MIAMI (March 2, 2015) – FOX Sports Florida, the statewide television home of the Miami Marlins, announced today the network will produce and televise 150 Marlins regular season games as part of the 2015 Major League Baseball season.

 

FOX Sports Florida will kick off the season on Opening Day with a special 90-minute pregame show, beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, April 6, when the Marlins host the Atlanta Braves at Marlins Park. Home and away game telecasts will feature half-hour Marlins LIVE pregame shows and all will offer extended postgame coverage from site.

 

Tommy Hutton returns to the broadcast booth with expert commentary, marking his 19th season as FOX Sports Florida’s Marlins’ television analyst. Rich Waltz returns for his 11th year as play-by-play announcer, and Craig Minervini is back for his 14th season as pregame host and in-game reporter.

 

“Mr. Marlin,” former Marlins star Jeff Conine, continues on FOX Sports Florida’s broadcast team and will provide expert analysis on Marlins LIVE pre- and postgame shows for all home game telecasts, while former Marlins outfielder Preston Wilson returns for his fourth season, delivering added commentary and analysis. Former Marlins pitcher Carl Pavano also returns as analyst on Marlins LIVE after making his TV debut last season. Finally, FOX Sports Florida welcomes a new face to the broadcast team as Jessica Blaylock will serve as in-game reporter and host of “Inside the Marlins” episodes.

 

In addition to the 150 games on FOX Sports Florida, the Marlins will appear twice on the ‘FOX Saturday Baseball Game of the Week’ national schedule against the Baltimore Orioles on May 23, at 7:15 p.m., and vs. the Chicago Cubs on July 4, at 7:15 p.m. The Marlins will also be televised nationally twice on FOX Sports 1 against the Braves on Saturday, May 16, at 1:10 p.m., and Tuesday, July 23, at 7:10 p.m. vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.

 

Going beyond just coverage of games, FOX Sports Florida’s partnership with the Marlins provides fans with more opportunities to get to know the team and its players. Seven half-hour episodes of FOX Sports Florida’s popular Inside the Marlins are planned this year and will include player and coaches profiles, with exclusive behind-the-scenes stories and interviews, plus episodes offering inside access to other aspects of the team and its operations.

 

New to the network this year will be the start of an all-new series entitled “Marlins Clubhouse.” “Marlins Clubhouse” is a magazine style television series aimed at showcasing stories in and around Marlins baseball. Hosted by Preston Wilson, “Marlins Clubhouse” will premiere new episodes on the first Friday of every month before the start of the Marlins LIVE pregame show on the network. “Marlins Clubhouse” will target and engage young baseball viewers, with an emphasis on kids ages 13 to 18, by highlighting local baseball success stories. Episodes will include segments ranging from Coaches Corner to South Florida’s Rising Stars, so be sure to tune in on FOX Sports Florida all year long for must-watch episodes of “Marlins Clubhouse.”

Weird that they didnt do that quirky thing where they don't televise the games against the Rays but we get to watch the Rays broadcast instead. That was always a way to add a couple extra games to the schedule while not saying we aired them.

 

Also does that Clubhouse show mean Billy's Bunch is gone? Not that I care but its what came to mind when I read about the new youth oriented show.

Thought this was of note, from the Herald...

 

"In all, 154 of 162 Marlins games will be televised. Of the eight that aren’t on TV, all are on weekday afternoons except a Thursday night 10 p.m. game in San Diego on July 23."

 

Good to hear because I hate working a long day, coming home and thinking "Man I need to watch the game tonight" just to find that it isn't televised.

MLB.TV works fine if you have decent bandwidth, but is shit if you can only manage 2-3Mbs, which is standard here in the UK.

 

The main problem was that the shitting Flash-based player always tried to connect to the best stream possible. It did this by downloading the stream and then playing it at the max rate ... and then freezing and restarting because it couldn't maintain the stream. It would loop over and over and over and over again ... sometimes as long as 20 minutes before connecting at the correct stream. I think it was June before I saw one of Henderson's first pitches.

 

Then, when the ads came on, the stream would disconnect and you'd have to go through the whole looping thing again.

 

A group of us did some digging and found that the ad stream came down in a different, Hi-res stream separate from the game stream - which carried on underneath the ad stream. So, you'd be watching the 1.8Mb stream, and then a 1.8Mb ad stream would start, so suddenly your internet was streaming 3.6Mb, which you wouldn't have the bandwidth for, so the stream would disconnect.

 

Then some guy found the solution - install ad-block which blocked the ad stream! It worked!!

 

We went on the MLB.TV forum and told everyone who was having problems the great news ... and MLB.TV banned us all from the forums. I'm still banned, ten months later.

 

They say they've rolled out a "new" player. It better be HTML5 based and not Flash. Who the fuck uses Flash these days? Gonna have a peep at Yankees v Phils but I bet it's as shit as ever.

Irrelevant with mlb.tv

 

​what do you live in Canada or something?

 

​Watch your mouth! lol I had the same thing in Montreal so the blackouts really didn't apply. 

 

But I think you can add the two Rays telecasts which should bring the number to 156. 

 

The only incredibly annoying thing is having to watch SNY Mets broadcasts for games agains the Mets.

​Was the program you used Ad Block plus? If so that is a great program and it blocks out a ton of ads along with those coming in from youtube. The player from MLB is still using Flash though. lol

I've had it since 2009. Last year was god awful. This year I'm just getting extra innings on direct tv and getting MLB TV for free with it.

 

What issues did u have last year? Mine was perfect 

 

​Yeah I'm curious too. I had maybe 1-2 hours total downtime, and I watch over 200 games a season. Whenever I had an issue, it was either because I had downloads going, comcast fucking me, or my kid would punch the router. 

 

The buffering was terrible, short but frequent.I was getting 17 download speed all year, same as previous years. I was streaming from Xbox one instead of 360 so unless that had something to do with it I don't know. But with that said the ipad wasn't that much better.

 

i remember quite a few times guys in game day forum said they were having problems too.  I didn't think it was just me.

​Yeah, it's still the old crappy player. The new one will be rolled out during ST.

 

No response at all about being over-charged. Seems lots of people have been overcharged, lol.
