  1. This does apply for the Tampa TV Market (Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Polk, Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, etc.) but all other TV markets in North and Central Florida will be blacked out from seeing the game on out-of-market packages (Pensacola, Panama City, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando) on both MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv. Tampa gets an exemption from Marlins blackouts because of proximity to Tropicana Field.
  2. Opening Day is a huge marketing opportunity for the Marlins including young stars and a updated ballpark. Also, the Marlins TV deal ends after this year. Based on what the Rays got the Marlins should get at least a $100 Million per year TV deal. Marlins have two championships, are committed to Miami, and have an owner that is committed to the long-term. ALSO: If the Rays leave the Marlins will be the only team in the 3rd largest state in the country.
  3. This is even worse than originally thought. The South Florida viewing area will get the Marlins and Rays (on Fox Sports Sun) even though the Heat have a game starting at 7:30 PM tomorrow night. North/Central Florida will only get the Rays even though the Magic game starts only 30 Minutes earlier than the Heat game on Fox Sports Florida. So to Review FS Sun (South Florida Area) 3-4 Rays Live 4-7 Rays vs Astros 7-7:30 Heat Live 7:30-10 Heat Game FS Florida (North/Central Florida Area) 3-4:30 Red Bull Racing 4:30-6:30 Inside The Magic 6:30-7 Magic Live 7-9
  4. They can request it however the Magic will take priority once their pregame show starts at 6:30 which is fine. From 3:00-6:30 they could show Marlins Live and the first 7 innings of the Marlins game instead of Inside the Magic which chronicles an NBA team that has won 0 Championships and hasn’t made the playoffs since 2012.
  5. The way Fox Sports Florida and Sun Sports are programmed is very unusual especially for NBA and NHL games. The way it’s broken down is: Miami-Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach-Fort Pierce, and Naples-Fort Myers viewers get the Miami Heat and Florida Panthers. Everyone North of those areas get the Orlando Magic and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Both MLB teams (Marlins, Rays) are supposed to be broadcast statewide. MLB Out-of-Market packages blackout the Marlins in the entire state of Florida. It’s not MLB’s fault though because Fox Sports Florida has the exclusive rights to broadcast Marl
  6. For some reason, Fox Sports Florida has decided to forego airing the Marlins Opening Day game vs Colorado tomorrow in North and Central Florida. There is an Orlando Magic game airing at 7:00 PM but the pregame doesn’t start until 6:30 PM. They could have showed the Marlins game from 4-6:30 but instead they are showing meaningless Magic reruns. Hope this changes when Fox Sports Florida and Fox Sports Sun are sold. UPDATE: This is even worse than originally thought. The South Florida viewing area will get the Marlins and Rays (on Fox Sports Sun) even though the Heat have a game
