Redbirds Blacked Out
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Cardinals baseball was in San Francisco Sunday, but for some in St. Louis, it was not on TV.
This year the Cardinals games are on cable under contract with the Fox Sports Midwest television network. Problem is, one of the area’s largest cable providers, AT&T U-Verse, was not allowed to carry the game.
AT&T and 23 other cable companies in the area are in a contract dispute with Fox Sports.
Fox had said that if the cable companies couldn’t come to terms, they’d be cut off. On Sunday, they were.
Fox Sports Midwest says it will stay that way until the cable companies agree to terms.
Charter Communications, the largest cable provider in the area, and the two main satellite TV providers, continue to carry the Cardinals, as does KMOX Radio and the Cardinal Radio Network.
