 151.

The Live Well Network (Comcast Ch. 115) carried some college basketball recently and I suppose they will have more sports, although I can’t say that with certainty. Ch. 115  is where I used to find Universal Sports on Comcast. Universal Sports is no longer available on Comcast, which is a bummer if you liked following Bremerton bobsledder Bree Schaaf or any of your favorite Olympic or adventure sports that Universal Sports covers.

Another new one is Retro Television (RTV), which you can find on Comcast Ch. 117. RTV has been broadcasting some college basketball.

And you all thought the ROOT/FSN NW name change thing was confusing.

I’m not even going to get into ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, FOX Sports, GOLF, MLB Network, NFL Network, NBA Network, SPEED, CBUT, UWTV and all the other places sports junkies frequent.

If you have questions, please call your provider. Not me. Trust me, I will only confuse you more than you already are.
