Regionalization for October 11 League Championship Series Split National Telecast FOX Sports, the exclusive broadcast television home of Major League Baseball's postseason, begins its coverage of MLB's League Championship Series on Tuesday, October 10 (8 p.m. ET), when the Oakland A's host the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the ALCS. On Wednesday, October 11 (8 p.m. ET), FOX Sports provides a split-national telecast of Game 2 of the ALCS and Game 1 of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets from Shea Stadium. Areas of natural geographic interest receive ALCS Game 2 on their local FOX broadcast affiliate, while a simultaneous live feed of NLCS Game 1 is available on the FX cable network. Those areas of the country receiving NLCS Game 1 on their local FOX broadcast affiliate are able to watch ALCS Game 2 on the FX cable network. FX is widely available in over 90 million U.S. households.


In addition, FOX Sports has set up alternate channels with satellite providers DIRECTV and DISH/Echostar to ensure that both games are available to subscribers of the country's largest DBS companies.


DirecTV: NLCS Game 1 ? Channel 246

DirecTV: ALCS Game 2 ? Channel 248



DISH/Echostar ? Channel 136

DISH/Echostar ? Channel 137



This October marks the sixth consecutive year that the League Championship Series round has featured a night of split-national coverage, and the reason for televising both games simultaneously is simple. Far more people are available to watch television in prime time than in daytime. Among all persons age two or older, television usage is +90% higher at 8 p.m. than it is at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays in October. The difference is even more dramatic among the key demographics that drive a baseball audience. Among males age 18-34, viewing is +143% greater in prime time than daytime, +151% greater for men 18-49 and +152% for men 25-54.


This weekend, host Jeanne Zelasko and analyst Kevin Kennedy welcome White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski to the MLB on FOX pregame show for analysis of AL & NL Championship Series games. Pierzynski will be in-studio on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15.
